About

There is a problem with interplanetary civilizations: developing them takes more resources than a single planet can offer, and sometimes even a planetary system is not enough. Especially if you have competition.

In distant cosmos, two sister planets have reached a rather tense situation. The ancient greed, inherent to both civilizations, has driven them to most dramatic measures: the building of massive cannons, aimed directly at each other. Let the game of interplanetary artilleries begin!
Gameplay
Interplanetary is a turn-based strategy game for PC, Mac and Linux, featuring both single- and multiplayer modes. It is inspired by classics like DEFCON, Civilization series and old-school artillery games.

Your goal is to cause damage to the enemy's planet and to protect your own. Manage your planet's infrastructure using the limited natural resources and research new technologies to develop even mightier weapons and defenses.

At the end of each turn, there is a chance to shoot your interplanetary guns and try to hit major strategic points on the enemy's planet. Be precise, and you might manage to navigate your railgun slug around other planets and their gravity wells, straight into enemy cities!

2 comments by Jeoo on Oct 1st, 2014


Can't see anything anymore!

Greetings, Interplanetarists! We come bearing glad tidings.

To ease the wait until the next proper update (it'll be a doozy!), we decided to put out a little patch to fix some big annoyances.

First of all, we've begun a great networking overhaul, one that should fix a huge amount of the current problems with online play. While the results are still a couple of updates away, today's patch contains an important network fix, sort of as a teaser of things to come: the turn processing fix!

There's nothing quite as aggravating as having your game crash in between turns because of some random reason. That random reason turned out to be lasers. Due to some hitbox weirdness, a laser blast would sometimes not reach the planet surface at all, causing the game being confused and calculating the attack forever. This should now be fixed.


Lasers, nature's little troublemakers.

Next on our list of fixes is something many of you have been waiting for: the structure graphic/intel fix.

A while ago we made an experimental intel system change that allowed players to see the locations of enemy structures, but not any of the details. This turned out to be pretty unpopular, so we're hereby changing it back! As of this patch, all the city graphics and building graphics will be hidden unless the player has enough intel to see them. Because of this change, we also made a couple of balance tweaks, mainly having to do with beefing up the targetable weapons and nerfing defense buildings to account for this added layer of defense.

That's all the big changes now, but do check out the detailed changelog for every little thing.

Interplanetary Version 0.6.4981_EAC_6.6

  • Fixed online games crashing at turn processing due to Laser weirdness
  • City and Building graphics are now visible only if the player has enough intel
  • Camera now centers on the player planet when entering Targeting View
  • Material production upgrades changed to consume Planet Material
  • Cities now get destroyed when population reaches 0, as opposed to 1/6 of maximum
  • Sun gravity increased
  • Laser effects made slightly more visible
  • Defense building Visibility increased
  • Railgun Visibility slightly decreased
  • Missile Population damage increased
  • Laser Population damage increased
  • Defense Energy consumption increased
  • Upgradeable Intel amount for Data Security Hub decreased
  • Upgradeable Counterintel amount for Telescope Array decreased

And what better way to celebrate the patch than...

The previous Whack-a-Dev turned out to be so cozy, we thought of having a home-broadcast again. So, catch the whacking stream on our Twitch channel and join the discussion in the chat. Just like the previous time, a couple of us will be playing a match or two of Interplanetary and chatting around, answering the questions you post in the chat.

And, as always, for every dev you manage to defeat we release free Interplanetary Steam keys into the world. You can follow the giveaway at our Twitter and Vkontakte pages.

Whack-a-Dev is a regular Interplanetary event, where members of Team Jolly Roger host online matches and challenge the players. Defeat us and we release Interplanetary Steam keys into the wild!

Blast you soon and blast you hard!

Hi! At the moment we don't have any plans for demo. But, perhaps, you could leave us your computer specs, so we can let you know if the game would work for you :)

I posted a comment here and got a alpha key in a PM over a year ago, thing is i never knew PM's where a thing on desura XD. Only found out about the message today... oops. anyway before i found out about the message i was bored and looking through my bookmark tabs and found a link to this page buried away in there. after taking another look i'm impressed. nice to see it still being worked on and even green-lighted too. I've seen lots of cool larger scale games like this and usually after the first little while of development the game just kinda fades away but its great to see this alive and well.

The exploration of space is not completely absent from IP universe, it's just nowhere near as advanced as in most scifi universes. As in, no starfleets. We imagine the entry level to be what our technology might be in 50 years or so.

@SteerableLemur Server should be fine. Sometimes the game randomly doesn't want to connect to the server, though. A reboot usually fixes it.
