I love games set in space and the idea behind Base One is one that got me interested in it right away. This is a strategy/sim style of game where you get to build space stations and then make sure they are running as smoothly as can be. As you would expect with a game like this, the smallest decision can have a big impact on things going forward. If you like these styles of game, then this is one that you must take a closer look at.
Space Is Our New Home
The plot of Base One is pretty cool and one that sounds like it has been taken from a sci-fi book or movie. The moon has been destroyed by a wormhole and this has caused a ton of problems on Earth. Natural disasters are making it harder and harder to live here and a solution was needed.
The solution it is decided is to head into the wormhole to try and find a new home for humanity. Before we can do this, we need to live in these massive space stations which is easier said than done! I love the presentation of the game as it has a very cool sci-fi look. I love how they managed to capture the feel of things going wrong could be just one step away.
Building Your Base!
The whole point of the game is to build these epic space stations. Base One gives you a lot of tools for building really cool space stations. You will of course need resources to do this and you will gather them as you play. However, at the start, it does a good job of holding the player's hand and giving them enough resources to get a hold of what the game wants from them. I could actually spend hours and hours making awesome space stations!
The Needs Of The People
Building the space stations in Base One is only the first part of finding a new home for mankind. You also need to populate them. You can select what kind of people you want to live and work on the stations. They each have their own skills and quirks so you really have to think about who will be an asset to the space station. The thing is, you are responsible for keeping these people alive and you have some things that are very important. The basics that they need to survive are heat, oxygen, and water. You also need to make sure the place is furnished and all of their needs are being met too!
They Want What Is Yours!
There is also some combat in Base One. There are meteorites that you have to watch for, but space pirates and aliens are also a threat to your space stations! You need to set up and prepare defenses that will blast these trouble makers out of the sky so that they cannot come and damage and pillage your space stations.
Base One is an awesome base-building game. It is the kind of thing that can take over your life if you let it. What I think they did a great job of here was making sure that the game was deep and that your decisions matter. However, at the same time, it is not so hard that it becomes frustrating and unenjoyable which some of these games do end up becoming. Be sure to keep an eye on this one, as of writing it is in early access and I personally think it is coming along nicely.
- I love the story of the game
- Building the bases is a lot of fun and very addictive
- It is very exciting and nerve-wracking when your bases come under attack
- Some of the stories that the people tell are interesting
- It may start off a tad slow for some
- One wrong move can have very bad consequences!
