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.

After fixing a lot of bugs and finding new ones, we've finally finished the alpha 0.55 multiplayer build.

Posted by zede05 on May 22nd, 2013

We wanted to release alpha 0.55m last week, but we ran into several major bugs. But whatever, here it is:

Download from IndieDB: Indiedb.com
Download from torrent: Pathea.net

Now, this build is multiplayer only! It still has some minor bugs, and it's not very optimized, so there will be lag sometimes. You can, however, get an idea of what multiplayer will be like. In this build, you can already build, dig, host, have tower defense with the monster beacon, and place down turrets. The terrain is now infinite as well. 

To host a server, you must have the private server unchecked (unless you want to host LAN). The game will still show up in the main internet lobby even if you're hosting LAN (it's a bug), so some of the games on the lobby won't let you log in.

Here's a vid of the build:


Support Planet Explorers in the Kickstarter Extension, only 3 days left!

Alpha 0.6 will be arriving in a couple weeks. Work on it has been proceeding somewhat smoothly, there just way too much we want to add in, heh.

Try the servers with people in them. We screwed up and included private servers in the main lobby, so these servers won't let you in (as well as older version servers).
