* 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.

* While this is not your goal in ''{{XCom}} Interceptor'', as various corporations are the ones who set up mining bases in the Frontier, your task is protecting them from alien attacks.

** 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]].

* In ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', following the conclusion of Space War I, which nearly annihilated all life on Earth and reduced the human population to mere millions, a massive space colonization program was started. The idea was to spread humanity out so that if Earth got blasted again, the whole human race wouldn't be at stake. Later series take place either on colony worlds or on large fleets looking for a colony world to settle.
