The Colonists is strategy settlement building game which is the kind of game I get exited about, since I grew up with games like “The Settlers” & “Anno 1602″ I had a long waiting time to get a nice building game where you can spend hours of hours figuring out on how to optimize the best conditions for your folk.
The game developers ” Codebyfire ” describe their game with great emotion & versatility, where you can explore, research, manage, tweak and refine your colony, which is composed of robots, which are programmed to settling a unknown planet to prepare the ground for the migration of their native habitants from their home world. There will be a transition system similar as in ” Age of Empires ” where you have to advance from the Stone Age to the Space Age, building as your colony grows slowly together, by constructing complex road, boat, train and drone transport systems and more! The Game will have a single player, a free-play, multiplayer and a co-op mode.
This will be the kind of game I’am for sure going to purchase when it will be released, which as indicated on their web page will be August 2017, trough Early Access.
