The Pioneers : surviving desolation is an upcoming 3D space survival/simulation indie video game where players will have to manage a bunch of specialists crashed on Io. From the macro management of a space station to the micro management of the characters, The Pioneers will challenge players to survive in a harsh and unforgiving environment.
