Embark is currently in Early Access. Please purchase only if you want to support development of the game, expect bugs and other issues. You will receive a steam key when Embark releases on steam.

Embark is a deep colony sim in a huge living world. Inspired by the deep simulation of Dwarf Fortress, the open world survival of Minecraft, and the social interactions of The Sims. Embark follows a group of explorers who find themselves on a strange, seemingly uninhabited planet.

A fully 3D destructible world allows you to build anything from small trading outposts to huge fortresses. An intuitive interface makes managing your colony easy. Order your people to build complex structures and sit back and watch as they complete them.

A source of fresh water is critical to your colony’s survival. Water volume is simulated (and limited!). It flows like you would expect it to. Build pumps and aqueducts to move water.

Give them some free time and characters will write books and potentially teach others their skills. Design luxurious rooms to keep them happy Characters in Embark are simulated in detail: They get hungry, thirsty, lonely, or tired. They each have their own interpersonal relationships, social status, and personalities. With the game’s focus on smaller groups each member of your colony is unique and important, and you can really get to know your people.

Explore a huge procedurally generated 3D world and meet its inhabitants. The map is over 2km by 2km, over it are scattered flora, fauna, and various factions and encounters. Juggle between building your base and exploring the map for more resources. You will never feel cramped by the looming edge of the map.

Modding will be fully supported by Embark.
