FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS SATUS?
Satus (Latin for beginning/sowing) is a sandbox style settlement management sim that’s heavily influenced by 3 games: Timber and Stone, Rimworld and Minecraft.
WHAT IS OUR FOCUS?
The primary focus of Satus is survival and expansion of your settlement and characters, while game-play strives to make resources easy to manage, building fun and intuitive, and exploration meaningful.
WHEN WILL SATUS BE READY?
Satus began development in mid-2018, and a creative alpha release is planned for end of 2020/early 2021.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
We have made a promise to ourselves and our community that we will release a free creative alpha version hopefully near the end of 2020/early 2021. We want a free version at first to help collect feedback on the core systems built into the game as well as troubleshoot some of the early bugs. Sometime in mid 2021, we will release a survival alpha that will be a paid version. We have not set a price, but will as we get closer to survival alpha.
ARE YOU HIRING?
Currently, no funding is being raised for development, and all progress is being made by a small team of dedicated enthusiasts. That being said, we are always looking for new productive team members. If you still want to help contribute to this project, feel free to apply in the applications page
HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE?
Our philosophy is that we do not want to charge for a game until we (and our community) are happy with it. We do ask that you share this Discord with your friends! We strive to make Satus a community driven game and greatly value our community suggestions and input! However, if you are able and want to contribute to help minimize our expenses, we do have a Patreon page you can contribute to. Feel free to check it out at: https://www.patreon.com/Re3Studios
