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.

In a span of a few days, Planet Explorers has been Greenlit by Steam as well as crossed the goal in Kickstarter. This is thanks to a lot of your help! The Kickstarter has less than 48 hours to go, so please help us spread the word one more time to get our end result as high as possible so we can solely focus on making the game great instead of on financial matters.

Regarding Steam's Early Access, I know many of you want to play games in Steam so that they're all located in the same place. But, we will not put the game on Steam until we feel the game's ready for prime time, which means probably not until beta 0.1. The first batch of Early Access games have not been received well by some players, we don't want that negativity. The launcher we'll have for a0.6 will be able to give you the patch updating most of you want, so it should be more convenient anyway.

So for a0.6:

- a0.6 in mid-late May, probably late-May because we've never quite hit our dates exactly right, in our development, we take apart the game between builds and don't rejoin the pieces until near the completion date, then when we finally put it together, there usually are a lot of bugs and unforeseen circumstances. But we might get lucky. :)

- Mac version is working and ready to go by a0.6.

- Linux Nvidia version is working completely, AMD version is working without crash but has shader issues (such as underwater fog). This will also be ready to go by a0.6

- Minor things: adding in ladders (2X1m), laser muzzle, glass windows (1X1X.02m), personal energy shielding, and a paint sprayer.
