Autonauts physical

Autonauts first made it to Switch over the summer only as an eShop download, but a physical version is now on the way. It has started to pop up on retailer websites complete with the official boxart – we have a look at the design above.

Autonauts features a mix of agriculture, simulation, crafting, building, production-line, and resource management gameplay. Read more about the title below.

Fresh from your spaceship you must harvest stick and stone and begin your settlement building 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 settlement. 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 Folk; beings that require your assistance to survive. Push your workerbots further by introducing fishing, cooking, housing, and tailoring and help the Folk into a state of transcendence.

Key Features

  • Playful Programming: Teach your workerbots requisite steps to complete tasks by asking them to repeat actions utilising a visual programming language. Designed to be easy to learn but with added complexity there are numerous possibilities.
  • Automated Automation: Build an army of bots to automate just about everything in your settlement, teach them what to do and expand both their brains and task possibilities with numerous upgrades and options.
  • Various Ventures: From gathering to building, cooking, fishing, tailoring, farming, animal husbandry and more – the world of Autonauts is vast with limitless opportunities to automate and evolve their world.
  • Charming Creativity: The world of Autonauts pops to life with a low-poly art-style married with a consistent and bright colour palette adding depth and scale, creating a relaxing and attractive play space.
