Weird and Wry announced that their space management game that sees you building out space colonies on planets, upgrading their tech, advancing your space fleets, colonizing other planets, sending out diplomats, and becoming a galactic tyrant of the known solar system(s), has officially launched on Steam.
The Spatials: Galactology is currently available over on the Steam store for $12.99. During the first week of being on sale the game is discounted by 30% off the normal price, so you can get it for only $9.09.
The single-player space management simulator is about building out a base, managing resources, and dynamically looting and expanding your empire across a randomly generated galaxy.
You can see what the gameplay is like with the launch trailer below.
The tile-based strategy system is reminiscent of the old Sim City games. Once your base is fleshed out the way you want, you’ll need to establish defense measures against alien wildlife and potential invaders.
The game doesn’t rest on its laurels at just being a space colonization game. Once you research and build out your space ships you can then begin exploring the galaxy and diplomatic expanding your relations with other inhabitants, or simply tap into your inner tyrant and just take over their planets with your indomitable military forces.
You can then begin colonizing and expanding the civilizations of other planets, just like the Europeans during the age of sail.
Carlos Carrasco, the co-founder of Weird & Why, explained in the press release that the game has more content than when it was in Early Access, including new alien civilizations to discover and full Steam Workshop support…
“The Spatials: Galactology realizes the full potential of the original game. When we released The Spatials, we knew that it was a young star ready to go supernova. With some time and effort on our part, The Spatials has expanded into a whole new game; we now have three more alien civilizations, colonies that can be built on planets, Steam Workshop support for awesome new mods, and even a hotel system. “
