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!

Available now on Steam Early Access.

0 comments by Jeoo on Aug 1st, 2014


Once again, we a delivering a fresh Interplanetary update with some new and interesting stuff. Nevermind the shortness of the changelog, it's pure business! Let's look into it.

What's New?


Good news for all of those sick and tired of waiting for long turn-processing. With the latest action phase optimization, turn-processing should go a lot faster! Down with the waiting!

To add some depth to the building phase, we are introducing a Building Upgrade Mechanic. This is what all that tweaking in the last update was building up towards.

Each structure now has two upgrade slots on their info window. Clicking on them allows you to buy upgrades that will boost the stats of the building. Want some more "oomph" to your railgun? Buy some damage boosts or AOE upgrades!

Be careful, though; once you fill the upgrade slots, you won't be able to add any more upgrades to that building or delete the ones you've added. Specialize accordingly.


For starters, there will only be a couple of basic upgrades available and just two slots for each for each structure, so play around with them and let us know what you think! We'll be waiting for your suggestions for future upgrades or system changes. The upgrades will get more diverse further on and most of them will be tied to the tech-tree.

Interplanetary Version 0.6.4390_EAC_6.5

  • Building Upgrade mechanics added
  • Turn-Processing time greatly improved

That's about it for this time! Check out the update and don't forget to let us know what you think.
As for the Whack-a-Dev, everything so far seems to be on schedule and you can expect it on August 9th, 6pm GMT/11am PDT. In the meantime you can learn to use the new upgrades efficiently and blast us into oblivion when the time comes! Looking forward to it!

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.

How will we colonize other planets if there are no spaceships? Teleportation? *Confused*

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.

I was really happy when I saw this get greenlit, well done! One question though: will it be available through other, non-steam means as well?
