Voici un futur jeu au style très simpliste mais à la logique inversement très riche, a priori. A savoir celle de coloniser des planètes et d’y bâtir un empire de robots, mais surtout de programmer ceux-ci de manière ludique afin qu’ils accomplissent les innombrables besognes nécessaires à votre impériale expansion.
Tout le sel du jeu semblant de bien prévoir les tâches à accomplir pour développer à grande échelle de solides chaînes de production qui exploiteront au mieux les ressources à votre disposition. Les robots ne faisant sommes toutes que ce qu’on leur a dit de faire, si quelque chose ne tourne pas rond, il vous faudra alors revoir vos plans.
Curve Digital to Publish Denki Studios’ Playful Programming and Colonisation Sim ‘Autonauts’
London, UK – 25th July, 2019: Curve Digital is proud to announce that it’s working with independent studio Denki to bring their unique management sim Autonauts to PC this autumn.
Autonauts is the brainchild of the former DMA Design (Grand Theft Auto, Lemmings) creative director Gary Penn and offers players the chance to explore the universe and colonise procedurally-generated planets, utilising the help of fully programmable AI helpers.
Fresh from your spaceship you must harvest stick and stone and begin your colonisation efforts. Create rudimentary crafting items from blueprints and build dozens and dozens of different workerbots to make your new planet a fully functioning home. Teach AI helpers their duties by showing them what you’d like them to do step-by-step, be it cooking, farming, mining or construction, and then Autonaut’s variety of different helper bots will carry out their duties until they are complete or you can loop activities indefinitely.
In essence, players code A.I to do their bidding utilising a visual programming language which is powerful but easy to pick-up, with hundreds of different construction options to unlock.
In development since 2017 and downloaded over 300,000 times during Early Alpha, Autonauts screams personality from every poly and is designed to be a colourful and welcoming experience which invites players of all ages to explore, craft and automate.
Here’s the full feature breakdown:
– Playful Programming
Teach your workerbots requisite steps to complete tasks by asking them to repeat actions utilising a visual programming language. Designed to be easy to learn but with added complexity there are numerous possibilities.
– Automated Automation
Build an army of bots to automate just about everything in your colony, teach them what to do and expand both their brains and task possibilities with numerous upgrades and options.
– Various Ventures
From gathering to building, cooking, fishing, tailoring, farming, animal husbandry and more – the world of Autonauts is vast with limitless opportunities to automate and colonise.
– Charming Creativity
The world of Autonauts pops to life with a low-poly art-style married with a consistent and bright colour palette adding depth and scale, creating a relaxing and attractive play space.
Autonauts combines the very best of agriculture, simulation, crafting, building, production-line and resource management titles to create a brand new experience unlike any other. Create the automated world of your dreams! The future is now!
