Aspyr Ships Space Colony
10:19 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

In a press release earlier today, Aspyr Media announced that their space-themed living sim, Space Colony, is now shipping for the Mac. Borrowing popular elements from games like The Sims, Space Colony features open-ended gameplay where players must successfully build and manage their own space colony, complete with a variety of diverse crewmembers.

Building on the idea behind the wildly popular Sims’ series, Space Colony adds a new dimension to people simulation and building strategy games. Not only must you create a successful space colony by harvesting space resources and fending off manic aliens, but you also must baby-sit your team of outer space misfits. Players lead dysfunctional crews through a series of unique missions to build a functioning space colony. Colonies begin very simply, with bio-domes, food synthesizers, ATM machines that dispense workers’ paychecks, recreation facilities or maintenance tools. As players move through the 24 levels, missions grow increasingly difficult – defending your stations from any number of crazed aliens, opening up tourist destinations to make your colony profitable, and, most importantly, keeping your crew under control so that they don’t kill one another.
The game will be available in stores everywhere starting June 21. You can consult the links below for more information
