Take control of a team of robots tasked with settling a newly-discovered planet, preparing the ground for an influx of inhabitants from their homeworld.
The robots are capable or harvesting several natural resources, setting up farms to create a steady line of food production, sculpting terrain to make better optimized networks of road and railways.
Apart from that you can set up trade exchange goods with other allies on the planet or just conquer all the civilization. every aspect of the game can be improved according to the devs players can “Explore, research, manage, tweak and refine to your heart’s content!”
The game comes with a single player campaign for solo settlers, co-op multiplayer for teams, competitive multiplayer for versus mode and a free play mode.
The game looks like a cutesy version of both The Settlers and Anno series from which it takes heavy inspiration the bold color and graphics seem pretty good in the trailer. if the devs of the game manage to deliver good gameplay with a variety of upgrades in advancement from one age to another then it may perform well in the market.
