Hi and welcome to the Colony Game website! Colony is a new game I am starting to make and going to release!

Game Synopsis

The basis of the game is that the world is in it's last days, you are tasked with taking the remaining population upon a galactic ark to attemp to seek out and colonize a suitable planet. You have a limited amout of resources and so you have to gather them from planets that you discover.

You will also encounter other life forms that are on these planets, some will be peaceful, wile others may be hostile! You must attempt to communicate with these life forms to be able to open up trades and possibly set up colonies that coexist with them.

You must save the human race!

What stage is the game out now?

I am at the early stages of the game, I am working out the planet system and elements system first. I am thinking that the games will be short games that you can win or lose in a few hours or less, I don't (at first) want to make something that spans for days and days. So each time you fire up the game a random planet system with random resources are generated for a totally unique game. This may all change in the future, but for right now, this is my goal for the game.

I will be posting updates and some screenshots once I get more things you can actually see! and I've got some cool ideas in store for the game and I'll be elaborating on those as I work out the systems for them so stay tuned!
