The Sweet Sounds of the Outer Colony

Text Logo reads "Outer Colony". In the background, a planet takes up three quarters of the image. It has swirling clouds, blue oceans, and green and yellow continents. Beyond the planet are stars and the edge of a warm glowing sun. Image url links to Outer Colony game Kickstarter.

Etch out an existence on the edge of space in Outer Colony, a real time strategy game currently on Kickstarter. Developed by Voyager Games, it features an original sound track by West Australian audio extraordinaire Daisy Ale Soundworks, with music that is out of this world (ha, sorry we couldn’t help ourselves)

Text reads "Outer Colony". A square image, made up of a collection of screenshots from the game Outer Colony. The game graphics are blocky, and colourful, featuring outdoor spaces and insides of buildings. Linked URL goes to attachment page with larger version of this image.Outer Colony is an open ended, real time strategy game with a focus on artificial intelligence and simulation-derived mechanics. Set in a sci-fi universe, players command expeditions of spacefaring colonists in an effort to establish settlements on remote worlds.

Much of the core gameplay revolves around providing for your expedition’s NPCs, managing its fledgling society, freeform building, and tactical combat. Whatever you do in OC affects the persistent game world, so everything from driving species to extinction to terraforming whole regions is possible.

This game of galactic settlement has already been Greenlit on Steam, so all you need to do to get behind it is share and support their Kickstarter. You can also surround yourself in the sounds of outer space right now, by listening to the Outer Colony OST on Bandcamp or in the video below.
