2 comments by clarky006 on Nov 14th, 2014

Greeting Traveller,

Until now you may have seen snapshots, this video however shows the hostile planet at its most benign. Our verdant paradise provides ample opportunity for players to harness the organic environment, gathering minerals in order to bolster your defenses in preparation of the belligerent dusk. At sunset the tranquil day gives way to the terror stricken darkness, the indigenous and injurious creatures of Pharus, drawn to the powerful energy of your Eden Kit will attempt to swarm your defenses, laying siege to your base and ridding the planet of your alien threat.

For later releases of the game we are working on making the air itself corrosive on the planets surface. During the day sunlight will alleviate the deadly effects of the atmosphere, Meaning resource rich caves becoming a tempting but potentially fatal foray into darkness. The deep shade of the forests will be an intimidating prospect, forcing players to improvise, blasting and shooting out the canopy to feel the reassuring warmth a distant unearthly sun and providing respite from the toxic atmosphere.

In Eden Star surviving the night requires a conglomeration of ingenuity, preparedness and skill. Hunkering down and waiting for the dawn is simply not an option here, on Pharus 7 the night is most deadly before the dawn. Each day on Pharus is a reward, not a given.

It's getting there Shakes :)

We are going into local tests very soon, but there are many bugs at the moment that need squashing and so we are getting as many sorted as possible before release! We are soon to announce a private test day held at the Epic Games Lab at Staffordshire University with 70+ people to see how it plays and to check for bugs. We will then a announce when the intended release date is for the soft-launch of the early access game via Steam. We have a LONG way to go before Eden Star is truly the vision that we want it to be, but that needs to be shaped by the people who have invested their time and money (you!) into the embryonic state of the Eden Star universe. That's what we always intended and what we want to see through.

After release we will be attempting to support as many people as possible in order to get the game running on as many systems as possible, any crashes crushed, bugs squashed and the game a little optimised to keep the framerate up. After that, it's where the real fun starts :)

Just replied, please let us know if you have already got it working - the main thing to check is your drivers and post us your computer sprec so that we can make sure it's able to run on your rig. Also - what version of windows you are running :)

Thanks again Jet

Hey Shock, it's Unreal 4 but heavily modified physics and our own custom destruction system - feel free to tweet us any questions and we will try and get back to you asap.

Thanks again for your interest.
