Oxy­gen Not In­cluded

De­vel­oper/pub­lisher Klei En­ter­tain­ment For­mat PC Re­lease 2017

EDGE - - DISPATCHES PERSPECTIVE -

Klei is a stu­dio on an ex­tra­or­di­nary run: Mark Of The Ninja, Don’t Starve and In­vis­i­ble, Inc are three very dif­fer­ent games, but equally pol­ished, char­ac­ter­ful and suc­cess­ful in their aims. Oxy­gen Not In­cluded sees this ver­sa­tile team shift gen­res again, this time to a colony sim­u­la­tion game. You’re tasked with build­ing and main­tain­ing a sub­ter­ranean as­ter­oid base, en­sur­ing your army of ap­par­ent hu­manoid clones are kept busy. You’ll be able to set pri­or­i­ties, invit­ing them to fo­cus on build­ing, har­vest­ing, re­search­ing or cook­ing, while reg­u­lar pop­ups alert you to im­mi­nent prob­lems or re­cent dis­as­ters: frozen mer­cury, dead crops, power out­ages, bed short­ages and stressed work­ers. It looks like a win­ningly fran­tic plate-spin­ning act, as you at­tempt to man­age an ever-widen­ing va­ri­ety of crises while keep­ing your work­force happy.
