Explorium is inching towards the BIG UPDATE, set to release 2014. This MASSIVELY HUGE UPDATE includes insane features such as INFINITE WORLDS, LIGHTING, AND MORE!

A Huge Update

Explorium was originally made in GameMaker; a slow, simplistic engine made for really basic games.
The current state of the game is broken, filled with bugs, and just plain not worth playing.
But now...

I've re-created Explorium in a completely new engine (Microsoft XNA) and it's going to be awesome.
So, what are some new features, you maybe asking?

New Features

  • Infinite, persistent, randomly generated worlds!
  • Beautiful, smooth lighting!
  • Improved player physics and animation!
  • Highly increased performance!
  • An awesome new soundtrack!
  • Stunning visual effects!

...and a lot more to come!

Release Date / Future Development

The alpha will be released within 2015. The ALPHA stage will be free, and not too content-heavy. It will stay on IndieDB. The BETA stage will hopefully launch onto Desura and grow in popularity. At this point, I will start formal beta testing. The game will be priced at a few dollars. The FULL RELEASE will hopefully (crossing fingers here!) end up on Steam. The price of the game will be higher than beta.

REMEMBER! The above screenshots are of a very early version. There are many important features missing, but you get the idea.

See you next time!

Here is the current updated changelog.
