Colonize an alien world
Build a new home for humanity on a world with a low-oxygen atmosphere, extreme electrical storms, shard storms, dust devils, deadly toxic gas eruptions from some of Aven Prime's many geothermal vents, and days so long they have their own seasons. Explore a variety of biomes, from the lush wetlands environment to the much less habitable desert and arctic biomes.
- Meet the locals - Encounter a variety of alien life forms, including giant sandworms, deadly plague spores, and a vicious fungal infection known as 'The Creep.'
- Supervise your colonists - Settling a new world can be stressful. As a new colony governor, you'll need to work overtime to help your colonists deal with their situation. Experience a full colony simulation with over a dozen moral factors. Set social policies to influence the behaviour of your colony, hold referendum elections to prove to your colonists that you deserve to keep the job, and give your colonists adequate jobs, health care, entertainment, food quality, policing, and much more. As you earn the respect of your colonists, you can rise in rank from Colony Governor to Expedition President.
- Discover the past - The world of Aven Prime holds many secrets. Play through a full single-player campaign and participate in a story that reveals some of the many secrets of this brave new world. Alternatively, you can customize any mission in sandbox mode.
- Build the future - Use construction drones to build dozens of types of structures to house your colonists, grow food, store resources, manage air quality, mine ore, convert resources, perform research and manufacturing, and much more. Then, when you're ready, enhance your existing buildings through several upgrade tiers.
