--

This Thursday 17th January, Meeple Station shall be launching on to Steam for PC, Mac and Linux as an Early Access title. It is a moddable space station building sim inspired by Rimworld, with a healthy dose of chaos thrown in. This is the second game from developer Vox Games (the team behind Regions of Ruin, a very positively reviewed indie on Steam), and first game for new publisher Modularity (from the creators of ModDB and IndieDB - news embargoed about Modularity until 17th of January, more details to follow).

The team behind Meeple Station quietly opened up beta sales on itch.io a few weeks ago to an overwhelmingly positive response, continue to be at the top of the sellers charts, and are steadily climbing Steam's upcoming charts as the 17th of January quickly approaches. Seems there is a strong appetite for battling space pirates and rogue meeple. The team's early access trailer provides a good overview of gameplay, for players ready to take the reins of their own space station.

 

If you would like to receive a review code for the game for you and a friend, hit the button above or respond to this email to get in touch. Feedback is strong, buzz is building - it'd be great to count on your coverage on the 17th of January once everything goes live.
