You are a Shaper, emerging from the Vault after millennia carrying the ingredients to restore Gaia and its ecosystem to its former glory! Work alongside the Caretaker robot to earn Prestige as you restore the ruined biomes of the land to their former splendor, repopulate species old and new, and give life to a rejuvenated ecosystem. Accumulate the rare resources such as Nutrients and Energy to grow faster. But be careful! New biomes also provide resources to your rival factions. Shapers use their unique skills to provide different gameplay advantages and challenges. There are six Shapers to choose from, including Oraplexis Terraria, Rastar Nursery, and Synthara Lab.Use your unique abilities to come out on top as you compete with the other Shapers for resources and Prestige. Gain Prestige by arranging animals following their established behaviors, collecting DNA samples, and unlocking new Shaper abilities. Only the Shaper with the most Prestige (VP) at the end of the game will be allowed to permanently join the Caretaker as guardians of the rebirthed Gaia!
