What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Belt Colony has finished the first stage of development, and we'd love to get players involved... There's quite a few things you can do and more is on the way. We are really interested in any and all feedback you can provide, in as much detail as possible. We'd like to invite everyone to join us in this.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Belt Colony is getting closer to finished, but there are still several features that we wish to add before it is ready. We expect the game to stay in early access for several months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version currently has 9 large asteroids that players can land on to mine ore, and some of the asteroids have stations on them that players can visit for tasks. The player starts out on the home base where the player mines ore, earn credits, build buildings and buys a spaceship. In the full version we plan to add more large asteroids, stations, belters, buildings and equipment. We also plan to work on the tasks and talks with belters.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access build has the main gameplay in place: mining rocks, base, upgrading the base, selling ore, trading ore, flying the spaceship, drill mining, visiting other belters, etc.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to increase the price as we complete improvements and testing.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will collect feedback coming from the community, and also track the game data accumulated during each game session. We will consider the information when developing the game. We hope to hear from you.”

About This Game

The year is 2040. You, an ex-sergeant, have signed a contract with a large mining corporation in the Belt. Mine ore, build out your outpost, travel to nearby asteroids and collaborate with other belters.

Mining outpost on an asteroid


Operate a mining outpost on an asteroid. Mine valuable ore from large and small rocks on the surface. Sell the ore to earn credits (the currency in the Belt in the future). Build out your mining outpost with a landing pad, drone pad, storage, solar panels, refineries, and more.

Mine ore from rocks


There are lots of large and small rocks on the surface that can easily be mined for ore.

Sell ore & buy upgrades, equipment, buildings, repairs, etc.


You can sell the ore that you mine using the management user interface in the outpost. Just click the "sell ore" button, and you will sell ore at the current market price and earn credits. You can use the credits to buy upgrades, equipment, buildings, repairs, food, water, etc.

Buy a spaceship


When you have earned enough credits from selling ore, you will be able to buy a spaceship. You can now mine ore more efficiently and travel to other asteroids.

Belters


As you venture out into the Belt, you will meet others. You can earn credits by doing tasks for others.

Space stations


There are several space stations scattered throughout the Belt. Most of them are owned by United Space Corporation and Utopia Arura Corporation.

Drones


Drones are very useful for hauling ore and small equipment.

Extractors


Extractors are specialized drilling and extraction rigs that can be used to extract different types of ore beneath the surface of the asteroid.

Features


  • Mining ores
  • Base building and upgrades
  • Deploy mining rigs and control drones
  • Low gravity and zero gravity physics simulations
  • Spacesuit and spaceship fuel, oxygen and integrity mechanics
  • Explore and mine large asteroids that are 1 to 3 km (0.6 to 2 miles) in diameter
  • Visit and earn credits at the many space stations in the belt
  • Easy to play

Chill out on in the Belt


Enjoy several hours of gameplay in solitude in the Asteroid Belt, mining for ore, operating your outpost, flying your spaceship, floating in micro-gravity, etc. This may be a good game for you if you like space games and are tired of action-packed shooting games.

Asteroid Belt


Scattered in an orbit around the sun, just beyond the orbit of Mars, are bits and pieces of rock left over from the dawn of the solar system. The asteroid belt has countless small asteroids, and between 700,000 and 1.7 million asteroids with a diameter of 1 km or more. The game is set somewhere in the Belt where there are several large asteroids in the proximity of each other. We have made many large high-quality asteroids of several kilometers (and several miles) in diameter. You can land on the surface of any of these asteroids and mine them. We have put quite a bit of effort into making the asteroids realistic.
