#Gaming AVEN COLONY beta is available now!!

For all you PC gamers out there that love city building/lanet building games here's one you might want to check into. It's still in beta but, if you buy it - you buy the full game :) 

If you would like too, please take a look here for trailers and gameplays of the game.

I got the following info off of the AvenColony site about them and the game :) 


The epic story of humanity's first colonization and settlement of a new world outside the solar system


After 2.5 years in stealth mode, we’re thrilled to finally announce Mothership Entertainment’s flagship game.
For the last 2.5 years, we’ve been in stealth mode, building Aven Colony in Unreal Engine 4.
Aven Colony is a colony-building and management sim. It tells the story of humanity’s very first settlement of an extrasolar world — a moon around a gas giant a few light-years from Earth known as Aven Prime.
Land on an exotic alien world, settle its various biomes, maintain a hermetically-sealed colony, deal with the wild and unpredictable alien weather, build your colony’s infrastructure and ensure a steady supply of food and water and electricity, cleanse your colony of alien “creep” infections, and much more.
On top of this, you’ll face the greatest challenge of all — keeping your people happy.
Aven Colony is the first game to explore themes of planetary colonization, survival, and colony management at a full city-builder scale:
· A rich simulation of an extraterrestrial colony, including oxygen propagation, habitation, employment, electricity and power generation, mining, crime, food cultivation, limited inventory, water, and much more.
· Dozens of different buildings, from simple inflatable-tent “modules” to massive skyscrapers created from metallic nano-cubes (“nanites”). Most of these buildings support 2-3 upgrade tiers.
· A fully functional day/night cycle, which is tied to a “sol” on Aven Prime (a “sol” is equivalent to one earth week, and “night” is essentially a brief winter season). During the “winter” season, Aven Prime freezes over, and farms will not grow food and solar panels will generate far less electricity.
· Use 3 different types of advanced flying drones (construction drones, police drones, and scrubber drones) to build, upgrade, and manage your colony.
· An alien infection called “the creep,” which can glom onto buildings and cover them in alien tentacles. Build special “Scrubber Drones” to clear the creep from infected buildings and stop it from taking over the entire colony.
· Additional environmental challenges including lightning storms, dust devils, deadly toxic gas emissions from geothermal vents, and shard storms.
· Research, grow, and process various alien plant species and foodstuffs and decide on the best locations to place farms and greenhouses for roughly a dozen different crops, derived from both Earth-based and native plant species.
· 12 distinct “overlay” modes give more information about the colony: Crops, Citizens, Happiness, Crime, Air, Electricity, Employment, Resources, Structures, Commute, Drones, and Water.
· Manufacture dozens of types of foods, beverages, and “enhancement substances” that will alter your citizens’ morale and productivity.
· A rich morale system based on 13 different morale factors, and regular referendum elections that will give your citizens the opportunity to kick you out of office if morale gets too low.
· Over a dozen social policies.
· Discover, analyze, and use ancient alien artifacts as you learn more about the civilization that once inhabited the world of Aven Prime.
· A robust mission objective system that gently guides the player to build a viable colony at the start of the game, then expands to give broader objectives toward the endgame and keep the player moving. This system includes construction objectives, trade objectives, population / morale objectives, total colony size objectives, and much more. Up to three objectives are available to the player at a time.
· Fully player-controllable game speed; pause the game at any time or play at 1x, 2x, 4x, or 8x game speed.
· Rise in rank from Colony Governor to Expedition President (5 ranks total).
· A unique narrative that reveals the secrets of the civilization that once lived on Aven Prime.

We create games with depth – games that give players a deep, rich, and interesting landscape of decisions.
Our games challenge your mind, not your reflexes.
We value quality over quantity, and we focus on small, focused, tightly-polished games.
We build gameplay that scales nonlinearly with rich game mechanics, not just linearly with more content.
We are always accountable to our customers. We don’t make “art” and we insist in creativity and technology for the sake of the game experience, not for their own sake.
We have no interest in imitating anybody else. We are committed to creating fresh gameplay experiences unlike anything you’ve seen before.
