I have been able to succeed in this step.

1. You will probably have seen that rocks give you magma and mushroom-things give you food. If not mine them. (Note that the amounts on top of the screen are NOT in the same scale as the building costs.)
2. Select the building and start building. If you have not enough materials (it drops to 0, you need to get more)

I hope this helps.

PS: We'll need a user manual.

There was supposed to be some user documentation at <http://www.boswars.org/wiki/index.php/Bos/BosPlayersGuide>; alas, there is almost nothing so far.

I started the tutorial.  It told me to gather energy and magma to build two power plants and a magma pump.  I sent my engineer to gather 100 energy and 20 magma, which is all the capacity I have, and not enough to build anything.

Now what?  No manual, no docs, no tutorial hints.  This game looks really promising, but really, no user docs at all?  I'm sure I'm missing something really big, but whatever it is, it needs to be advertised much more prominently.
