The Making of Space Colony

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqnWcepP8hQ
A few weeks ago we traveled to the stars to record 'The Making of Space Colony', our intergalactic base builder rich with Swedish bikers, space chickens, orbital golf courses and the galaxy’s answer to velociraptors!

2003 was a simpler time... Constructing elaborate space stations, paying your crew and melting alien threats into small puddles of goo while listening to Chromeo was the name of the game. Today we find ourselves looking back at how Simon and co ended up following on from the first Crusader with this creative offshoot.

Join Simon and Paul as they recall the trials and tribulations of developing Space Colony off the back of two unique medieval strategy titles and collectively switching gear as a studio. From crafting a brand new armory of sci-fi art assets to designing gameplay around oxygen supplies, our veteran devs take us down memory lane in this latest ‘Making Of’ episode from the team.

Winter may be coming but for now we enjoy the long summer. Also cheap videogames!

To celebrate the launch of Steam’s 2018 Summer Sale we have added massive discounts to all Firefly Studios titles, Stronghold or otherwise! We have also traveled back to a simpler time of comic books, trading cards and charming 8-bit graphics. Why? To teach those strangely fashionable 90s kids a thing or two about the future of castle sieging!

About This Game



Half way across the galaxy with limited resources, a mega corporation looking over your shoulder and a ragtag crew expecting a pay cheque, it's up to you to survive and turn a profit. You have a base to build and hostile alien threats to neutralise, but ignore your crew and the colony is doomed. Each colonist has a mind of their own, so keeping them safe, happy and alive is no easy feat. Nurture your crew and they’ll team up to protect your intergalactic empire, forget to pay them and you’d better post a guard at the reactor!

As a commander of military and commercial installations on Earth, Blackwater Industries wants to see how you handle the rest of the galaxy. In Space Colony your career is in the hands of an unruly crew, all looking to escape life back on Earth. Choosing from more than 100 different buildings, it’s up to you to design and build a colony that meets their needs. Before you shell out your credits on iron extraction and lucrative space chicken production remember that without laser defences, a sauna and a half-decent restaurant nobody is going to want to work for you.

Steam Edition


Created exclusively for Steam, this remastered version of Space Colony features a new Galaxy mode 'Obar' mini-campaign, Steam Workshop support, achievements, trading cards and Steam Cloud for saved games. Space Colony: Steam Edition is the definitive version of the sci-fi base builder for fans of the original, the builder genre and the Stronghold series, with which it shares DNA in both gameplay and an irreverent sense of humour.

Also supported are settings for HD graphics unavailable in the original version, allowing players to view their entire base on a single screen! Detect alien life forms early and counter-attack before they get near your crew, keep an eye on all workers at once or harvest resources off-base while making sure everyone visits the colony psychologist.
