RimWorld is an indie top-down construction and management simulation video game by Montreal-based developer Ludeon Studios. Originally called Eclipse Colony, it was initially released as a Kickstarter crowdfunding project in early access for Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux in November 2013, and was officially released on October 17, 2018.
The futuristic plot originally revolved around three characters being stranded on a planet located in the frontiers of known space (a "rim world"), where their space liner crashed. The game is set in a universe where faster-than-light travel and superluminal communication are impossible, making large galactic empires inherently unfeasible.
As time goes on, more characters will join the colony. They can either join of their own free will, or they can be taken prisoner and talked into joining the colony. Like starting characters, they have a random set of traits generated by the game's machine.
The game can end when at least one character has escaped the planet on a spaceship, or when they are all dead. However, players are given the choice to continue to play, as it's possible to wait for a wanderer to take up residence in the ruins of the colony and continue the game.
The objective of the game is to ensure the survival of a colony of people, fighting against various environmental and/or internal events. Much of the difficulty as well as the critical acclaim for the game come from its unpredictability, through randomly generated events, and its extensively designed and customizable world. As the game progresses events become progressively harder and the player can unlock more advanced technology through research. The game has a top-down, two-dimensional view.
