First Impressions: Aven ColonyFend off alien worms, sticky spores, and the biting cold in this city builder
We’ve had some hands-on time with Mothership’s upcoming spacetown builder, Aven Colony, and it leaves a great first impression. Releasing later this month, the game puts you in the shoes of an intrepid colony commander, leading the construction and development of progressively more complex and demanding outposts on the planet of Aven Prime.
Sitting somewhere between Sim City and Anno 2070, Aven Colony tasks you across a variety of colonies across the planet, each bringing its own challenges and intricacies. Just as you’re getting comfortable with conquering one problem — such as food scarcity in more desolate regions — another will present itself, keeping gameplay from stagnating and always giving you something further to work towards.
Look out for our review in a couple of weeks.
