Probably some of the finest work yet from Klei Entertainment, the space colony sim Oxygen Not Included has now left Early Access.

Oxygen Not Included is a space-colony simulation game. Deep inside an alien space rock your industrious crew will need to master science, overcome strange new lifeforms, and harness incredible space tech to survive, and possibly, thrive.

This isn't just Klei pushing out what was there as released, it comes along with a big update to the game too. There's a bunch of new buildings including an Ethanol Distiller, Airborne Critter Bait, Wood Burner, Duplicant Motion Sensor and more. Two new critters are included with the Pokeshell and Pip, five new plants, new animations, new types of asteroids to colonize, new foods, new biomes and…the list goes on. They've clearly put a huge amount of work into this release.

For modding, there's some big changes and improvements which includes Linux support for the OniUploader tool as well. Really nice to see Linux not being left out there!

Now that it has launched, they will focus on fixing any bugs and balancing issues. However, once that's done they will also be looking into additional content. They're not saying anything just yet, but they did note to keep an eye out for announcements and they previously mentioned DLC would be coming in future.

Do I recommend it? Absolutely! Klei are a favourite developer of mine for many reasons. Constant Linux support, awesome games and friendly developers. Oxygen Not Included especially is incredibly engrossing and the Linux version seems to work very nicely.

You can find it on Steam, it's also on sale with 33% off until August 6th.

Nice, time to buy this one.

Time to start a new colony for me. I'd like to say I've learnt from the mistakes of the previous one, but that would be lying.
