[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource Games Press.]

After 6 years of hard work, 2 indie devs (US & UK) are happy to announce a new title: Captain of Industry – realistic factory & colony simulation game for PC.


The game offers a fresh take on realism. The player starts on an island and gets to construct excavators to have them mine from a fully dynamic terrain. Trucks can also dump products on the terrain as well. So the whole island can be terraformed! 


Other features include an autonomous vehicles system, conveyors and pipes, over 100 products to manufacture, over 100 research nodes to unlock, farming, naval battles, space program! And the player also has to care about their colony of people and feed them and use their happiness to achieve bigger goals! This provides a fresh fusion between industry & colony management.


Check out our trailer that shows progression throughout the game and many of the described features.


Just one week after the pre-alpha press build release, players & content creators are excited to discover other features of the game!


This game is now only available exclusively for press. We are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the development and bring the game to more players as soon as possible. Please help us so we can grow our game even more!


Closed alpha is planned for September 2021, closed beta will follow in December 2021 and public early access starts in March 2022.


The Kickstarter page has more information about the game, including many images and animated gifs.


We’d be delighted if you’d consider covering Captain of Industry and help a small indie studio, but even if not, we appreciate your time reading this! If you’d like to try a pre-alpha press-release build of the game, please let us know anytime!
