Realm Explorer will be a computer game about creation in the fantasy universe of Gnostaria; your creations. In perhaps the most dynamic sandbox world yet to be conceived you will be able to dig the soil and mine ore, precious metals and gems all in a beautiful and dynamic 3D world. The terrain will shape and form to your actions. Drive a shovel into the ground and watch the earth give way. Heave your pickaxe into a cave wall and see the stone disintegrate before you; revealing the treasure beneath. Go on adventures alone or with friends via internet multiplayer and craft weapons, armor, tools and other items. How you play is up to you. The possibilities are limitless.

Thats a crazy step forward, didn't expected such a mind blowing update!
The Graphics looks impressive, the physics are pretty cool and it seems to run very smooth. Great, can't wait to try it on my own. Keep the good work up!

Holy crap, that is beyond amazing, is the water finite or infinite? Like could you drain out an area by connecting the bottom of it to a cave system?

That's very nice! I love the way the water rises. Is the fluid finite?

I hope the water's more like the game From Dust, both finite and infinite.

This week's update was a little delayed due to some technical issues (and Gabriel went on vacation!) but we've prepared a look into some of the new enhancements we've been making to the terrain engine. As you may have gathered from the title, foliage, fluids and physics are all in various stages of development (along with a lot of other things!). We hope you're as pleased with the current progress as we are!

Rich, dense foliage will make your realms feel even more alive. There's just something nice about roaming through lush grass and other plant life as you adventure and explore isn't there? Don't spend too much time relaxing by a calm lake or placid river as... did we say lakes and rivers? Real time fluids have been in development and will bring tons of new possibilities to your realms. Whether they create an obstacle to overcome in your adventures, a barrier around your kingdom or a life line for your farm or village water will add a new dimension in an upcoming patch.

Finally you may recall our work on "hair physics" as part of the character customization implementation. We're continuing to experiment with physics-based effects and think that making trees tumble to the ground is another good use. We won't be stopping there but we think the results look quite good so far.

That's it for this week! As this was a late update intended for last week we'll technically have 2 updates posted this week.

Keep an eye out for the next update and don't forget to join us at!
