Terraformers, a colony builder from Goblinz Publishing and developer Asteroid Lab, is officially coming to Switch, though the game does not have a Switch release window just yet. As a sort of extraterrestrial city-builder, Terraformers has a fairly predictable premise: the player’s job is to build, expand, and enrich their colony while working to terraform the Red Planet.

Even though the Switch version may be a long way off, we can still learn as much as possible about the game and get excited. To start off, why don’t you check out this trailer?

Additionally, here is a brief overview of the game:

Terraformers is a 3X game with roguelite elements in which you terraform Mars. Explore the planet’s wonders, exploit its resources and expand by settling new cities. Start the terraforming process: warming the planet, creating oceans and spreading life!

The world-building aspect of Terraformers should make for some interesting strategic situations. The overarching goal of making Mars habitable by installing multiple cities throughout its surface is an interesting one, to say the least.
