Before We Leave is a non-violent city building game set in your own cozy corner of the universe. Rediscover and rebuild civilization. Create a multi-planet resource network. Overcome ancient challenges and fend off 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, discovering ancient technology, and expanding your reborn society to other continents and planets.

But the universe is not safe. Ancient, ancestral guardians demand attention and challenge your settlements - it's up to you to deter these threats that hamper your progress and disturb your newfound peace.

Play, chill out, and expand the fabric of your reborn society at your own pace while creating your own solar system of rehabilitated planets. Just watch out for those pesky Space Whales.
