About Aven Colony :
The game is a detailed city simulator that does not take place on Earth. The surprise is that your city planning takes place on Aven Prime, a hostile alien world. There are numerous landscapes to choose from, as well as perils such as enormous worms and other terrible entities.
Aven Prime, the planet you must inhabit, has deserts, tundras, and rainforests light-years away from Earth.
Aven Colony puts you in command of humanity’s first extrasolar settlement, as you establish and expand small colonies into massive, expansive cities while dealing with the hardships of settling on a new world.
The title is all about expansion and resource management. In contrast to games like Cities: Skylines, you must continually consider exterior dangers and defense requirements.
However, unlike modern builders, you do not earn space bucks or any other currency. You extract metal from the earth, process it, and spend the resultant ‘nanites’ on new construction and upgrades.
You will be able to focus on fulfilling goals such as farming because you will not have to manage a budget or taxes. You can handle your colony’s Crops, Citizens, Happiness, Crime, Air, Electricity, Employment, Resources, commutes, Structures, Drones, and Water using the 12 different overlay modes.
To earn the respect of your colonists and progress through the ranks from Colony Governor to Expedition President, you’ll have to put in a lot of effort.
This is kind of like a mini-game within the game. This mechanic should be familiar if you’ve ever played a game like Tropico 5.
