System Era Softworks is a small group of veteran game developers headquartered in Seattle, Washington. Established in 2014 out of shared passions
for interesting gameplay systems and inspired by optimistic space-age futurism, we strive to build games that can serve as new inspirations for the next
generation. Astroneer is our studio debut title: a sandbox exploration game of intrepid discovery and interplanetary aerospace industry. Astroneer
will be available for purchase in December 2016 as an Early Access title on Steam, and as a Game Preview title on Xbox One and the Windows 10 store. Astroneer
will grow and evolve through our update roadmap with the help and guidance of the community. Currently, System Era is now hiring.
