Developer, Kodo Linija, has announced their sci-fi colony sim Stardeus will launch its Kickstarter campaign on the 16th of August. Stardeus takes inspiration from titles like RimWorld, Factorio, Dwarf Fortress, Oxygen Not Included, and FTL. I imagine this means they hope to deliver the depth of a colony management sim rarely seen among the stars.
Manage your crew in Stardeus
In Stardeus, you play as an immortal AI who has an army of robots and drones at their disposal. Like all colony sim games, how you play Stardeus is entirely up to you. Grow a human colony on your ship, sure. Start a robot uprising, why not. You can even choose to turn all your crew into human batteries to satisfy your greed for electricity. The stars really are the limit when it comes to the open-ended gameplay of Stardeus.
To really make your ship thrive you’ll need to manage your crew, both robotic and human, all offering different personalities; ensure power is sustainable; explore space with resource gathering expeditions and be sure to squash any face-hugging aliens before an infestation breaks out.
Check out the Kickstarter page if this game has piqued your interest. For me, another game in the vein of FTL could be something fun.
