The game is set in a Space Western universe - a subgenre of science fiction, that transposes themes of American Western books and film to a backdrop of futuristic space frontiers.

In Exoplanet: FC we have brought together distinctive elements of Wild West, futuristic technologies and feudal society of a distant human colony, placed on a wild and dangerous planet named K'Tarsis. The planet is going through dark times of crisis and chaos after a massive wave of gold rush. K'Tarsis is now a "ghost colony" with no law and order except of "the rule of gun and fist".


screensStyle

Exoplanet:First Contact is a balanced Action/RPG mix focused on exploring and interaction with the game's world. There will be no complicated statistic and numbers.

Action is represented by 3rd person shooter with deep gunplay and tactical variability, based on the so called "Gunslinger Mode" (see the 3d-screnshot in our video!). The "Gunslinger Mode" is an advanced variant of "slow time" game mechanic. It replaces the classic tactical pause but does not reduce the dynamic of the action that much.


Story

You start your adventures on K'Tharsis as Jack Sharp, a space nomad, who has lost his starship and wenslaved screensby some criminals. You must recover your freedom and avenge your foes.

Explore the dangerous planet and its darkest secrets! Find legendary treasures of mysterious race of so called "Dark Wanderers"! You will become a part of epic events and fascinating stories! Be prepared to take hard choices and be ready to face consequences! It's up to you to be a hero or a villain!



Key features:

  • Interactive environment as a gameplay component. For example you can catch a poisonous bug and throw him as a sticky grenade, causing chaos and fun! There are some riding animals, which you can use to kill enemies or cross obstacles and destroy defensives.
  • Non-linear story and various gameplay options. You can choose your tactics. Lead this world to peace and order or cause war, violence and destruction.
  • Dual wield guns and cold steel! Combine your attacks with interactive environment usage. For example you can grab, throw and shoot an explosive canister over a group of enemies to cause an effective area of effect damage.
  • Fascinating story and charismatic characters.
  • Exoplanet FC is a beginning of epic space saga!

Update #16

Hello, space cowboys!


The world of K'Tharsis has been through many changes since the last alpha version, and today we'd like to share with you footage of a new location. To achieve the best results, our team has decided to stop relying on bought asset packs. We’ve already told you about making of cliffs and rocks, and now we also have palm trees and other cool models. While this kind of approach does take more time, it allows us to produce more unique and satisfying content for you.

Unfortunately it also means that our Steam Early Access release date was postponed, but don’t worry: in about a month we will release a completely new closed alpha version for our backers.

And if you’re interested in joining the discussion and to check out our new alpha version, you can still do this at our website.

While the progress is hard to overlook, there is still much to be done in regards of level development. The main hero now has new animations and looks more natural.

However, right now our main priority lies with quests, so that the player will have something to do in the new version.

The indigenous people of K’Tharsis


We’d also like to present you an updated version of the K'Tharsis' aboriginal representatives concept art. It's hard to overrate an importance of a race that is going to be interacted with very frequently during the playthrough, that's why much time was spent carefully designing them.

Though native population of K'Tharsis isn't very technologically advanced, it mastered the antigravium works long before first humans stepped on their land. They craft from it jewelry as well as more functional items, such as weapons.

As the worldwide practice shows, a contact with an alien civilization is rarely beneficial to the ecology and population of the less advanced civilization, and aborigines on K’Tharsis weren't an exception. Once lived in their own closed world, they got new neighbors, who slaughtered much of the tribes and enslaved the most remaining. Nevertheless, some of the nomadic tribes are still free and frequently raid humans.

One of the consequences of the human invasion is a brute-aborigine. It's a result of genetic mix of humans and of the natives, a huge and strong creature. Usually they're used in mines as unintelligent and submissive workers, though some brutes are both smart and strong, which makes their social status undoubtedly different.

Run, Jack, run!


We’ve already mentioned that Jack changed significantly: he’s got a new outfit and new abilities – Jack can now jump up, strafe and much more.

Along with Jack some animals also got new animations, one of them is arphant:

We hate the delays as much as you do, but organizational matters such as looking for competent professionals of an adequate level and introducing them to our concepts, workflow etc took significantly more time than we expected. And of course, thank you very much for supporting us all this time – we’re trying our best to make a game which you’d want to play for a long time.

I sadly can't back this game. I don't have a credit card. :'(
Going to purchase it when it's released.
The game is looking pretty stunning. Reminds me of Half-Life Gunman Chronicles. :D

Paid, of course. We are not a MMO-game or something like that.
