The Colonists is an economic strategy developed with PCs enriched with light elements of war. Players control the robots to prepare the planet for the arrival of human colonists. To this end, they gather resources, develop technology and infrastructure, and trade or fight with other factions.
The Colonists is a Windows-based strategy for alien colonization. The game was developed by Codebyfire, and was released by the company Mode 7 Games, which itself is a developer and has such titles as Frozen Synapse or Frozen Cortex.
In the game we direct a team of robots that are sent to a foreign planet with the mission of preparing her for the arrival of human colonists. During the fun we have to carry mechanical guards for various periods of development, from the age of stone to the era of cosmic conquests.
Released on Windows PC platform The Colonists is a real-time strategy that combines the aspects of war and economics, but is much more focused on the second of these spheres. During the fun we deal with Infrastructure construction: road meshes, water transport, rail and air transport. It is necessary to collect raw materials, set up farms and harvest crops, and establish diplomatic and trade relations with foreign factions. There were also wars, but economic development was a priority. In addition, the game provides us with tools to shape the terrain so that it better suits our needs.
The Colonists feature a feature-based and feature-free campaign where we develop a colony without predetermined goals or time limits. Multiplayer games are also available that allow you to play cooperatively or compete with other players.
