An outhouse...in space?
Oxygen Not Included is a space simulation and survival game in which you build a new space colony inside a space rock. You play as the leader of this endeavor, striving to help the rock's new occupants (referred to as the duplicants) survive by mining, exploring, and managing resources.
The goal of Oxygen Not Included is to survive. You take your three duplicants, who start the game with nothing but the most basic supplies, and set them about to gathering resources, building rooms, and collecting other tools. The game presents you with a sideways view, allowing you to fully grasp all of the various resources you have harvested and pathways you have made.
"Once you begin, your job is to clear away pieces of the space rock, mine for resources, and establish rooms that have vitally necessary support services...like outhouses." As you would imagine, the more you progress, the more rooms and advanced features you unlock. This occurs as your space colony demands more advanced services, such as hospitals and power generation.
There's no other way of putting this: The graphics are absolutely adorable. They are bright, cute, and cartoon-y. Movements and sprites have a friendly character to them, and this can sometimes sharply contrast with the drab surroundings of your space rock. Sharp design elements enhance the game's overall appearance and help you understand everything going on at your base simultaneously.
The game's layout allows you a deep level of customization. You can pick what you want to focus down on, and this is good because a LOT is happening on the screen at all times. Indeed, the sheer number of animations, data, rooms, and movements that are constantly thrown your way can be overwhelming.
The game is hard, but never unfairly so. It forces you to fully understand what you are doing and how you are supposed to do it before you progress onward.
However, the game can get a little difficult to understand from the onset. Perhaps one of the game's more significant drawbacks is the lack of tutorial or much explanation as you play. This means that you're guessing...a lot...and this can get very frustrating, particularly given just how many menus you have to master in order to play this game appropriately. There are quite a few skills to understand, including digging, building, mining, research, resource management, and more. Without adequate help, this can get tough.
Developed by Klei Entertainment, Oxygen Not Included is available on computer platforms only. You can download it on Steam for $14.99. The game spent two years in Early Access before its formal release in July 2019.
Thankfully for you, you can wring dozens of hours of fun out of this game. There are no set levels or set ways to play. All levels are procedurally generated, so every time you play, you're playing something new. Repeated play can introduce you to new strategies and tactics, allowing you to refine the way you play and enjoy yourself at a new level.
Oxygen Not Included is a fantastic space survival game that will test your ability to build colonies and manage resources.
