Indie studio Supercube have announced that their debut survival space sim, The Pioneers: Surviving Desolation, will be coming to Steam Early Access in January 2023. After crash landing on Io, the Galilean moon of Jupiter, players must command three randomly selected crew on a mission to survive.

In command of the crew of Io-1, players will have to overcome the cold harsh realities of surviving in a hostile environment. Low gravity, volcanos, seismic activity and magnetic storms will put constant pressure on your crew and their ability to survive. Carefully monitoring beacons because of sulfur wind will be critical to survival in the toxic atmosphere.

Every playthrough of The Pioneers will contain different crew members selected from a pool of fifteen. Each member of the surviving crew will have different specialties and players will have to adapt to the strengths and weaknesses of each. Exploration will also be a key part of the game, with players able to experience varied biomes in search of resources to stay alive.

The Pioneers: Surviving Desolation is coming to Steam Early Access January 2023. Players can wishlist on Steam now.
