Post news RSS Planet Explorers Alpha 0.55m Available

After fixing a lot of bugs and finding new ones, we've finally finished the alpha 0.55 multiplayer build.

We wanted to release alpha 0.55m last week, but we ran into several major bugs. But whatever, here it is:

Now, this build is multiplayer only! It still has some minor bugs, and it's not very optimized, so there will be lag sometimes. You can, however, get an idea of what multiplayer will be like. In this build, you can already build, dig, host, have tower defense with the monster beacon, and place down turrets. The terrain is now infinite as well.

To host a server, you must have the private server unchecked (unless you want to host LAN). The game will still show up in the main internet lobby even if you're hosting LAN (it's a bug), so some of the games on the lobby won't let you log in.

Here's a vid of the build:

Support Planet Explorers in the Kickstarter Extension, only 3 days left!

Alpha 0.6 will be arriving in a couple weeks. Work on it has been proceeding somewhat smoothly, there just way too much we want to add in, heh.

Try the servers with people in them. We screwed up and included private servers in the main lobby, so these servers won't let you in (as well as older version servers).
