Replacing DARQ on Epic Games Store this week is city builder Aven Colony developed by Mothership Entertainment.
Aven Colony is a city-building colony simulator where players will have to build a new home for humanity on Aven Prime, an alien planet of "deserts, tundras, and wetlands light years from earth". Like many city-building games, players will begin with small colonies that will eventually grow into cities.
As the cities will grow on an alien planet, players will face challenges like "low-oxygen atmosphere, extreme electrical storms, shard storms, dust devils, deadly toxic gas eruptions from geothermal vents, and days so long they have their own seasons". They will also encounter lifeforms that will cause difficulties too, including giant sandworms, deadly plague spores, and a vicious fungal infection known as “The Creep".
