Too Far, Too Late

Base Building, Colony, Survival, Sandbox game

Too Far, Too Late is a colony game in which you and your team of colonists will start a new colony in space. You'll decide whether you set up a self-sufficient colony, or rely on trade to get all the resources you need to organize your survival.

In this challenging and immersive game, you will be tasked with building a base from the ground up, mining resources, crafting essential items, and growing plants to generate food and oxygen.

Advanced atmospheric and fluid simulation
With its advanced atmospheric and fluid simulation, "Too far, too late" brings a new level of realism to the colony-building genre. You'll need to carefully manage the atmosphere of your base, making sure that it's not too cold or hot for your colonists and that the air is breathable. To achieve this, you'll need to build pipes to transfer gases, filter them, and maintain a stable climate within the base.
As you progress through the game, you'll encounter new challenges and obstacles, and you'll need to work together with your colonists to overcome them. Whether you're dealing with limited resources, harsh weather conditions, or unexpected events, "Too far, too late" will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Explore, Mine and Build

Build a space station, a moon base, a Martian colony or even a mining station in the asteroid belt to get enough resources to hire specialists and expand your colony across the solar system.


In this game, you'll have the opportunity to explore the vast and untamed landscapes of the Moon and Mars. You'll encounter different types of terrain, resources, and obstacles, and you'll need to use your wits and resourcefulness to overcome them. With the help of your colonists, you'll be able to venture further and discover new areas, unlocking new resources and opportunities.


Mining is a crucial aspect of "Too far, too late". You'll need to extract valuable resources from the surface of the Moon or Mars in order to build your colony and survive. To do this, you'll need to destroy rocks on the planet's surface to reveal valuable ores such as iron, copper, gold, or quartz. You can also choose to build a deep mining machine that will allow you to extract even more valuable ores from deeper within the planet. These ores will be used to craft a wide range of construction items and machinery to help you build your colony and keep it running smoothly.


In the game, you'll need to construct a base that will provide shelter and protection for your colonists while they explore the Moon or Mars. To do this, you'll need to use a variety of construction materials and techniques. One of the most basic construction elements in the game is the frame. The frame acts as a foundation for your base and provides stability for all other structures built on top of it. On top of the frame, you can build walls, floors, and machines that are essential for the survival of your colony. For example, you can build life support systems, air filters, and generators, as well as machines for processing and refining resources. By carefully planning and constructing your base, you'll be able to ensure the safety and well-being of your colonists, and create a thriving colony on the Moon or Mars.

Survival is not easy

In "Too far, too late", survival is the key to success. The colonists under your care will need access to essential resources like oxygen, water, and food to survive. Additionally, they'll need a good balance of work, health, and leisure to maintain their health and happiness.
As the leader of the colony, it's your job to ensure that everyone has what they need to thrive. You'll form a strong work team with the other colonists, but you'll also need to hire specialists who can bring valuable skills to the colony.
However, these specialists will need to be paid to stay, so you'll need to carefully manage your resources to ensure that everyone is taken care of. With careful planning and attention to detail, you'll be able to create a sustainable colony on the Moon or Mars.

Will you survive with your colony ?

There are many ways to produce or extract the resources needed to survive, and you'll need to take control of advanced gas and atmospheric simulation to keep your base breathable and at the right temperature.
You'll need to mine, produce or buy resources to develop your facilities and produce energy. You will improve your technologies by researching ways to build the components and systems you need to produce fuel and assemble a spaceship or even a rocket to travel again.

Gameplay of “Too far, too late”

Building a basic shelter: When you first land on the Moon or Mars, you'll need to build a basic shelter using the elements provided by the lander. This will provide you and the colonists with a safe place to rest and work.
Solar panels: You'll need to build some solar panels to keep your base energized. This will allow you to power your machines and keep the lights on.
Mining resources: You'll need to start mining resources from rocks in the surrounding area. This will provide you with the materials you need to expand your base and keep your colonists fed and healthy.
Smelting ores and crafting resources: You'll need to smelt the ores you collect into ingots, and then craft more construction resources to expand your base.
Finding water: You'll need to find ice, which can be melted into water, to provide for the colonists and the plants.
Greenhouse and crops: You'll need to start a greenhouse, plant some crops, and harvest food to keep your colonists fed. The plants will also generate oxygen, which is essential for the colonists' survival.
Biomass energy: You can use biomass to generate more energy, which will help you keep your base running smoothly.
Research: You'll need to do research to unlock new machines and building elements that will help you build a more advanced and self-sufficient colony.
Commerce: You can engage in commerce with Earth and other colonies, trading resources and goods to help your colony thrive.
Building a spaceship: When you have enough resources, you can build a spaceship and travel to a new location to build a new colony.

And similar to Rimworld, the game challenges players to manage a colony and survive through random events, farming, and resource management.
Players who enjoy the base building and production mechanics of Satisfactory will also find a lot to love in "Too far, too late".
The mining and resources management in "Too far, too late" also align with what Space Engineers offers, but with the added complexity of a harder survival mechanics and atmospheric simulation, and the possibility to build bases on multiple planets.
Overall, "Too far, too late" offers a unique and challenging experience that blends elements from some of the best colony simulation games on the market. If you're a fan of games like Stationeers, Rimworld, Satisfactory, or Space Engineers, you won't want to miss out on this exciting and immersive adventure.
