But then the twist comes - helper robots. You can program these robots to automate your tasks. Using a simple visual programming tool a bit like Scratch, you effectively learn to program these robots. It’s a bit complicated to start with but you soon get to grips with how to do it.
It all works because having done the leg work yourself, you appreciate how powerful and flexible it is to use the robots. The world you are building starts to grow and take shape faster, and you can move on to more ambitious tasks.
Expand further with the creation of colonists; beings that require your assistance to survive. Push your worker bots further by introducing fishing, cooking, housing, and tailoring and help the colonists into a state of transcendence.
Autonauts combines the very best of agriculture, simulation, crafting, building, production-line and resource management titles to create a brand-new experience unlike any other. Create the automated world of your dreams.

9+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The game can appeal to really young players but the automation aspect of play is best enjoyed with some understanding of programmatic processes. Not that you need to know how to code, but you do need some logical and systemic thinking.
