EarthX is a space themed indie strategy game developed by Adrian, Denis and Sergey! The publishers are Mesote Games are known for publishing the indie title DevLife. It has received positive response from the community for being relaxing and yet challenging due to the strategy elements. Nothing is more satisfying than seeing your very own private company grow and dominate the world! Whether or not you are interested in space and rocket science or maybe you are just looking for a satisfying tycoon to play, I am almost guaranteed that EarthX will fill that gap for you nonetheless.
What I really like about this title is that it makes me feel like Elon Musk as I keep playing! It is all about developing and researching in order to strive for the newest technology. Maybe one day, you will be the one dominating the market! As your business grows, you will be able to expand even more and unlock more features. Having more than 45 different parts available will grant you the flexibilty to build many different types of rockets which will allow you to let your visionary mind flow! Never forget the endless possibilities before you! You can not only build rockets, but also spaceships and capsules. Later on, you might also even be able to send out some satellites into outer space! Don’t forget to hire trustworthy employees, along the way. Whenever you use a factory to build something, it will take some time depending on the amount of materials required in order to finish the component. In the end, these types of things are perfect for tycoons since it gives you time to focus on something else instead of focusing on one thing at a time. One of the most important things to keep track of throughout the playthrough is your money since your success will be dependent on that. The majority of the activities performed will cost you in one way or another since you aren’t the only one competing for the top spot.
EarthX is pretty much everything and more you would expect in a game about making your own company despite this title being in Early Access! Competing for the contracts and winning them over against other companies couldn’t feel more satisfying and rewarding! Once this title has left Early Access, things such as building your own moon base and a possible weather system might be implemented since it is an important aspect when it comes to space flights.
Now, finally, about the gameplay! As earlier mentioned, it feels like a nice take on your casual tycoon experience! A tycoon for me has to fulfil criteria such as feeling the satisfaction of your company growing as you experience the journey from being at the bottom to the very top. It is overall a very relaxing experience when the elements compliments one another, especially the simple polygon graphics combined with the advanced gameplay elements. If you ever have heard the expression, “Less is more” you might know what I am talking about since that is the case right now! I don’t think I will pick up this game in the near future and the reason for that is because the full release won’t be coming out anytime soon. I do believe in this title nonetheless, and really look forward to what the developers have in store for us!
At the end of the day, I really wish there were more things to EarthX! All things considered, I am very well aware that the title currently is in Early Access in the very early stage of the game but I will still give my feedback and opinions. I have been getting hours and hours of entertainment and pure enjoyment during my time playing EarthX, but I just wish there was more to it. If things go as planned and everything turns out fine, I am more than positive that it will become a huge success, especially for those who really enjoy a good strategy game. If you have cravings for either a tycoon game or a strategy game to put your mind into, then this might be a worthy candidate.

To put it simply, a quite interesting approach for a space themed tycoon! Still being in Early Access, it really shows how promising this title can be in the future. I want to see more titles like this one!
