: Space Colony Mini-Game: Alien Horde (Full Mini-Game) (10.2 MB)
In production at Firefly Studios, the creators behind the million selling Stronghold series, Space Colony promises a gaming experience that's out of this world. Through a series of unique and pioneering missions players will be given the opportunity to combine all the intricacies of running a Space Colony with the most disfunctional crew ever assembled, whilst fighting off aliens and attempting to make a profit.
Taking your team of starry-eyed misfits with you, you must search out and colonise some of the galaxy's most inhospitable planets. Starting from scratch your colony will need to quickly grow from a simple life-supporting pod into a sprawling meteoric metropolis, capable of keeping this most eclectic troop of tenants happy. As difficult as this can be, life in the colony isn't just about surviving, it's about big bucks and you're going to need to use every resource this planet has to offer to make them. Whether that's capturing the locals to create an alien zoo to attract tourists, mining the planet's core for materials, building a discotheque big enough to accommodate both country and rock or defending your settlement against alien attack, whatever it takes, responsibility for the colony's survival rests squarely with you.
Space Colony is due for release in September for more information on this and other Take 2 Interactive products please visit www.take2games.com
