Mercury Fallen is a survival strategy with city builder influences. Much of the inspiration for the game comes from great titles like Dungeon Keeper II and Banished. The core focus of the game is to help your colonists survive on a new planet by building and maintaining a functional underground facility.
The game is very much still in development so more information will be forthcoming as things progress. In the mean time check out the developer blog for more details.
