Farlanders Raises $24k On Kickstarter

Farlanders is a turn-based strategy game featured on Steam as part of Nextfest. The game is developed by an indie company called Crytivo. And like many other games, it raises money on Kickstarter for faster and more efficient development. So, thanks to the support of 545 sponsors, Farlanders managed to raise $ 24,000 on Kickstarter, which is 300% higher than the developers’ stated expectations.

All the money will be spent on improving the game and presenting the finished product in the 4th quarter of this year. You can build your colony on Mars and enjoy other features of the game on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux.

About the Game

Lead the charge in establishing a colony on Mars in this turn-based strategy game that will challenge you to not only survive, but thrive. Play as a colony architect with the aim of crafting the best settlement in the galaxy. Shape an ideal habitat by solving terraforming puzzles – a technique you will have to master in order to find water, topple mountains, and create fertile land – and manage your resources carefully. The survival of this colony depends on you. 


Create a viable habitat for your settlers by building water pumps, establishing farms on fertile ground, harnessing the power of the sun, and mining for precious minerals from the planet’s red soil. While you may be eager to quickly advance your colony, don’t forget to conserve your resources to create power cables and pipes that will connect the whole of your settlement.

Farlanders gameplay


Use specialized tools to terraform the planet, build residential areas for your colonizers, and construct resource-producing factories in an effort to become a self-sustaining society. Be wary of making your colonists unhappy as their satisfaction is of the utmost importance! Failure to keep the masses happy may result in devastating consequences.


Uncover new technologies from the discovery of ancient Martian artifacts. These artifacts may be found in newly created water sources, ice-laden ground, or deep beneath the mountains. Find them and expose their secrets by taking them to your Research Center where you can unlock new advancements and terraforming resources. 

In the meantime, you can download and play the free demo version of Farlanders available until Nextfest on Steam ends.
