Manage a group of colonists as they attempt to survive underground on an alien world. Automated machine construction was sent ahead to create the Mercury facility, but something has gone wrong and your colonists awake to find the facility in ruin. Build structures, research new technologies and send out expeditions to the surface to ensure the survival of your new found home away from home.
Mercury Fallen is heavily inspired by games such as Banished, Dungeon Keeper II and RimWorld. While there is no plan for combat, there will certainly be challenges your colonists will face.
Hope everyone is healthy and staying safe. Since the release of the Farming & Harming update I’ve been working hard on the next batch of content. The next update will primarily focus on changes to surface content. The first batch of changes will be coming to the Experimental branch on Steam soon.
The word on the street is that expeditions in Mercury Fallen require too much micro management and become a bit of a chore. To resolve this, points of interest will be chosen during expedition creation. The expedition team will automatically travel to each POI and back to the facility to dock. A notification will appear each time the expedition team has arrived at a POI with an expedition report.
I’m also experimenting with changing the food requirement to use separate expedition supply items that provide travel rations. The amount of travel rations required would depend on the total travel distance and the amount of passengers.
Points Of Interest are getting updated to provide more up front information regarding what is required and a risk assessment. This will allow for better choices when settings up an expedition.
POI generation will no longer use the Comm Station and radar towers, but instead become visible as you uncover the surface.
Harvest-able surface resources will no longer be infinite or mine-able on any tile. Surface resources can be scanned for and, once detected, will appear in explored areas.
I’m working to bring the first batch of changes to the Experimental Branch on Steam soon. For those interested, this will be a great way to help test and provide feedback on the many additions and changes.
Thanks for all the great feedback and stay safe!
