Aspyr Announces Space Colony
9:03 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Aspyr today announced Space Colony for the Macintosh. Developed by Firefly Studios, the same company that brought us the popular strategy game Stronghold, Space Colony allows players to combine all the intricacies of running a Space Colony with the most disfunctional crew ever assembled, while fighting off aliens and attempting to make a profit.

Here's a bit more info on the game:

Taking your team of starry-eyed misfits with you, you must search out and colonise some of the galaxy's most inhospitable planets. Starting from scratch your colony will need to quickly grow from a simple life-supporting pod into a sprawling meteoric metropolis, capable of keeping this most eclectic troop of tenants happy. As difficult as this can be, life in the colony isn't just about surviving, it's about big bucks and you're going to need to use every resource this planet has to offer to make them. Whether that's capturing the locals to create an alien zoo to attract tourists, mining the planet's core for materials, building a discotheque big enough to accommodate both country and rock or defending your settlement against alien attack, whatever it takes, responsibility for the colony's survival rests squarely with you.
The Macintosh port is being handled by Trihedron (founded by Nate Trost who originally ported Quake 2 to the Mac) and is currently in the Alpha stage of development. The game is expected to be released in May at a retail price of $29.99. More information on Space Colony can be found on the Aspyr website.
