What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make sure our visions are in sync with the ideas of our players. Early Access allows us to collaborate with players to turn Nimbatus into the best game it can be. We plan to release updates on a regular basis.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to have Nimbatus in Early Access for about a year or longer.”

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

“The final version of Nimbatus will have more content and features. We are going to add additional drone parts, enemies, planets and missions. Also new tournaments like races and drone battles are planned to be added during Early Access.

The full version will also be fully localized in multiple languages and will utilize more Steam features like achievements and trading cards.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently offers procedurally generated star systems, a drone-building workshop, six different types of planet biomes, sensor and logic parts to build fully autonomous drones, over 50 types of drone parts and thousands of different weapon combinations.

Nimbatus also features a Sumo Tournament, during which players can build autonomous drones and let them fight against drones built by other players.

Gameplay-wise it's currently just a big sandbox. We plan to add campaign and story elements for the full release of Nimbatus.”

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

“The pricing will be consistent during the Early Access. It might increase for the full release.”

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

“All new features we implement are discussed with our community to gather feedback.
We also encourage our community to suggest their own ideas for new drone parts, game elements or other improvements. Votings for new features and improvements take place in our forums: https://strayfawnstudio.com/community/”

About This Game



Nimbatus - The Space Drone Constructor is an action-packed simulation game. Craft drones out of hundreds of different parts and explore a destructible, procedurally generated galaxy. Build autonomous drones to fight other players' creations.
Do you have what it takes to become a drone engineer?

The Nimbatus – the biggest mobile drone factory ever made - was sent out to space. Its mission is simple: To gather as much information about the universe as possible and to find the far ends of it. But beware! There are going to be many encounters hindering this mission. Being in a place far away from home, the Nimbatus is seen as an unwelcome intruder. Taking on tasks related to new discoveries, population control and environmental disasters won’t be easy. It is vital to mine rare resources, advance research and experiment with technologies to combat unknown threats and explore uncharted galaxies.

Key Features:


Create your own drones out of countless parts and explore a procedurally generated galaxy with fully destructible planets.


Complete difficult mission on alien planets or build autonomous drones using sensor and logic parts and let them fight against other drones in the arena.


Collect a variety of resources and use them to research new technology and craft powerful weapons.
