If you enjoy base building and resource management, and fancy having a bit of coding and automation thrown into the mix, then there's good news. Autonauts, from developer Denki and publisher Curve Games, is arriving on the Switch and other consoles on 16th June, so it's just a couple of weeks away.

An award-winning title and popular on Steam since its release in 2019, it's received plenty of praise for its style and smart utilisation of familiar ideas; check out some official details below.

Autonauts is a game that oozes personality and innovation to offer players of all ages a chance to explore a unique and colourful universe of coding and crafting. Build a mighty Bot workforce to automate everything in your settlement; teach them what to do, and expand their brains and operational potential with numerous upgrades and options. Create rudimentary crafting items and structures from blueprints, and build dozens of different Workerbots to make your new planet a fully functioning home.

The Autonauts console version is a brand-new player experience, providing fans with an evolved tutorial and structure that enables them to hone their coding skills more quickly and effectively. Conveniently code mechanical helpers by showing them what to do step-by-step, be it cooking, farming, mining, construction and so much more; then sit back and watch your automation ‘ant farm’ carry out their duties.

Autonauts combines the best of coding, crafting, simulation, world-building, production-line, and resource management to create a truly awesome experience unlike any other.

A sequel, Autonauts vs Piratebots was only recently confirmed for a Summer release on Steam, so we hope to see that on Switch in the future if the first game performs well.
