What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We can think of a nearly infinite list of blocks, jobs and features that we could add to Colony Survival. We'd like to keep working on it for a long time, but we'd also like to hear feedback from players. The basics of the game are ready, so now we'd like to welcome other people to play the game and voice their suggestions!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game could be fully and definitively released within a year, but if there is a lot of support we'd like to keep adding new features for a longer period!”

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

“We'd like to add news jobs, more blocks, different factions, new monsters and new biomes.
  • Animal husbandry: let your colonists care for horses, sheep and other animals
  • New biomes: cross the ocean to discover a new continent with new content
  • Science: develop new technologies!
  • New monsters: stronger, faster and more dangerous!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The basics of the game are done. Multiplayer is functional. You can start a colony and recruit farmers, miners, guards, smelters, bakers, crafters and foresters. At night, monsters attack your colony. There are multiple biomes, ranging from arctic areas to fertile jungles.
Some helpful but non-essential features like dropping things from your inventory aren't present yet. Colonists don't have a lot of animations.”

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

“The early access version is discounted compared to the definitive version.”

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

“We'd like to fix all bugs players encounter while playing Colony Survival. We want to add features that are in high demand, and will consider proposals for new content.”

About This Game

Dynamic 3D Pathfinding


Both colonists and monsters can find their way in your world. Build bridges, tunnels, stairs, overpasses and underpasses to make sure your colonists get where they want to go, and monsters don't! Plant a banner to start your colony. As you recruit more colonists, more monsters will try to invade your colony! Build walls, dig moats and construct forts to deal with the increasing threat.

Dozens of different jobs, unlockable with science


Use an extensive science system to unlock jobs, blocks, upgrades and new weapons! Your colony will start small, with a couple of berry farmers, slingers and a copper miner. Expand your colony and start using new metals like bronze, iron and steel. Producing them will require new fuels like charcoal and cokes. Use more advanced metals to unlock crossbows and matchlock guns for your guards! Add wheat farmers, bakers, flax farmers, tailors and many other jobs to your colony.

Explore and settle a large, diverse world


Large, advanced colonies are able to unlock the glider and Colony Starter Kits, allowing them to settle new lands. Take to the sky and explore a world with multiple continents and biomes. Start a colony in far-off lands to get access to new jobs, crops and resources.

Co-op: play with friends without problems


Easily launch a co-op server from the main menu, and invite friends to join your world. Share ownership of a single colony with multiple friends, or build your own colonies and trade items and science. It's also possible to use our advanced server tool to set up a more complex system. Extensive mod support allows players to customize their experience exactly as they want.

The complete package: lots of settings, fan translations, mods, cheats and more!


Colony Survival contains everything you'd hope to find in a game -except for proper animations.

  • Translations: fans from all over the world have translated the game into their native language. Play the game in German, Japanese, Russian, Chinese, Spanish, French or any other of the many supported languages!
  • Cheats: bored of playing the way it's intended? Use cheats to quickly recruit more colonists, spawn blocks and unlock research.
  • Detailed graphics settings: don't like bloom or depth of field? Want to adjust the FOV? Change it quickly in the graphics menu.
  • Game settings: turn off monsters if you want to build in peace. Or allow them to spawn during the day for a difficult challenge!
  • Mods: we've developed the game to be as moddable as possible, and we're in close contact with mod developers to help them create awesome mods.
  • Advanced server tool: every player can use our intuitive server tool to host a private server for friends, or a public server for the entire community.
  • Transparent development: we explain what we're working on and why every Friday in a detailed blog. We're continuously trying to figure out what the community would like to see tweaked and added next by being active on the Steam Forums and the official Discord.
