Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Stationeers is an exceptionally complex game. By releasing the game to the community we're able to test our assumptions so far and ensure the focus of the game and our design decisions are in the right direction. This allows us to gain perspective on the game directly from our players, and factor this in as we develop new features, systems, and content.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game has been a very long time coming, developed after attempts at other games of a roughly similar nature. Basically - we're not in a rush! We have prepared a detailed roadmap of what we have planned so far but after feedback (and a dose of reality!) from our community we will announce a second phase roadmap. This means we're talking at least a year of development in Early Access. If a year seems long, consider that the longer the game is in live development, the bigger the scope of the game can grow, and the more input the community can have.”

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

“During development of Stationeers so far we have deliberately kept the scope quite limited, both in general features, design features, content, and usability. Working with the community we expect to extend both how you play the game (such as dedicated servers, rather than directly hosting), the way you play the game (control revisions, new mechanics and features) and why you play the game (new game loops and content).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We've had a great deal of fun at the studio in the development of Stationeers. It's fully playable, and quite well optimized, for you in singleplayer or with a small group of friends in multiplayer. We consider what has been done so far as an entirely complete game loop and experience, and our work from here is about giving the game more depth. Significant work has already been done making the game robust, so even when there are bugs the game should recover reasonably gracefully.”

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

“Our current plan is to increase the price, probably substantially, when the game is fully released. However no firm decisions have been made on pricing, and none will be made without publicly discussing with the community. If you have thoughts on pricing, please get involved here or on social media!”

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

“The community engagement is an integral component of our development. We only want you to buy the game if you're prepared to roll up your sleeves and give us your feedback! We are experimenting with live development through twitch live-streams. You can watch previous broadcasts on the Rocketwerkz Youtube Channel. If you want to discuss the games development directly you can join our Official Discord. Use all these methods to give suggestions, watch the game grow, and find out how we're making the game even better!”

About This Game

Stationeers puts you in control of the construction and management of a space station either by yourself in single player, or online multiplayer with your friends. Inspired by the beloved Space Station 13, complex atmospheric, electrical, manufacturing, medical, agriculture, and gravitational systems require your thought and management at all times.

Features

  • Detailed construction system rewards well-designed architectural, atmospheric, and electrical plans.
  • Atmospherics system includes: temperature, pressure, combustion, gas mixtures, water, and fire.
  • Full physics on dynamic items in the world, including atmospheric effects such as wall fatigue, and explosive decompression.
  • Various dangerous environments to explore and develop including exotic planets, and asteroid belts.
  • Fully deformable voxel terrain on worlds and asteroids enhances mining and exploration.
  • Build complex systems using dozens of logic devices.
  • Write custom programs using Integrated circuits and assembly code to automate your systems.
  • Farm livestock and grow plants, not only for food, but also as a integral part of the station’s atmospherics.
  • Construct complex factories in space using machines, conveyors, and computers.
  • Use the medical system to cure ailments faced by other Stationeers.
  • Designed from the ground up for multithreading to ensure great multiplayer performance and scalability.



Stationeers is designed for hardcore players who want a game that is systems oriented. Full utilization and optimization of these complex systems will only come from great knowledge and practice. The game presents a variety of science-based survival problems that you must address. Resource and time pressures will drive your initial designs, but the demands of a thriving station will guide you later.



Space is empty and the planets are unforgiving to human life. You and your friends initially must decide how to meet your basic needs. Longer term, you will need to engineer solutions to power, heat, resource, and atmospheric problems. Build the most efficient systems you can by utilizing machines and programmable computers to develop automated systems.



Whether on a distant lonely planet, or deep inside an asteroid field, you control every aspect of building & running your station or mothership. Harvest nearby resources and use a wide range of tools to construct the ultimate station. Everything your station requires will be built and managed by you and your friends.



What do you do with all that ore you mine? Process it through machines and turn it into goods for more construction of course! There are lots of specialist machines to build and configure such as smelters, sorters, centrifuges, stackers, conveyors, fabricators and more.



Stations are generally safe locations, but motherships are flyable stations which allow you to leave that safety behind. These are excellent platforms for your exploration and resource gathering efforts. They are constructed in the same way as stations, but require complex machinery to manage their engines, life support, and combat systems.
