Autonauts has become one of Curve Digital's best-selling games just seven days after it originally launched. This programming-focused city builder has an adorable art style that seems to have resonated with fans, and now the developer has laid out plans to make it an even bigger success.
If you haven't yet played Autonauts, you're missing out on an interesting little game. Rather than simply control colonists, you're put in charge of robots that will help build a colony for your citizens. Teach them tasks through a visual programming language and you can watch your colony grow right before your eyes!
It seems that players were rather taken with the game — a news post on the game's Steam Community page has announced that it's become Curve Digital's fourth best-selling franchise — and it only took a week.
Autonauts Plans 'Aggressive' Post-Launch Strategy
A press release from the developers lays out the future plans for this adorable game.
Curve Digital and Denki are also happy to announce an aggressive post-release strategy for Autonauts which will see the game receive meaningful new features and content for at least the next six months and importantly, all of this new content will be added to the game for no extra cost.
The developers declined to mention any specifics for new content, but we can get a general idea from things they mentioned that would be included in free future updates. These new items include:
- a new Age
More details about new content will be coming "real, real soon" according to the same press release. In the meantime, you can get Autonauts on Steam or on the Humble Store at the price of $19.99 or your regional equivalent. Check out the launch trailer below to see what it's all about!
