Stardeus colony management game funded in just 6 days for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to all of the backers behind developer Neon Bedlam. Plus the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign is still going strong.

It took just 6 days for Stardeus to reach the stars and hit its £12,000 ($16,578 USD) Kickstarter funding goal. Now it’s taking off through its gameplay focussed stretch goals. Already passing the Economy and Trade goal. Which lets you trade goods with independent merchants through in-game currency.

Stardeus’s Kickstarter campaign launched on Monday, August 16th. As a result, instantly grabbed the attention of the colony management sim community. Content creators among the likes of Cringer, 2DKiri, and Splattercat. All of whom sing the game’s praises. Often referring to Stardeus as RimWorld in space.

Stardeus takes inspiration from titles like RimWorld, Factorio, Dwarf Fortress, Oxygen Not Included, and FTL. Due to deliver the depth of a colony management sim rarely seen among the stars. While you play as an immortal AI. One who also has an army of robots and drones at their disposal.

Like all colony sim games, how you play Stardeus is entirely up to you. Since you can grow a human colony on your ship. You can also start a robot uprising. Players can even choose to turn all your crew into human batteries. All due to satisfy your greed for electricity. The stars really are the limit when it comes to the open ended gameplay of Stardeus.

Embedded in every mode and base you build is the focus on AI storytelling. This off the cuff approach to story telling will make every situation on a ship unique. All due to the player’s own personal experience. This storytelling can result in eye watering comedic moments. Thanks to the interaction of crew members to face palming fires. Which in turn destroy half your space empire. Nothing in Stardeus is a scripted story, it’s your story and your rules.

A playable Stardeus demo is available on Steam and itch.io. Offering a time capped 2 hours playtime. Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign backers can get access to the alpha. This offers around 15 hours of progress gameplay. However, there is no time lock on the alpha access, so players can build until their hearts are content. Available for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC.
