Mothership Launch Complete, Destination: Aven Prime

Mothership Entertainment and Team17 have launched Aven Colony today, and puts you into the driving seat of an epic sci-fi city building adventure. Being only a 4-man team in Austin, Texas, Mothership Entertainment really pushed the boundaries of what they could do with building such an ambitious game such as Aven Colony, and in the end, they have succeeded with some help from publisher Team17.

Set on Aven Prime, an alien planet that has distinct biomes like Planet Earth, and not a “planet of hats” as some other games, you have to build up your colony into a large sustainable city, and deal with challenges as they come, even a functioning weather system thrown in. The single-player campaign is where you will test your mettle against harsh environments, freezing winters, lightning storms, ice storms, toxic gas clouds, even the local flora and fauna will pose a threat.

There is also a fully featured Sandbox mode with all single-player content available, and with a lot of customization for what you desire to do, and test before diving into the campaign. I do hope that Aven Colony is successful and we get to see other planets, even moons within the Aven System. So, put on your hard hat and get building that fancy new colony you always wanted as Aven Colony launches today!

Official Press Release


Build a new home for humanity in this gripping sci-fi city-builder

UK – 25th July 2017 – Award-winning veteran games developer and international games label Team17 and Mothership Entertainment announced today their engrossing sci-fi city-building and management sim, Aven Colony is now available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Today’s release sees the culmination of several years of work for independent developer Mothership Entertainment, a four-man team of industry veterans based in Austin, Texas.

Discover Aven Prime – an alien planet of deserts, tundras, and jungles light years from earth. Aven Colony puts you in charge of humanity’s first extrasolar settlement, where you build and expand your small colonies into massive, sprawling cities while dealing with the challenges faced when settling on a new world.

Dive in to an extensive dedicated single-player campaign, where you’ll need to brave Aven Prime’s harsh environments with freezing winters, lightning storms, ice storms, and toxic gas clouds. Prepare for attacks from the local lifeforms, including giant acid-spewing sandworms, “creep spores” that infect your buildings, and “plague spores” that infiltrate your colony and infect your colonists with a deadly plague. You must protect your colony from everything the planet has to throw at them, and shape the future of the survival of the human race.

All the single player content can also be explored in sandbox mode which allows players to tailor a full suite of options to customise the game experience including editing the starting resources, environmental events, minerals, and much more!

Aven Colony is available to download now for Xbox via the Xbox Store, PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store and for PC via Steam for £24.99 / $29.99 / 29,99€. A boxed version for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is also available from select retailers worldwide.
