Available on:PCOct 24, 2018

Developers: Codebyfire, Mode 7 Games

Genre: Strategy

The Colonists is a settlement building game inspired by classic titles like The Settlers and the Anno series. You take control of a team of self-replicating robots who have escaped from Earth and are searching the galaxy for a new home where they can fulfil their dream: to be human. You'll advance through three different Ages as you build infrastructure for your colony by constructing road, boat and train transport systems. Harvest natural resources, set up farming and food production, create expeditions to discover new lands and research new technologies. With two separate mission tracks, The Colonists lets either you create sprawling settlements in peace or race to compete against AI colonies in military winner-takes-all scenarios. Explore, research, manage, tweak and refine to your heart's content!

If you play society building games and find yourself perfecting your city, you will likely enjoy The Colonist and appreciate ability to track every element of productivity. However, the game could have a greater potential on a mobile device, and as a player, I would have been more invested if there were a bit more customization options or stakes to my success.

Robotic colonists are so cute and as funny as the first games in The Settlers series.

Decide what you value 5-10 hours of fun at, and then spend that.

The Colonists is cute and with a stronger campaign, it could have been so much better. Sadly repetitive tasks and some finicky management means that some levels feel more like a chore than a challenge as your robots fumble over themselves.
