'Minicology' Release Date Set For Later This Month - Trailer

by Rainier on April 9, 2024 @ 1:08 p.m. PDT

Minicology is a sandbox RPG adventure where players travel through a procedurally-generated universe of tiny planets!

Minicology allows players to create and manage their own miniature ecosystems, nurturing diverse species and adapting to environmental changes. Players build bases, defend against invasions, terraform worlds, and engineer solutions to challenges like farming and mining.

Smelt precious alloys from fallen meteorite, complete terraforming tasks to unlock chests, and gather genetic material to clone livestock. As you venture further into deep space, more materials and crafting stations will become available. Set up auto-harvesters and harness the simulated water cycle to make sure you’re always stocked with food, wood, and materials for your next adventure!

Minicology’s event system will keep you on your toes - each planet type has unique simulated weather and event rotations. Since events shift with the seasons, a planet might not be the same the next time you visit! Jungle planets feature dangerous acid rains, while deserts have blinding sandstorms that leave you fumbling to see - but certain rare materials will only be available during these dangerous events. Make sure you’re prepared!

As you roam, be careful that you don’t disturb the dangerous predators of the mini-verse. Well, actually, you’ll probably want to - they’ve got some of the best loot in the galaxy! Combat isn’t restricted to weapons - players can create weather, automate turrets, and harness the chemistry of gasses like methane, hydrogen, or radon to inflict damage on bosses or morph the world around you!

Key Features:

  • Sandbox-style building & terraforming mechanics. Make your planet your way!
  • Survive by hunting, farming, or a mix of the two - just don't hunt a species into extinction!
  • Automate your base: pipe items from chests into furnaces, synthesize new materials, and irrigate your farms.
  • Dozens of unique events and objectives, ranging from meteor showers to boss battles.
  • Massive procedural universe to explore, with an objective system that keeps gameplay fresh.
  • 8 Challenging boss battles.
  • Craft accessories, armor, and weapons to flesh out your build.
  • Don't lose track of time! Immersive day/night cycle, with unique events tied to each!
  • Your actions have consequences: animals can be driven to extinction, and players can trigger hazardous weather conditions.
  • And yes, the planets are actually round.

Minicology is coming to PC (Steam) on April 25, 2024 at $14.99/€14.79/£12.79.
