After a successful Greenlight campaign, Persona and Pixel Studios’ strategy sim is now available on Steam Early Access for PC, Mac and Linux.
Earth Space Colonies is a strategy-simulation game that challengers the player to build space colonies throughout the Solar system. The first destination in the Early Access version is Mars. The main goal is to establish a self-sustaining colony and to terraform a red wasteland into a green oasis. The player can build anything from high-tech factories, hotels, and military bases to space elevators and terraforming devices.
Game also features a crafting system to combine produced goods with a raw materials to create new and unique items, which the player, utilizing rockets, maglev launchers and space elevators can then trade via the interplanetary commerce features. It will also be possible to colonize other worlds or defend a mining colony on the dwarf planet Ceres or to explore the subsurface ocean on Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon, to name a few. Building multiple colonies on different worlds at the same time is one of the games’ key components.
