One Lonely Outpost Kickstarter Trailer
What is One Lonely Outpost?
One Lonely Outpost is a space farming sim set on a barren alien planet. Grow your farm and with it a community and a new life.
The most important thing for building a colony is farming! There are two paths you can take; Synthetic and Naturalistic. If you choose to go back to your roots and go down the Naturalistic path, your pocketbook will be overflowing with Spacebucks. However, you'll need to spend more time tending and taking care of normal animals as they aren't meant to survive in space. Taking the Synthetic path will let you alter your crops with strains of jellyfish, frogs, microbes, and more! You better be careful though, crops that have been altered will sell for less and will have some...interesting physical features.
Did you forget you're in space? The planet which you will name is full of mystery. Despite having no living matter whatsoever, it has oxygen and a water cycle. Go out and explore, and you’ll find ancient alien ruins with robots that seek to test you. If you fail, they don’t harm you...much. Instead they dump you out at the entrance and wait for you to try again. Pass their tests and you may just discover how this unique world came to be, and what that means for its future.
Build a Community
Where there is food, people will come! But life on an outpost is hard, and you’ll need them as much as they need you. Mechanics, environmental engineers, and more. Over 20 characters are included in the game, including a couple of characters unique to whether you take the organic or synthetic route with your farm. Watch the community grow from just a handful to a tiny town full of interesting folk, with individuals from a broad range of backgrounds. Help them out and you may just find some friends or a someone special to spend your life on the colony with!
Immerse yourself in the Music & Setting
Your colony will truly feel like being on another world. Fully realized and detailed pixel art will create an environment that is a character unto itself. Enjoy music by Bashi Boizu, composer for Magicite, Roguelands, and Littlewood, among others. An innovative, modern take on 8-bittish music drives the narrative - from starting out alone, to becoming part of a community.
