Independent developers continue to find homes for their titles on the PS4 and Xbox One, including studios whose work began on Kickstarter. A new game called Habitat: A Thousand Generations in Orbit, for instance, will be making its way to PS4 and Xbox One in 2015. It was originally funded May 1, 2014 on the crowd-funding site.
Habitat: A Thousand Generations in Orbit is billed as the only strategic space-survival game that uses orbital debris to build the future homes of humanity. If you’ve ever fantasized about dwelling in space junk, here’s your chance.
To be fair, the game’s more than just LittleBigPlanet with space trash. Gamers have to build and manage the future homes of humanity from orbital debris they find in space junkyards surrounding Earth’s orbit. Leading their team of engineers, they will have to build and fly space stations in a zero gravity setting, mastering physics driven flight simulation to explore space.
In order to thrive and grow, players must manage their population and their population’s environment. In the event of a threat, they’ll have to turn their space stations into deadly weapons using pieces of debris such as rockets, lasers and particle accelerators.
Players’ hope for survival relies on their creativity and resourcefulness fighting against and ultimately surviving enemy attacks.
If you’re interested in more information, there’s an Early Access build for PC and Mac now available through Steam, Amazon, Humble Store, GameFly, Gamer’s Gate, GreenMan Gaming and Nuuvem. The build isn’t cheap — $14.99, £10.99 and €14.99 — but it’s a good way to get a real feel for what it offers.
There aren’t currently plans to make a beta or demo for PS4 or Xbox One.
