Before We Leave is a non-violent city building game set in a cozy corner of the universe. Nurture your Peeps and their surroundings while rebuilding and rediscovering civilisation. Settle new lands and planets while avoiding hungry Space Whales. Your Peeps have spent generations underground. They’ve missed the caress of sun on skin, the squelch of soil between toes, the tickle of flies on noses. They emerge, full of wonder, but with no idea how to grow anything – except potatoes. Start rebuilding their lost civilisation by providing shelter, uncovering ancient technology, and expanding this reborn society to other continents and planets. There are no weapons, no battles with neighbours for control of resources – just you, and a solar system full of opportunities.
Rediscover what was lost and nurture your reborn civilisation in Before We Leave, a non-violent city building game set in a cozy corner of the universe. Grow, gather and manage resources to help your settlements thrive, and share goods between the hexagonal lands and planets around you. Relax and expand the fabric of your growing societies and create a solar system of happy planets at your own pace. Not everything will go your way, though – use your wits and research solutions to overcome the challenges that your ancestors once faced. But the universe is not safe. Ancient, ancestral guardians demand attention and challenge your settlements – it’s up to you to circumvent these creatures that hamper progress and disturb your newfound peace.

“The “non-violence” thing is what separates Before We Leave from other games in the 4X strategy genre. There’s no conquering or battles, unless you count human impact on the natural world — which, certainly, should be counted.” Polygon
