I’ve been playing Aven Colony recently, having discovered it on the Game Pass list. At its heart it’s a relatively simple sci-fi resource management game where you guide the development of colonies on a distant planet.
It’s the sort of game that I can lose hours to, especially as it steps thrpugh a series of small milestones. As a result it keeps me hooked enough that several evenings this week have swept by.
There is a story being told as the game options began to widen up, so I’m intrigued enough to keep at it, even as I keep a rueful eye on how late I’m finishing my evenings.
Just as well I’m on leave this week.
