We’re a big fan of city-building games here at PCGamesN. We’re also partial to a good space game too, not to mention our affinity for a decent RTS romp. Combine those three and you might have a winner, but you definitely have Industries of Titan.
Announced all the way back in 2017, it’s been building up traction since April last year after it launched in early access on the Epic Games Store. Over a year later, it’s landed onto Steam Early Access.
Industries of Titan challenges you to create a new city on Titan, one of the moons of Saturn. There’s a decided economic streak to everything – similar to Offworld Trading Company – and your new settlement is backed by a corporation that will be fighting against other, rival corporations for fiscal dominance. Exploiting local resources and making everything as cheaply and efficiently as possible is the order of the day, but you also have to explore and exploit ruins of a lost civilisation. Some special buildings allow you to build mini-factories within them, allowing you to kick-start your economy so that you can afford better, more powerful versions of things.
