Team17 and Mothership Entertainment announced today that their sci-fi city-building and management sim, Aven Colony, is now available. According to the press release, today’s release sees the culmination of several years of work for independent developer Mothership Entertainment, a four-man team of industry veterans based in Austin, Texas.
Aven Colony puts players in charge of humanity’s first extrasolar settlement, where they build and expand their small colonies into massive, sprawling cities while dealing with the challenges faced when settling on a new world.
Players can dive in to an extensive dedicated single-player campaign, where they will need to brave Aven Prime’s harsh environments with freezing winters, lightning storms, ice storms, and toxic gas clouds.
“Prepare for attacks from the local lifeforms, including giant acid-spewing sandworms, “creep spores” that infect your buildings, and “plague spores” that infiltrate your colony and infect your colonists with a deadly plague. You must protect your colony from everything the planet has to throw at them, and shape the future of the survival of the human race.”
All the single player content can also be explored in sandbox mode which allows players to tailor a full suite of options to customise the game experience including editing the starting resources, environmental events, minerals, and much more!
