Title-Summary.jpg

1 player • 60 minutes • ages 12+

You have landed with 3 other specialists on a distant planet; future home of a new civilization. You've barely set up the core of your base when a proximity alarm sounds — an incoming meteorite storm is on course to obliterate your new base! You might just have time to activate the shield generator...

Build a self-sustaining base with a powerful shield generator in the hostile environment of a distant exoplanet, before a coming meteorite storm.

  • Each worker is a unique, upgradable character with their own special abilities. Use 4 of 8 included characters in each game for a variety of combinations.
  • Mine resources, harvest water, and grow food by adding new modules onto your base.
  • Balance your focus between upgrading your base and training your founders in specialized skills.
  • To survive, increase your resource production and power up the shield generator before the storm hits!
