History

Early 2015 the Mobile Monsters got in touch with Slash Games to discuss the idea of developing a free2play game together. With Kingdoms & Monsters the Mobile Monsters already had a successful mobile game running which focused on a strong singleplayer experience.

From March to September 2015 the two companies did some research and prototyping to find a good concept. The space setting was clear quite early, but the first idea was more combat-based. In the end they focused on a build-up game design and put the player into the shoes of a space station builder that has to make sure the new citizens of the station stay happy.

The development took around 6 months and the game was released in March 2016 in the Google Play Store.
