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

The animals are dependent on the mission given, so they should be near the character giving the mission most of the time. They spawn in a circle near where you're walking, so if you walk back and forth for like 50m, they will respawn different ones randomly. What were you trying to find? If it's the turtle, in this version it broke.

You mean for the fat? Did you open up the mission window? They show you the picture of the animals. The little hare creatures are everywhere.

The hare creatures that gives fat should be everywhere, unless you're saying they're not dropping fat (which is balancing issue). It's the white fluffy looking thing. The lupis wolves are the devilwolves (I think we forgot to the change the names in the database), they're a little to the north near the coasts. We've been told repeatedly that the start of the game is too hard, so it's already been corrected in our internal build and will be ready for a0.4.

once i restarted the game they spawned, there were no animals anywhere at all. if an npc gets killed and you release them do they respawn or are they gone forever?

Is this v0.31? If it is, it's a bug, since we should have fixed it. The NPCs will die forever. Since there's a limited supply of them...well. :)
