The sci-fi base-building and colony sim game Stardeus is now on Steam Early Access. It’s available on Windows, MacOS, and Linux PCs, priced at $29.99. The game challenges players to build and manage a massive starship with a host of drones and human residents.

The game is a sci-fi colony management simulator that has aspects of automation, base-building and space exploration. Players take on the role of a new AI tasked with building and managing a massive starship. They’ll be supervising robots, drones, and humans, and handling construction and maintenance of their mobile colony. Players also need to respond to problems that come up like external catastrophes or the unreliable nature of the free-willed colonists.

There are a lot of things for players to do, such as crafting machinery and resources, automating production chains, and managing power and oxygen. Once everything is done, players can explore new planets, trade with merchants, and defend against violent raiders.

With the in-game Story Generator, Stardeus is able to offer emergent storytelling. There’s also modding support and countless customization options. Players can also look forward to new options and features to be added.
