What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want the players to enjoy Biotope as early as possible and therefore decided to go Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Early Access phase will be at least half, but no longer than a year, to get more content ready and polish what is already implemented.”

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

“The release version will be more polished and existing features will have more options, e.g. more chemical and biological stats have to be managed. However, the addition of features and content will not stop with the release version. We are planning for a long product life cycle and many free updates, as well as content for Biotope.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version is playable with most of its core features in place. Some features lack depth which will be added during the Early Access.”

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

“Possibly. We evaluate the pricing regularly, as the game gains features, expands in scope and moves closer to the final release. However, everyone who joins us during Early Access will absolutely have access to the full version of the game, no matter how large it grows!”

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

“Biotope was planned to be a pleasant and relaxing experience, so we hope to get valuable feedback from the community. This might change smaller details in user experience or even add additional content to our ever-growing roadmap.”

About This Game



BIOTOPE - Aquarium Simulator is the first and only photorealistic aquarium simulator to date. Biotope makes it possible to create populations of fishes and plants and actively influence their complete life cycle.

Face strategic challenges and manage the expansion and operation of the aquarium, with a limited budget. Cultivate, breed and trade in fishes and plants.

Use authentic equipment such as filters pumps and lamps to preserve your biotope and create ideal living conditions for your fishes and plants.

Many decorative objects are available to you to make beautiful and unusual biotopes.

Depending on the quality and performance of the individual components, their durability and impact on the entire ecosystem of the aquarium will change.

  • Entry: Choose from three Starter Kits: Empty Tank (Tutorial), Amazon or Malawi Aquarium
  • Budget: Use your monthly budget and keep an eye on the statistics!
  • Shopping: Browse the Blue World Store
  • The building blocks of life: Breed healthy and robust animals to increase the DNA rating of your fishes to the maximum!
  • Stress reduction: Take care of your fishes and keep their stress levels low. A stressed fish will quickly get sick and will not reproduce.
  • Decorate your aquarium: Create your biotope according to the preferences and needs of your fishes, and they will thank you with good breeding values and offspring.
  • Complete quests and earn additional budget for the expansion of the aquarium.
