The Colonists Early Access Release Date Announced

Please feast your poorly-optimized human eyes.

STRAIGHT FROM THE DEVS: We also have a release date for the Early Access version: November 9th 2017.  The game can now be Wishlisted on Steam.

The Colonists is a settlement building game inspired by classic titles like The Settlers and the Anno series.

You take control of a team of robots tasked with settling a newly-discovered planet, preparing the ground for an influx of inhabitants from their homeworld.

You'll advance from the Stone Age to the Space Age as you build the infrastructure for your colony by constructing complex road, boat, train and drone transport systems.

Harvest natural resources, conquer other civilisations or trade with new allies. Explore, research, manage, tweak and refine to your heart's content!

The Colonists will feature a single player campaign, a free-play mode, competitive multiplayer and co-op.

It's being developed by Richard Wallis of Codebyfire, an extremely talented designer and coder who is based at Bristol Games Hub.
