Little Bots Building Big Colonies

The Colonists will push your buttons in all the right ways.

Pack up your favourite suitcase with your most prized nuts and bolts and blast off with The Colonists to build your very own robot settlement on a newfound planet. Mode 7 and Codebyfire are over the moon as they confirm that their delightfully chilled cornucopia of colony construction The Colonists will be releasing very soon.

About the Game

Command a team of self-replicating robots designed to simulate human civilization. They have escaped from Earth and only you can help them search the galaxy for a new home where they can fulfill their misguided dream of becoming human.

Harvest natural resources, set up farming and food production, conquer other settlements or trade with new allies. With two separate mission tracks, The Colonists puts the choice in your hands: either create sprawling settlements in peace or race to compete against AI colonies in military winner-takes-all scenarios.

Explore, research, manage, tweak, and refine to your heart’s content as you experience old-school strategy gameplay with gorgeous modern aesthetics.

The Colonists takes inspiration from classic titles like The Settlers and the Anno series.

The game will be priced at $24.99.
