Departure (Colonies Online)

by Neon Insect

subscriber exclusive


Music made for the russian MMORPG "Colonies Online".
"Departure", so the name of the track, originally was meant to be Menu Music but ended up being used in a trailer in 2015.

It was recorded and produced by the end of 2014. The quality is a bit off compared to my recent works.

About the game:
Unfortunately development has stopped, but the game is available at steam: and can still be played.

My very subjective point of view is the following: The idea is great but the game has huge technical issues and gameplay is far from polished, but it is playable.

"Distant future, the frontier of known space. Brave colonists are making their path on uncharted planets, fighting for a place under foreign stars.

One of these brave men is you. Drop down to the surface and make the first steps towards building your own space colony! Fight with hostile fauna, conquer new territories, build alliances and march to war against each other. Build settlements, protect and develop your foothold as you like – most importantly, do not forget that it will not be so easy to survive, to preserve and increase your belongings – in Colonies Online the world is common for all, and there are many colonists besides you in the game, and all of them are operating their own interests – that means that nothing and no one is safe. "
