Mirage Game Studios – the developer behind the well-received factory simulation Little Big Workshop – has shared a first look at its adorable galactic property mogul game Space for Sale, which is set to launch on PC on a currently undisclosed date.
Space for Sale puts players in the role of a lovable astronaut who has just bought an entire galaxy on the cheap, with the goal of making it a dream destination for strangers looking for a home across the globe. cosmos. To achieve this goal, players must travel the procedural planets of the galaxy in search of the perfect place to meet the sometimes eccentric needs of their customers.
Although the basic concept of Space for Sale seems very management sim, Mirage claims that the game’s sandbox-style gameplay is more of a “hands-on experience” than it suggests, with players having to explore each planet in person so they are looking for the ideal location. to drop a plot, construct buildings, collect resources, scan objects, etc.
In doing so, they will need to keep their clients’ requests in mind, whether they are requests for a nice view, a house of a certain size, a swimming pool or even something special. ‘a bit more exotic, like a herd of herbivores for carnivorous customers to feast on.
Each procedural planet has its own distinct biome (ranging from lava worlds to more lush environments), as well as biome-appropriate flora and fauna, each bringing its own unique challenges. Plus, there’s the not-insignificant issue of the encroaching space rot, serving as something of an in-game antagonist as players seek to overcome its malignant creep.
Space for Sale will be playable solo or in co-op with two players when it eventually launches on PC.
