Developers Denki Studios and publishers Curve Digital are pleased to announce Autonauts, the brainchild of the former DMA Design (Grand Theft Auto, Lemmings) creative director Gary Penn. 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.
Autonauts is set to arrive to Steam in Q3 2019.
