Taking inspiration from the likes of Factorio and Space Engineers, the upcoming Astro Colony will see you explore an endless voxel universe to gather resources and create an automated colony.

With the idea that you explore the galaxy to find precious materials, which you will then use to keep building up a big home-base factory. The world is voxel based and fully destructible too. So the loop would be to explore, mine, build and then explore some more while creating some fun looking machinery. It already looks like it has quite a lot to show for it too, have a look in the trailer:

Coming from polish studio Terad Games, headed up by Lukasz "Tefel" Czarnecki who previously worked for the likes of Splash Damage on projects like the Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Czarnecki was even at one point a professional StarCraft 2 player for Team Dignitas. Czarnecki emailed in about this, as they wanted to confirm to us that Linux will be supported.

You can help fund Astro Colony on Kickstarter where it has until July 29 although it has already hit the goal.

Since it's already funded we're now listing it on our dedicated Crowdfunding Page.

I always love my exploration and automation games. And they seem to have quite a lot done already, which is nice for a kickstarter. Will the Demo support Linux as well? (as this would demonstrate that Linux support won't be something they plan to do afterwards)

Oooh, nice! I will be keeping an eye on this one.

By the way, the link to the Kickstarter page is broken, it's missing an "n" at the end (currently says "descriptio").
It looks very nice !
But 10000€ budget seems very low (even without the goals)...
Another thing, i dont see any Linux/SteamOS mention on Steam.
The FAQ states: Windows, iOS, Linux (in that order)... so wait&see...

I suspect iOS should be OS X, no? Kinda weird to add a mobile platform into the mix.

Will definitely keep an eye on this one!
But unfortunately, after all the "we promised Linux, but...fuck you" Crowdfunded games, i don't pledge anymore...

Graphics don't look as good as Satisfactory, but great job on the video. I wonder how long it took them to make that video. I'm fairly interested in the game but want to see it do things better than Satisfactory or have its own unique features. Voxel based is a start. I wonder if it "works" if you know what I mean.
