Klei Entertainment’s Oxygen Not Included, a side-scrolling survival title with adorable graphics, has officially exited early access after more than two years of development. The PC version is now available, complete with numerous updates and quality of life changes over the years. Check out the launch trailer below.
In a recent forum post, the developer noted the title’s journey till now. “We started with a game that had little more than a few Duplicants and some pipes full of cold water,” they wrote. “Since then we’ve added oil biomes and automation, Duplicant skill progression and tubes to zip around in, critter ranching and breeding, and more features than could possibly be named. Now Duplicants can even break through the surface of their rocky home and escape away into space… with your guidance, of course.”
Oxygen Not Included will continue to receive patches for bugs and other issues in the meantime. Klei Entertainment will likely add new content in the future as well. After all, it’s other big survival property Don’t Starve continues to receive new DLC and expansions even now, despite first launching in 2013.
Next up for Klei is Griftlands, a card-based RPG where players can venture throughout a land with randomly generated events and encounters. Based on the cards in their deck, they can either fight or converse their way through danger. The game’s alpha is currently available on the Epic Games Store with a Steam Early Access release for the beta coming in 2020.
