Bored of planet Earth? Do you have a God complex but can't
be bothered to start a cult? Then this could be the game for
you. Leaving Earth far behind you can start up a new space
colony. Take control of the resources, the chores, the living
conditions, and ultimately, the fate of all the colonists
and visitors to your space base. Turn the oxygen flow up a
tad and, despite the terrors of living in space, your colonists
will be oblivious to the dangers of the alien-infested planets

will work tirelessly for you, become friends and even fall

once you get bored of playing by the rules, or are feeling
in a particularly vindictive mood, you can torment your colonists
too! See how many you can kill, or start a fight. Turn off
