About the Game
From the developers of Don’t Starve, comes Early Access for Oxygen Not Included, a space colony survival simulation video game. Similar with Don’t Starve, Oxygen Not Included requires the player to manage and take care of a group of colonists that has needs like hunger, waste, oxygen levels, etc. Each colonist has stats that determine how efficient they are at their tasks, and the game also features a crafting system. Like the child of Terraria and Don’t Starve, Oxygen Not Included is based around base building, exploration and survival.
Build your own Base, Manage your Resources
Everything in your space colony is within your control, from excavation and resource management all the way to waste management and power production. Resource will begin depleting the moment you start the game, unfortunately, so make sure to get to digging fast if you want to survive long.
Explore Diverse New Worlds
New worlds comes easily with a push of a button, but also with a spew of wild space rocks. It’s up to you to explore and make a home out of it.
It’s here too, Stress Simulations
Lower stress levels with fun leisure activities, fancy accommodations and a great variety of food for you colony. Your colonists each have different and potentially destructive ways of reacting to stress, so it’s up to you to make sure to keep them satisfied at all costs.
It’s hot down here
Temperature control is a major issue in space; too cold and you’ll freeze, too hot and you’ll burn. If you think you can get away with temperate conditions, your colonists will suffer and eventually die.
Enhance Efficiency through Complex Piping Systems
Create and manage interlocking pipe and wiring systems to quickly deliver resources to critical areas of your base. Pick between a multitude of power sources including coal, hydrogen, natural gas or just plain ol elbow grease to prevent circuit overloads, power runoff and meltdowns. Plan out your blueprints and watch it develop into the impenetrable fortress that your colony will soon become.
Make Sure to Include Oxygen
Enter the Oxygen Overlay and watch in real time air circulating through your base. Monitor carbon dioxide levels and where it is accumulating and oversee oxygen generation processes to grow your colony into a paradise to be desired.
Waste Not Want Not
Make use of every last drop of resource to be a true base that symbolizes efficiency. Recycle waste into precious fuel, manage unbreathable gas into sweet sweet oxygen or collect the natural bodily processes of wildlife for food.
Oxygen Not Included is now available on Steam for Early Access, so if you’re interested you should head over and try it out.
