About Autonauts

Autonauts is a singleplayer game where you automate production with robots. Task these robots by programming the robots to harvest resources, transport items, craft various amounts of items, and feed colonists which help you progress throughout the game.

The main goal of the game is to automate as much as possible and help the colonists.

"Travel the universe colonising uninhabited planets with the sole goal of setting worlds in motion through the power of automation. Fresh from your spaceship you must harvest stick and stone and begin your colonisation efforts. Create rudimentary crafting items from blueprints and slowly build a number of workerbots to aid in your efforts. Teach and shape their artificial intelligence with a visual programming language, then instruct them to begin the formation of your colony. Marvel as a planet you’ve shaped becomes home to a civilisation of workerbots, happy to do your bidding! Expand further with the creation of colonists; beings that require your assistance to survive. Push your workerbots further by introducing fishing, cooking, housing, and tailoring and help the colonists into a state of transcendence." - Steam store page
