habitat2[dropcap]H[/dropcap]ighly customizable games have been all the rage lately, so it’s no surprise to see quite a few looking for a home and some funding on Kickstarter, but unfortunately, in a sea of uninspired Minecraft and Terraria clones, it’s hard to see a gem when it comes up. Luckily for you, we here at Cliqist are all about gems, and Habitat, currently being developed by 4gency might just be… Well, that.

In Habitat, you start off in a low orbit around Earth as a little spaceman in a sea of complete and utter crap. The sky is just littered with pieces of buildings, old rockets, heads of the Statue of Liberty, and other various items, and it just so happens that you need a home. Your job is to lash together a few pieces of junk, creating your very own makeshift spaceship using some very cool building mechanics, and then help that junk be the best junk it can be. You make the junk home to not only you, but others, and have a happy life in space, building your junk-constructed spacecraft. Unfortunately, you’re not the only one out there tying debris together… And the other people don’t like you very much.

Habitat: A Thousand Generations in Orbit is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter with an initial goal of just $50,000, and developers 4gency plan on releasing this title on PC, Mac, Linux, and Xbox One, so keep an eye out for that, and if you’d like to support the game, you’ll be rewarded for your donations, including the ability to name various objects and personnel in the game.  The Habitat Kickstarter runs until May 2nd and has a funding goal of $50,000.
