In Astroneer, technology has developed to the point of rapid and inexpensive interstellar travel that enables exploration and exploitation of distant worlds. Conglomerate Exo Dynamics has made flights available to citizens of Earth — Astroneers — who are prepared to risk everything to seek their fortunes in this new frontier.

As an Astroneer, you’ll travel to harsh new randomly-generated worlds in search of precious materials and artefacts. But it won’t be easy.

You’ll face inhospitable conditions as you set up your base and dig for valuable resources. Harvesting these resources will require problem-solving. Physical mechanics will allow players to creatively build functional machines and pipelines with which to interact physically with the world.

You’ll also discover oddities, encounter questions and uncover mysteries. There may be more to your surroundings than you realize.

Astroneer, from indie developer System Era Softworks, is being built for PC/Windows with Unreal Engine 4. It’s set to debut on Steam Early Access in early 2016.

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.
