Moscow, Russian Fed. — June 24, 2013 — Iron Bit company is announcing admission of space settlers for exploration and colonization of distant planets. Fit individuals with stable mentality, good tolerance of interstellar travels and ability to work in team are welcome. Extraterrestrial colonization is known to be a safe and fun thing to do. The first settlers are sure to enjoy the vast openness, amiable exotic landscapes, friendly flora and fauna. Do not be confused by the amount of ammunition all expeditions are equipped with – this is done solely to ensure everyone’s comfort and peace of mind. Natural resources abundant in the depths of uncharted planets and vitally important for the people of Earth are waiting there to be taken.

Colonies Online is a game world consisting of a great number of planets each with an area of thousands square kilometers. Game objective is to gain a foothold in the developed areas, either making headway single-handedly or creating enclaves with other players. Players united in an enclave can build colonies. A colony is a place where research is conducted, and equipment and resources are stored. Therefore, it is likely to become subject to intense interest of competitors. Overtaking a colony is a great opportunity to weaken the enemy as well as loot trophies.

The game’s philosophy is expressed in this statement: “Everything in the game is created by players themselves”. All in-game items are made by players through a crafting system. In Colonies Online characters do not advance in level but obtain professions as sets of certain skills. The tree of professions and skills is also determined by the player. The game becomes spicier in open PvP mode, with opportunity to arrange battles of up to a hundred players at a time.

Key features:

  • one universe composed of a great number of planets;
  • game field of a planet is measured in thousands square kilometres;
  • character shooter control top-side view;
  • sophisticated crafting system;
  • free construction on planet surface;
  • flexible system of character skill development;
  • open PvP mode;
  • opportunity to participate in large-scale battles.

About Iron Bit:
Iron Bit is a small independent team of game developers founded in 2013. At the moment the team is focused on realization of their first project – Colonies Online.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
