Space Haven is an upcoming simulation/strategy game where you take a crew of civilians on your colony ship and try to survive, nay even thrive as you travel about.

Here are some details from the Steam Store:

 

Space Haven is a spaceship colony sim throwing you in charge of leading a patched-together crew of civilians in search of a new home. It’s a base building game where players must build spaceships from the ground up tile by tile, create optimal gas conditions, manage the needs and moods of their crew, encounter other space-faring groups, and explore the universe in a self-built haven among the stars.

Space Haven allows for a lot of freedom regarding building. A functional spaceship can be built tile-by tile, giving you the opportunity to shape a spaceship of your own desire. It can be symmetric and streamlined, or an asymmetrical whimsical looking thing. It does not have to look like a conventional spaceship depicted in sci-fi literature, you are free to design your own, the choice is yours!

 
 

Space Haven’s core is built around the isometric tile-based gas system, which simulates various gases, temperature and crew comfort on a spaceship. The gas system combined with humans, plants, and facilities all having their own reactions to gas levels create deep and emergent gameplay. When designing and building a spaceship, you need to secure facilities, optimize crew survival and well-being, but also think about possible future accidents and chaos generated from crew combat or environmental hazards. Gas conditions can be monitored using different view modes.

The game simulates needs, moods, and relationships of crew members. Each crew member has their own history of life before the apocalypse, their past life occupation and hobbies will affect their skills and know-how. Crew members will develop relationships with each other, good or bad. They will want to spend more time with some while avoiding others. Witness depression, happiness, and drama surrounding different crew members as you journey onward towards a new home.

 
 

Explore a new randomly generated galaxy with your crew each time you start a new adventure. Throughout your venture, your crew will meet other groups of humans escaping earth, as well as established factions looking to survive or take control of the galaxy. Trade, negotiate or attack. Navigate the star map and seek out resources to keep your crew alive and expand your spaceship.
