It is the year 2287, one of the first colony ships sent out by Earth arrives at the planet Maria, in the Epsilon Indi Star System. During its landing sequence, something appears in front of the massive ship that causes it to lose control and crash into the planet. Some of the colonists survive in lifeboats, but what they find is an unforgiving land filled with creatures ready to outlast the visitors from Earth. Now the survivors must explore, gather, build, create, fight, and ultimately, conquer the land.
So this is the first unglamorous look at procedural terrains (including caves!) in Planet Explorers. Once we add the flora and lighting and different biomes and...well, pretty much everything over the next month, it'll look a lot better! :) The procedural maps will be used in single player procedural mode and multiplayer adventure, creative, and versus.
