RimWorld is an extremely cool colony builder with Prison Architect inspired graphics. The latest update has been in the oven for a while, and it's big.

It features:
- A new permadeath mode
- Social relationships for your colonists
- Prison breaks
- Insect infestations
- Many more animals, some will even hunt your colonists
- And more, see the full blog update post here.

The real strength of the game is the ability to really play it how you want. You can pick between three main AI types, and then a difficulty setting to your liking. It could be incredibly challenging and full of disasters, or a relaxing colony builder—your choice.

You start off as three colonists land on the planet, and you need to build your colony from nothing.

I think it's a really great and engrossing game, and you need to give it a go. Article taken from

Will it be on steam any time? I mean I get that they don't want to lose 30% when they are raising funds but eventually I'd hope it'd get on steam.
