* This is a big part of ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'''s lore. The game takes place on a colony world, several of the hunters previously held jobs protecting colonists from deadly alien fauna on their new worlds, and the constant expansion [[spoiler: caused the monster invasion by spreading the blight of Patterson tech]].
* This is part of the plot of ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda''. Besides exploring the Andromeda galaxy, you must carve out a home for yourself and the Milky Way colonists.

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'': after Earth's destruction by a pair of warring alien fleets, one of the few surviving colony ship crash-lands on a new world they name "Mira", and the game is mostly about the colonists' attempts to establish a permanent colony there. Things get complicated when they learn that (some of) the aliens that destroyed Earth have ''also'' crash-landed on Mira. It's suggested that other colony ships might have survived, but no one's heard anything from them.

** Outpost 2 is a more typical RTS game and while there is some building going on, ultimately everything you do will be destroyed by the apocalypse (possibly a reference to the first game's {{UnwinnableByMistake}} bugs). Though if you finish the campaign by outrunning the threat, [[spoiler: the survivors steal a rocket ship and depart to somewhere more hospitable]].
