game release date for PC:
Dyson Sphere Program is a strategic simulator set in space, where humanity has found a way to extract energy from the stars and now it is our job to construct a production chain and automate it to create an energy empire. The game was developed by five-person Chinese studio Youthcat Studio, whose kickstarter campaign was a huge success.
In 1959, the famous futurologist developed the concept of taking energy from stars by creating suitably advanced structures around a stellar orbit which would absorb the radiated energy from that celestial body. However, this would only be possible with a sufficiently technologically advanced civilisation. And this is exactly what happens in the distant future in the Dyson Sphere Program, in which we take on the role of an engineer of the COSMO space alliance, who is responsible for the project of constructing the Dyson Sphere.
Dyson Sphere Program is a procedurally generated strategy game thanks to which with each new experience we are faced with a different arrangement of the numerous stars, planets and the necessary resources, which also affects the other difficulties and challenges for the player. We will visit red giants, white dwarfs, ice and gas planets or neutron stars.
Above all, however, as in Factorio, the game is about successfully expanding in space, for which the extraction of numerous resources is crucial. We have to construct various buildings - from wind turbines generating energy, solar panels, to ships transporting resources between buildings. The more everything will be automated and the less we will have to look after each element of the production grid, the more time and opportunities for expansion and exploration of neighboring planets we will have. This will not happen, however, if we do not discover newer, more productive and more powerful technologies, which are necessary to create complex structures, such as mechas allowing us to jump between planets, turrets that protect us from enemy attacks, various factories and belts.
Dyson Sphere Program is a 3D game with realistic lighting effects and a free-moving camera with typically futuristic graphics and soundtrack emphasising the atmosphere of the game.
