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.

Happy Holidays everyone. Here's the a0.9 build. It's about a year late, and we are truly sorry for that, but sometimes, a major rewrite is needed (in retrospect, it's up for debate). For players updating from a0.87, this is pretty much a new game. Everything has been changed over the last year. This build is a bit rushed, so we expect there to be bugs. We'll straighten these out over the next two weeks. From now on, we'll be updating directly to the release build instead of the beta. We will be releasing a new demo based on the a0.9 build within the next two weeks as well.

every time i play adventure or build mode i spawn 5-10 meters up in the air, then fall to my death. When I play story mode, I spawn out of the map area under water and drown.

What's your graphics card?

ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 series, but why should that affect where I spawn?

Ah, we're having problems with the ATI 4000 series for the last 2-3 builds. Basically, the opencl isn't working correctly so the terrain's not being generated. We're working on that. :)

alright, is there some way for me to fix it on my end, or should I just wait for the next release?

Can you send us your game output log (in the game's folder) if that happens again? admin@pathea.net

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.

This is not an MMO is it? Was hoping it was like what Wurm Online should be. Seems like it is single player with multiplayer facets, but that 100s do not share the same surface.

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