Half way across the galaxy with limited resources, a mega corporation looking over your shoulder and a ragtag crew expecting a pay cheque, it's up to you to survive and turn a profit. You have a base to build and hostile alien threats to neutralise, but ignore your crew and the colony is doomed. Each colonist has a mind of their own, so keeping them safe, happy and alive is no easy feat. Nurture your crew and they’ll team up to protect your intergalactic empire, forget to pay them and you’d better post a guard at the reactor!

As a commander of military and commercial installations on Earth, Blackwater Industries wants to see how you handle the rest of the galaxy. In Space Colony your career is in the hands of an unruly crew, all looking to escape life back on Earth. Choosing from more than 100 different buildings, it’s up to you to design and build a colony that meets their needs. Before you shell out your credits on iron extraction and lucrative space chicken production remember that without laser defences, a sauna and a half-decent restaurant nobody is going to want to work for you.


GOG HD Edition

Save the Colony! Your staff are brawling, the Harvester Robot is happily chain sawing its way through the oxygen supply, and small, furry, and troublesome aliens have conquered the disco. Welcome home! Each of your colonists has a mind of their own so remember the golden rule: a happy colonist is a productive colonist. Ignore them and their needs and they’ll pick fights, argue, and even get depressed. Nurture them, however, and they will work hard for you, become friends, and maybe even fall in love! You’ve mastered building simulated life on Earth. Let’s see how you do with the rest of the galaxy. Welcome to Space Colony, where your life is in the hands of an unruly group of fellow space rejects. With over 100 buildings at your disposal, it’s up to you to build a colony that meets all the colonists’ needs and keeps them safe and happy. So before you shell out all your credits on iron extraction and space chicken production to bring in the cash, remember, that without a gym, a sauna, or a half-decent restaurant, nobody’s going to want to work for you!

  • Learn diplomacy or charge up the shields. Contact with 20 alien races will give you plenty of opportunities to decide.
  • Inspire your crew to work in harmony and watch productivity increase. Make them unhappy, and you’d better post a guard at the reactor.
  • Increase your wealth and power by mining and selling minerals, or use your resources to create items to improve your colony.

Steam Edition

Created exclusively for Steam, this remastered version of Space Colony features a new Galaxy mode 'Obar' mini-campaign, Steam Workshop support, achievements, trading cards and Steam Cloud for saved games. Space Colony: Steam Edition is the definitive version of the sci-fi base builder for fans of the original, the builder genre and the Stronghold series, with which it shares DNA in both gameplay and an irreverent sense of humour.

Also supported are settings for HD graphics unavailable in the original version, allowing players to view their entire base on a single screen! Detect alien life forms early and counter-attack before they get near your crew, keep an eye on all workers at once or harvest resources off-base while making sure everyone visits the colony psychologist.


Features

  • Remastered for Steam - New 'Obar' mini-campaign, Achievements, Trading Cards, Steam Workshop, Steam Cloud support and a re-balanced Easy Mode.
