The Pioneers: Surviving Desolation Hitting Steam Early Access Next Week
Developer Supercube announced that its survival management RPG The Pioneers: Surviving Desolation will be available on Steam Early Access on January 20, 2023. The game sees players take control of a three-member crew on Jupiter’s moon Io, attempting to survive while building up their base of operations. It is expected to spend around eighteen months in Early Access before fully releasing on PC.
The Pioneers: Surviving Desolation is set in the year 2084 as Io-1 become the first manned mission to Io. Players take their crew of three characters, chosen randomly from a pool of fifteen, and need to adapt to their strengths and weaknesses, with multiple winning conditions and endings available. Their base can be built up to establish different systems and modules as well as produce items and food, while the crew can go out on exploration missions to gather resources and data. Players will also need to contend with a variety of hazards including volcanoes, seismic activity, and storms.
Intriguing idea. So this doesn’t have combat, just exploration? Please do an Early Access p/review. Would love to hear more about it.
