Oxygen Not Included just got a major update & a new animated short

Posted by , | Views: 6,493

Oxygen Not Included, the space colony sim from Klei has a new major update out with another lovely animated short to watch. This is the same update I wrote about before while it was in beta, it's just pushed out to everyone now.

I have to admit, that gave me a good chuckle. Although, it does make me think about their future plans and I assume they've left the ending as it is to be some sort of teaser for future updates. Escape the asteroid? Maybe—can't wait to find out!

It adds in a whole new biome, the Space Biome. This allows you to dig right up to the surface of the asteroid, which includes solar light for a decent source of energy with solar panels, meteor showers bringing you free resources along with the danger they pose from smashing down. It also adds in Steel, Ceramics, Glass, and other basic materials.

They also upgraded the Critter system, giving you completed artwork for all types of critters from eggs to trapped critters along with an updated critter economy. Find out more in the update announcement.

I've tried a few times to reach the surface of the asteroid, but I honestly suck. It's one of a few games that I'm horrible at, yet it's so compelling to repeatedly play. Amazing art as expected from Klei, funny and aggravating (sometimes as the same time) and absolutely rammed full of content now for hours worth of play.

You can grab Oxygen Not Included on Steam with 20% off until June 21st. For me the discount shows up as 40% off, so you may see it higher, probably depending on what you already own from Klei.

Absolutely recommended!

Klei are having a weekend sale as well and they are really good at supporting linux so you can pick up some of their other games for cheap

These animations are so well done. Love it. Love the game. Love Klei in general! Need to play more of it. Need to finish other games too! Aaaargh. I need to go have a talk with my boss. These 50 or so hours I spend at work need to be spent playing all those games I have no time for.

I just noticed that it only says 40% when I'm logged in. But when I opened it in a private window, it says 20% off. Since you can't buy anything without logging in, there must be some other reason for this difference.

Yeah weird, not mentioned at all, but possibly due to owning previous games. Have mentioned that now, cheers.

For the record...

KLei does have a permanent 20% discount for anyone that has ever bought one of their titles before. This is why people are seeing 40% off while logged into steam. This discount exists even when they are not having a publisher wide sale.

Even some of their old releases qualify for this loyalty discount. I was able to get Oxygen not included for 40% off during a sale they had back in November. 20% for the sale at the time and 20% off because I had Shank 1/2 in my library from an old humble bundle.

That explains a lot. My first purchase on Steam on the day I registered was a Klei game.

very fun and addicting gameplay. at first it reminded me a lot of rimworld, but more of a 2D platformer. but after a few hours it gets a bit more complicated and more diverse from rimworld. the whole room bonus dynamic is something you really have to put a lot of forethought into.
