Clever mechanics and challenging puzzles combined with a unique monochrome look and a spectacular soundtrack, all help lead to a wonderful adventure.”
Describes Autonauts, Microsoft writes “The world is yours for the building! Find uninhabited planets and modify them. Starting with the absolute basics of harvesting sticks and stones, you’ll start your base.” The company goes on to say, “Eventually, you can move on to building worker robots, which in turn can help you build more once you hone their artificial intelligence. Teach them to fish, harvest, cook, adapt, and more. Before you know it, you can create a populace that will need your help to survive. This is a beautifully designed sim game that is open and provides lots of fun challenges for you to master. Power the world through automation.”
