Terran is not another space life simulator – you will not spend hours flying in empty, silent space. Your ship’s event system ensures a multitude of activities are at your fingertips, warping you to your destination instantly. The events may be mission orders and opportunities, or from a host of civil, military and environmental pursuits that grant you the chance to shape the galaxy or be shaped by it. The rewards for success and the consequences for failure are determined by how you choose to engage with these unfolding events and have no predetermined end or climax.

Design your own ships
Build your ship from an expanding array of parts in any of the 13 capital class categories. Research, manufacture, buy, steal and discover new parts. Assemble killer ships and even share them with your friends.

Command & Control
Receive and issue tactical orders in real time combat. Relationships, culture and individual persona affects how your forces will respond to your orders; objectives can be issued but loyalty determines how or even if they will be followed.

Capital Ship Combat
Take direct real time control of a massive capital class warship and participate in single ship, wing, flotilla, division and full fleet actions. From the agile corvette well under a hundred meters long to the huge Gar which can exceed 2,000 meters what you fly has a major impact on how you fly.

Civilization Management
Become the leader of a world, system, sector, region or the whole galaxy. You can join and rise in the ranks or form your own faction, corporation, crime syndicate or bounty hunter team. Grow and expand through military power, business savvy or political tenacity.

Galactic Quests
The galaxy is always evolving, reacting to NPCs and you. Events are always right at your fingertips with zero flying aimlessly in empty space and how you choose to engage in them if at all will guide the continuous evolution of your story.

Immersion
Like a true Thespian Terran is always in character and never admits it’s a game. You are a Terran pilot, a being merged with machine, feared and respected across the known galaxy. The game will present as if it’s your ship OS and the galaxy will respond to your skill and style presenting a constantly evolving and changing experience.

Native VR Support
Built in and ready to go support for popular VR headsets and of course for traditional screen play.

Heathen Engineering's Terran is still under development; features may be changed, added, removed during development and in later expansions. Check back frequently for news and updates.

Terran Patch update

Terran Banner


Heathen Engineering’s Terran has been updated with new combat missions, improved ship AI, new ship parts and design features like decals and materials in the ship editor. The last round of patches have been accelerated from the previous patch cycle with more content updates releasing every couple of weeks. The Terran development team is putting more focus on expanding and refining content with many of the mechanical systems that drive the gameplay having reached a stable point.

Terran Early Access

Terran was released into Steam Early Access March 21st 2016 in a very early state of development with key game systems not yet implemented. The goal of Terran’s Early Access program has been to guide the implementation and development of the key systems with early adopter player feedback. Terran’s Early Access price point is the full game price that is the price is not discounted for early access and will be what it is now on full release. The decision to go with full price Early Access aligns with the objective of the Early Access, marketing for the game has been light favouring smaller player populations with stronger interest in the project during its earliest phases.

With the game’s key features coming on line and additional content being patched in more frequently the game has a lot more to offer a wider audience than previous builds did. Players can claim and manage worlds, design and build ships and take quests from personal contacts and NPCs you meat while flying about. Terran still has some ways to go before Early Access is wrapped up and the full game is play ready but now is a great time join Early Access and contribute to the finished game.

If your not quite sure the game is ready for you head on over to the Terran Roadmap and take a deeper look into what development team is doing. The Steam Community as always, is a great place to get involved and doesn’t require purchase to access. The Terran developers are active on the Steam Community boards and welcome any questions or feedback they can get from the community.

Heathen Engineering’s Terran is available now on Steam Early Access for PC, Mac and Linux or can be purchased from Greenman, Bundle Stars, Indie Gala or directly from Heathen Engineering via the Humble Bundle widget. Links to all these stores and the projects social networks follow.

I think you need to review a couple of things, firstly you're trying to sell an early access game at full price even though your game has very little features, it won't entice people to purchase early to "support development" and looking at steam it's been 3 months since you've done an update which also doesn't look very good.

However the idea of your game excites me and sounds really promising so i'll follow the project for now but please consider the points I've made.

Thank you for your feedback, and apologies for the delay this message didn't appear in my box yet its dated for Sep :(

Starting the Early Access off so early in the development process and at full price has been a question mark for quite a few.

Terran's Early Access however was not started so early in order to fund the game's development rather to enable those interested in the game to get in early and help mature it not simply test it. As you noted the game is not yet feature complete, as of the Sep patch Terran is still in Phase 1.

As to span between Steam announcements or updates to the Main branch I'll bring that to the team. The Beta branch which is available on Steam to all who have the game is updated rather frequently with its changes reflected on the Trello road map, while Main is only updated as given bench marks are hit and stabilised such as the Sep patch. This can certainly be improved to at the very least be more apparent and we will take that on board.

We are gearing up to announce the next patch now which will transition the game into Phase 2 of our Early Access plan and is a perfect time for us to make changes and improvements to how we meet the communities needs. I hope you follow the project and let us know what you think.

Heathen's Terran is am ambitious game featuring capital spaceship combat, ship building, faction, corporation, bounty hunter gangs and crime syndicates that can be formed, taken over or joined and served. Manufacturing, politics, trade, black markets and a rich persona system for the NPCs.

The game features can be staggering; so is it all to much, not enough or is goldilocks and just right?

Which feature/s sound most interesting to you or have we just missed your favourite of SciFi gaming all together. Let us know on the Steam Greenlight Concept page where we have set up discussion forums for this and more.

Looks very awesome. I can't wait to see more gameplay. Will you be able to land on those pretty planets?

While planet side gameplay is something we have thought about a lot its below some of the other wishes on the list :)

Territory Assets
Take ownership of planets, stations, fields, etc. and build/expand on them increasing population, resource gain and output of various products such as ship components, commodities and technologies. Become your own faction and enter the political/conquest side of life.

Corporations
Create or otherwise 'acquire' business, establish trade and manufacturing, employ or be employed to climb the corporate steps. A powerful corporation can even rival the authority and power of the factions.

Syndicates
Establish or join criminal organizations, weave a network of smugglers, contraband manufactures, spies and other shady operations for profit or just to mix it up ;)

Hunters
Become a bounty hunter, vie for position on the hunters leader board and earn more profitable contracts with none of the baggage associated with military service or faction rule... not every one likes politics, sometimes you just want to blow things up :)

Things are moving along and we hope to announce the start date for Early Access soon.

We will be running Early Access in 3 notable phases the first of which will focus on the Ship Editor (build custom ships) and of course testing them out in space and combat :)

Hope you keep an eye on Terran and see how it matures, it has come so far just since the Greenlight we really cant wait to get it out to people and start the feedback loop!
