Players will have to excavate an underground colony to escape the hostile surface of the world. They need to control a number of characters and robots to mine minerals for construction, build rooms to house, feed and entertain colonists, and construct intricate defences to protect them from dangerous wildlife.

The player's colony will face dangers including earthquakes, solar flares, meteor strikes, and hostile indigenous wildlife.
