World Turtles

Re: cOg Mission have announced that World Turtles will be entering Early Access in August.

The space-faring city-builder game will enter Early Access for Windows PC via Steam sometime in August. World Turtles will also be getting a new demo as part of the Steam Next Fest on June 13th.

World Turtles is a colony management sim set on the backs of giant turtles flying through space. Lead a small tribe of Meeps and guide them so they can live in harmony with the giant World Turtle they call home. Research new technologies to improve the lives of your Meeps, and deal with climate and environmental changes as your World Turtle flies through space.

You can find an older trailer for the game below.

You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

World Turtles

World Turtles is a wholesome colony builder where you guide a tribe of creatures called Meeps in their mission to save themselves and the life of the World Turtle they live on. Will you find peaceful, sustainable means of existing in harmony with your world and neighboring Meeps, rather than heartlessly exploiting or conquering one and all? Will you navigate the forces of nature, learn how they work and harness their power to affect progress without destruction? Will you be a part of the journey?


In World Turtles the player must guide the Meeps in their journey to save both their World Turtle and themselves. To do this they need you. Help them with gathering resources, constructing buildings, expanding their skills, improving their efficiency, forming societies and researching new ways of advancing and improving the environment.

They, and their children, are going to need all the help they can get if they are to have a chance of saving their turtle. And who knows? Along the way, you may meet and save others too as the Turtle flies through different parts of space with various characteristics.


  • Lead a small tribe of Meeps and evolve them into a thriving self-sufficient and efficient community.
  • Set on, and actually involving, a huge turtle floating through space.
  • The Turtle’s position in space impacts life on the Turtle, including climate and water levels.
  • Prioritize separate technology trees per building type, coupled with an overall technology tree.
  • Explore the far reaches of your turtle to find new lands and cooperate with other bands of Meeps.
  • Balance Meeps experience to progress and improve efficiency.
  • Conquer land, water, air and space… together… for good.
