From the development team, you can see what has changed below:

Help these cute robots build their dream settlement in The Colonists. Each bot has a job to fulfil, from harvesting crops and fishing at the lake, to transporting resources and discovering distant lands. Help them work together to achieve automated harmony.

  • Harvest: Gather Resources like wood, iron, stone, fish, and lots more

  • Refine: Turn resources into useful items, like bread, bricks, and planks

  • Build: Create homes, farms, and factories for your bots to live in and work on

  • Research: Advance technologies from steam trains to space rockets

  • Expand: Increase the complexity as you chase productivity zen

Play through 14 missions in Campaign mode, chill out in Sandbox Mode, or try Challenge Trophies if you’re an expert colony builder.

Here’s what we’ve changed for console

  • New controls: Re-designed controls help gameplay feel natural and fun on consoles

  • Controller optimized UI: A re-imagined user interface is more accessible for all players

  • New robot hats: cute little touches here and there including some adorable new robot hats
