Greetings Pioneers!

Ever since Eden Star launched into Early Access in January this year, we’ve been amazed at the community’s response - from reporting bugs (and feeding us a constant supply of awesome suggestions!) to creating quality video content and some pretty dang impressive in-game bases! Our mantra with development of Eden Star has always been to work with our community, building solid foundations for new features whilst molding them using community feedback and our own passion to see Eden Star succeed - so for all your input so far, we thank you!

Today we’d like to give just a little something back - this will be the first of hopefully many Community Update blog posts, where we highlight some of the amazing stuff our community come out with on a regular basis. We hope this will encourage more people to get involved (links to our various community sites at the bottom of this post!).

Firstly, I’d like to do a quick shout-out to YouTuber Enigmius! Over the past few months he’s put out almost 30 videos of his adventures on Pharus 7 and we hope to see many more :) Go ahead and show him some love here!

So, without further ado... our updates last week introduced a whole load of new features, but one of our biggest changes came in the form of an entirely new and shiny Build system and you guys have been going all-out with it, using the new buildables to create your own (relatively) safe haven on Pharus 7. Below are just some of the cool things we’ve seen over the last week:

My personal favorite though is this monster fortress by Quadraxis77. Fully kitted out with an arsenal of turrets and a huge gatehouse it’d be a long hard slog for any would-be invaders to get to that Eden Kit - at least until the Juggernaut comes along ;)

Well, that about wraps it up for our first Community Update! If you’d like to get involved, there’s a bunch of links below. We’ve also got a sub-reddit which can be found here!

- Joe

Met Kyle and Andy at Razzed 2015 today. Top lads.
I remember seeming Eden Star at EGX 2013 and it was very minimal. 'Tron like' they called it. Now it's a lush, and frankly beautiful, world. It plays smoothly and has some surprises (the mad Glove of Awesome flinging of creepy wazznames into trees is brilliant). Looking forward to the guys filling the world with even more critters.
What I saw was very polished and very impressive for the work of a dozen or so peeps. Keep up the excellent work.

Looking forward to the next update, it'll have far more to do in it and a lot more balanced AI.

The new build is Wonderful!, I however cannot seem to find the eden pack..
Am I missing a beacon or is my understanding of the interface convoluted?
No "M" map button concerns me.
That said, Had a wonderful run, just need more navigational tools. Or I dont see them.

Hi Jet, it's early days still so there's no map yet, however if you look on the cumpass at the top of the screen, there will be a bright yellow marker that shows where your Eden Kit is!

At the start of the game there is a short placeholder Cutscene that shows debris falling through the atmosphere - follow the pillar of smoke :) you'll find it. There may also be a few other places to check also...

Thanks Johnny, I saw the yellow indicator, though it never seemed to trans pond to the terrain.
I will give it another go this morning.
Thanks for the speedy reply.

I'm untested. But since nearly no game fulfill promises in early access, I can't trust my money before release.

Hope you will be an exception.

Still, until the release.

Hi Dreamer, thanks for the comment :) We hope so too. Our aim is to make the game the best it can be through Early Access.

Keep watching videos and other players responses to Eden Star in the mean time, and hopefully you will like the features we have in there already.

Is there anything in the game you're looking forward to seeing in particular? We would love to hear from you about it! :)
