Set in the distant future man has long since evolved beyond mere flesh and bone and is now one with the machine. You start your journey as a young fully realized but inexperienced Terran pilot free of any allegiances or obligations. Join or form factions, corporations, bounty hunter gangs or even crime syndicates as you forge your story. Rather you choose to fly solo or with a massive fleet, take to government or start a corporation the galaxy and gameplay will respond in kind to your choices and performance.

  • Choose your class
    Tune your ship as a Corvette, Destroyer, Frigate, Cruiser, Battlecruiser, Battleship, Dreadnought, Carrier, Fortress, Gar or Interdictor each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Design... to impress, thrill, dominate, destroy, the choice is yours
    Free form design your ship from a huge collection of components each contributing to capabilities and limitations.
  • Share and expand
    Import and export ship designs from within the game or install Unity 5 (free) and the Terran Dev Kit and and go deeper with mods and player authored expansions.
  • Dawn your armour
    Merge with your ship and take direct real time control of flight, aiming and subsystems; becoming one with the machine.
  • Find your path
    Join a faction military, apply to a corporation, exploit opportunities with a syndicate, or hunt your prey as a bounty hunter.
  • Create your story
    Forge an empire, dominate the markets, explore the stars, exploit the galaxy or become a champion of the people.
  • Change your mind
    Retire your command, disappear and change your identity or leverage your past to start a new future elsewhere; the galaxy is a big place full of countless opportunities, challenges and rewards; go find something new at the end of a cannon, in the board room, on the lips of leaders, in the hearts and minds of the people or in the endless expanse of the stars.

Heathen’s Terran has a Dev Build … so what is that some obnoxious name for pre-alpha? Not really; a dev build is a targeted build only specific features and functions are included, this is what developers use for ‘unit testing’ only typically they would run this in compiler or in the engine. Heathen has taken it a step further and compiled and packaged it up along with a companion document to help other enthusiast, fans and indie dev contribute to the testing process.

SteamPromo Large


There is a handy introduction vid which you can find on YouTube, IndieDB or right here in this article. Did I mention the Dev Build is FREE, no Kickstarter level to buy or Pre-Order or any of that; after all you are helping us to make a better game why should you have to pay to help us?

Installation is simple, the executable of the game is wrapped up in a zip file, so you simply need to unzip and double click the exe to be up and running. The build does implement Unity Analytics in a basic form so exceptions and some basic metrics like component count will be sent anonymously but human feedback is key here.

Heathen hopes there are a ton of people brave enough to jump into a development build and more hopeful that they will bother to e-mail or post on forums their thoughts and opinions. Even if no one says a peep though Heathen will be iterating on this idea and releasing updates to the Development Build right up until Beta testing.

This is actually a lot of effort but quality is very important to Heathen Engineering so the more hands, eyes and well whatever else you want to put on it the better. This also gives gamers, indie devs and the press the opportunity to give more meaningful feedback and guidance as you can you actually play key parts now. Story buffs don’t be worried Heathen will never release a build that includes any story spolilers.

The Dev Build is available now on Heathen Engineering’s Terran IndieDB download page which you find here. Note this build is Windows only; but if your interested in a Linux or Mac Dev Build just let us know.

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 :)

thats the main site link ...

That one takes you directly to the games page on the main site

Terrangame.wikia.com
and that one is a little wikia site we are working on; at the moment it only has techy bits about how we are laying out the game's subsystems but will grow as more is completed.

The following are social links i.e. Facebook etc.
Facebook.com
Steamcommunity.com
Plus.google.com

and finally our twitter is @HeathenEngineer
