Space Colony: Steam Edition
Top Critic Average
Space Colony: Steam Edition brings a classic game to the present with a great deal of polish applied. In a way it is surprising just how well the gameplay has held up after twelve years. Every character brings their own quirks and needs which have to be managed, though some characters are more prominent than others. The strangeness of seeing some things interact properly while others ignore it can take you out of the zone for a moment, but, as far as sim management games go, Space Colony is one that is worth checking out.
Space Colony is a quirky and charming package that packs focus that previous sim games lack. While it's clearly getting on in age, it's still a timeless gem in some regards, and easy to recommend to those who have not yet played it.
Space Colony is not without its charm or satisfaction, but you'll want all the idiotic colonists to die long before you reach the credits.
Space Colony: Steam Edition is clearly reaching out from a time way back when video game design used to be more forgiving. It's got a lot of flaws, but it also has a ton of personality, and it offers a pretty solid space colony management experience, albeit one a little on the light side.
A nice and inviting title that doesn't set the world alight, but is happy to simply entertain your spare time.
