Gathering releases some information about the characters in their upcoming "sim" game.
Computer and video game publisher Gathering, a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive Software unveiled some information about the characters in Space Colony, a personality sim builder PC game.Space Colony invites PC pioneers to establish and build
cosmic settlements and manage a dysfunctional crew of 20 characters while fighting off alien attacks and attempting to make a profit. Space Colony is slated for release in October.
Space Colony¹s characters must be kept happy through strategic and
intelligent leadership, fair working conditions and by accounting for their differences. Space Colony¹s colonists include:
Venus Jones: At 23 years old, Venus is the game¹s wise, confident heroine. She is set on retiring by the ripe old age of 25, and therefore determined to help make the crew as productive and efficient as possible.
Tami Labelle: Drunk and rowdy, Tami loves country western music and men. She easily gets attached and is always looking for her next relationship.
Billy Bob Perkins : A gentle soul, Billy Bob is always willing to help out wherever and whenever he can. But he needs extremely precise and simple directions as his brain is not nearly as large as his heart.
Stig Svensson: A 36-year-old Norwegian biker whose manners are limited to the roadside. A big burly guy, he¹s got the muscle for lifting but his personality is anything but light and easy.
Mr. Zhang: Filled with ancient Chinese wisdom but as sour as a lemon, this 80-year-old man joined the crew so he could see space before he died. Now the crew is waiting for just that.
Candy Simpson: A 24-year-old Valley Girl, Candy is more interested in taking up space than contributing to it.
Hoshi and Kita: Inseparable Japanese punk duo is connected deeply by their souls. Together, they are a dynamic working duo. Apart, they can dispel fiery disharmony onto the base.
Vasilios ³Robot² Cosmos: Extremely quiet and shy, Vasilios came to the colony to escape ³them.² Who ³they² are remains unanswered, and no one really wants to disturb him.
Ashia Green: Fit and energetic, Ashia hails from South London and has come to the colony to forget about an injury that ended her athletic career.
Babette Devereux: The daughter of a French diplomat, Babette soon realizes that life in space is far worse than living under her father¹s rules and sheltered Earth life. Plus she is spoiled and lazy.
