Stardeus sci-fi colony management game seeks funding on Kickstarter for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the efforts of solo developer, Kodo Linija. The crowdfunding campaign is currently live with a Demo.

The sci-fi colony management Stardeus has launched its Kickstarter campaign. Due to raise £12,000 ($16,578 USD) by September 15th, 2021. Already 59% funded at the time of writing. Offering up the first Stretch Goal at £14,000 Economic Trade. Then at £17,000 Factions and Diplomacy.
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. Just imagine if all these titles played out on a face hugger infested spaceship.

Stardeus Kickstarter trailer:

In Stardeus, you play as an immortal AI. One who aalso has an army of robots and drones at their disposal. Like all colony sim games, how you play Stardeus is entirely up to you. So yes you can grow a human colony on your ship, sure. Maybe start a robot uprising, why not. You can even choose to turn all your crew into human batteries. You know, so you can 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 the story will make every position on a ship unique to the player’s own personal experience. This story can result in eye watering comedic moments. So right from the interaction of crew members to face palming fires. Which also destroy half your space empire. Nothing in Stardeus is a scripted story, it’s your story and your rules.

Sound inventive, check out the Stardeus on both Steam and Itch.io. This also includes the games support for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC.

The Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for Stardeus is live now. A playable demo offers up to 2 hours of gameplay. There is instant alpha access available to backers. So this build will offer around 15 hours of gameplay. However, there is no time lock on the alpha access. So players can build until their hearts are content. The best part, it’s all available for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC from day one.
