Have you ever wanted to build your own space station? Trade goods and care for the inhabitants? Explore distant galaxies and take on daring missions while trying to keep your meeple alive! Meeple station is an open-ended space station simulator in the vein of Rimworld that succeeds in doing just that. Live a never ending adventure whilst trying to make the best of your ramshackle station.
Want to build a sprawling, multi levelled station that caters to your Meeple’s needs? Focus on trade, mining and research whilst keeping your hapless Meeple alive by generating power, life support wiring your station up. Set up a botany department in the basement, only to have a fuel line cut and set fire to it. Fix leaks caused by your fuel line not being maintained, or bits of your station lacking oxygen due to an open airlock. SCIENCE!
Remember kids, failure is fun. When something goes wrong, it goes REALLY wrong in Meeple Station. Your officer could decide that the airlock isn’t necessary and deconstruct it, wiping out half your station, only for a stray meteor to hit your solar array, powering down your life support while everyone is snoring away in bed. Trade any of the myriad of goods you scrounge up. Become a mining station, strip mine entire quadrants and sell the runoff to a trading faction nearby but be wary of pirates and face eating space-squids.
Explore the galaxy in search of new resources to sell and people to meet. Go anywhere you please so long as you have enough fuel and an engine! Do you want to focus on engineering? Defence and security? Refining? Set up a research lab and hope for the best! Officers can unlock new tech, but they can be a difficult (cantankerous) bunch to appease, and if you let them, they can and will run your station into the ground! Good luck captain.
Since last month’s big user-interface update, we’ve been busy implementing a host of new features, some long requested. This includes updates to the medical bay and how air ventilation work, the ability to grow vegetables and fruit to create medicine and finally, customizing your Meeple! Read on to learn more about all our updates from over the past month and our upcoming features in the works for Meeple Station.
Grow vegetables AND fruit as well as medicinal plants, which can be manufactured into medical supplies to treat wounded Meeple (sorry they aren’t free anymore, blame capitalism…).
While medical beds have been introduced to be setup in medical wards to house any injured Meeple, which they’ll seek out if hurt. Making it far easier for doctors to treat patients, instead of them chasing Meeple around the station with blood running everywhere.
Life support now creates and stores oxygen in tanks, before vents disperse oxygen into different areas of your station. Meaning there is a new utility system for ventilation, oxygen tanks, vents and a few new door types, one which blocks airflow and another that doesn’t. Therefore, you’ll need to make it a top priority to setup up vents and replace some doors when you first load up your station again! Oxygen lasts a bit so no need to worry, your Meeple should be alright, as long as you don’t forget...
One of our most highly requested features is the ability to customize your starting crew when creating a new station, and now it’s here! You can now balance traits (good and bad!) through sacrificing skills and attributes elsewhere, adding a lot of depth and the ability to experiment with your crew.
We’re excited to see what trait combinations you come up with and their benefits, or possible pitfalls. Ever see a astraphobic miner? Or a violent guard? Now you may! We’re planning to add more traits in the near future to allow for even more crazy combinations, so keep an eye out for that in an upcoming update.
Along with these features we’ve been flushing out many bugs out into hyperspace and trying to focus on the overall polish of the game (the UI update was just the start!).
