Habitat: A Thousand Generations in Orbit will have Steam Workshop support

by: Randy -

This Friday kicks off PAX Prime 2014 (Aug. 29–Sep. 1) in Seattle, Washington. There, developer 4gency is showing off a a demo of space survival sim Habitat: A Thousand Generations in Orbit. That's the game that looks kinda like Katamari Damacy in Earth's upper orbit, with ferris wheels, taco trucks and Statue of Liberty heads cobbled together to form space stations. It looks pretty much amazing.

But if Habitat doesn't have enough wacky things for you to tack together, 4gency announced the game will have Steam Workshop support, meaning intrepid game-designing folks can mod in their own stuff. That means there'll be the inevitable space phallus or two, but I have faith in certain pockets of humanity, and modders still have their moments of brilliance.

Habitat's real-time, physics-driven orbital strategery is on Steam's Early Access right now for $14.99.

Strategic Space Survival Game Showing Off New Steam Workshop Support System

(Austin, TX) August 25, 2014 — Indie publisher Versus Evil, in partnership with Seattle based indie developer 4gency, today announced that Habitat: A Thousand Generations in Orbit, will be demoing new content and showing off an early version of how the game will support Steam's Workshop support system exclusively at this years PAX Prime located in Seattle, WA from August 29th – September 1st. Integrating Steam's Workshop will allow players to create their own pieces of junk for use in-game which will complement the existing content roll out planned by the development team.

"Habitat just keeps getting better and better and we're thrilled to be showing off the game in our own backyard," said Charles Cox, founder of 4gency. "Since early access began players have been asking for the ability to add their own customizable space junk. We look forward to showing PAX attendees some of the new Steam Workshop content and demonstrating what makes Habitat truly one of a kind."

In Habitat gamers have to build and manage the future homes of humanity from orbital debris they find in space junkyards surrounding Earth??s orbit. Leading their team of engineers, they will have to build and fly space stations in a zero gravity setting, mastering physics driven flight simulation to explore space. In order to thrive and grow they have to manage their population and their population??s environment. In the event of a threat they will have to turn their space stations into deadly weapons using pieces of debris picked up such as rockets, lasers and particle accelerators to fight and ultimately survive against attacks from the enemy. This is a space survival game where crisis is guaranteed and the only chance for survival is to be creative and decisive in the face of disaster.
