Survive pirates and meteors
Remember kids, failure is fun. When something goes wrong, it goes REALLY wrong in Meeple Station. Your officer could decide that the airlock isn’t necessary and deconstruct it, wiping out half your station, only for a stray meteor to hit your solar array, powering down your life support while everyone is snoring away in bed. Trade any of the myriad of goods you scrounge up. Become a mining station, strip mine entire quadrants and sell the runoff to a trading faction nearby but be wary of pirates and face eating space-squids.
Satisfying simulation gameplay
Meeple Station was birthed from the love of two genres. The complex simulation genre, like Dwarf Fortress and Rimworld and good ol' real-time strategy games, like Age of Empires and Starcraft. We let these genres blend together to create complex but friendly gameplay that leaves you with a strangely satisfying sense of accomplishment, alongside a smooth UI that won’t leave you fumbling around a hundred hot-keys.
