Colony Ship: A Post-Earth RPG is the latest release from the creators of the hit PC game, Age of Decadence.
Once again the team at Iron Tower Studio are sticking to what they know, with Colony Ship utilising turn-based role-playing-game mechanics. Only this time the team is swapping a post-apocalyptic fantasy world for a massive spacecraft - known as Proxima Centauri - which is on a centuries-long voyage to colonize a distant planet.
The game is launching into early access on April 6 and whilst it is "feature-complete", it's going to be lacking content. The full version of the game will have 4 chapters, but the Early Access launch will contain only the first chapter, roughly 25 of the finished game.
This first self-contained chapter will consist of just 3 locations: a container town sitting in one of the cargo holds, the armoury, and hydroponics.
If you're wondering what is coming next, read on, we'll talk you through the games current content roadmap.
