The unique AI-coding management sim, Autonauts has officially confirmed its October 17th release for PC via Steam. Players will set up step-by-step instructions for their workbots, whether its to cook, farm, mine, or construct buildings.
As long as the worker bots have enough memory to store the routine they’ll carry out their role diligently until it is complete or they run out of power – only requiring a quick wind up by the player or other robots to get back online. Combining the best features of agriculture, simulation, crafting, and production-line games, it aims to be accommodating to players regardless of age or skill level.
- Playful Programming
Teach your workerbots requisite steps to complete tasks by asking them to repeat actions utilizing 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.
- Charming Creativity
The world of Autonauts pops to life with a low-poly art-style married with a consistent and bright color palette adding depth and scale which creates a relaxing and attractive play space.
- Play Your Way
In Autonauts you can choose to play through the Campaign Mode which introduces all elements of the game and guides players to the ‘endgame’ via specific goals, Free Mode where all structures are unlocked straight away and Creative Mode where players have unlimited resources to create the settlement of their dreams.
- Share Your World and Automations
Each world created in Autonauts has its own seed which can be shared with other players. Additionally, all robot routines can also be outputted into a jpeg at a click of a button, so you can share freely with your peers. Don’t just admire your automations, share them with the world!
