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.

Hey everyone, it's been a while since we've updated here. We've just been way too busy getting to the current build, which is now at a0.72. A lot of new features have been added since the last update, you can read up on them here: Planetexplorers.pathea.net The game development is going pretty well, we've had some technical hurdles, but so far, we've been able to overcome them. 

Demo links: 

PC: Indiedb.com
Mac: Indiedb.com
Linux: Indiedb.com


The demo features the grassland area in the story mode and the entire build mode. For people that has trouble running the game, make sure that your graphics drivers are up to date. If that doesn't help, change the opencl calculation option from the gpu to cpu. 

If you like the demo, you can get the full alpha version of the game by preordering on our website: Planetexplorers.pathea.net We plan to release on Steam Early Access probably late next month, I'll have more on that next week.

Also, check out some of the cool new creations made by other Planet Explorers players here: Isoplanetexplorer.com

I got a control issue: once the player character is free to go (after the initial chat), it behaves like the A and W keys are pressed simultaneously, i. e. just runs sideways to the left. Maybe this is somehow related to me having two joysticks in the system... However, with both devices disconnected the same thing happens. I cannot stop the character at all.
As for the game, it looks very promising (albeit not a firsthand experience just yet). Always wished for a game like this... From the Wilderness and Robinson's Requiem onwards.

Mine is also doing this. I have removed all joysticks and deleted the drivers. Even changed keyboards to try and rule that out. Doesn't seem to make a difference. With mine, if I press back and right (s + d) the character will stop.

I could stop the character this way only after reassigning movement keys from WASD to the cursors (otherwise the character starts running backwards and to the right with the S+D depressed). This didn't help the problem much however, and what's more, the WASD keys are still can be used to control the character the way they did before the reassignment. The middle mouse button doesn't seem to be doing anything. So, probably it's some autorunning bug.

No, it's not a MMO. Single player with multiplayer options.
