It is the year 2287, one of the first colony ships sent out by Earth arrives at the planet Maria, in the Epsilon Indi Star System. During its landing sequence, something appears in front of the massive ship that causes it to lose control and crash into the planet. Some of the colonists survive in lifeboats, but what they find is an unforgiving land filled with creatures ready to outlast the visitors from Earth. Now the survivors must explore, gather, build, create, fight, and ultimately, conquer the land.

Planet Explorers

And here we are, after two and half years in Early Access, we're finally ready to release the game on Steam. This does not mark the end of development for this title, we will continue to bug fix, tweak, and update this title for at least another half a year, after that it will depend on sales. We plan to continue to add more side stories to both adventure and story mode. We're also looking into putting in features that were left out of the final build, such as animal riding.

In this build, we've also opened up the language spreadsheet so that players can do translations into their own languages if they want (and then load that spreadsheet ingame), we'll talk more about this in a couple of days.

We have found that there have been players who change numbers with a third party software in multiplayer games, giving them the ability to one hit kill other players. So, we added an anti-cheating mechanism. When we detect cheaters, he or she will be kicked from the game. If this persists for 3 times, he or she will be banned from multiplayer and reported to Steam. This is a new feature that we hastily put together, so we do need a lot of community input on if this is the right way to go and if it's fair for everyone involved.

Anti-cheating


We're also in the process of pushing out a demo for new players and the OST for tomorrow (or whenever Steam approves). The OST's a DLC and will cost $3.99 on Steam. The 32 bit version of the game will be later this week or next.

Finally, we want to thank everyone who's been with us throughout Early Access, without you, we wouldn't have been able to be where we are today. There were a lot of rough spots throughout development, but we tried our hardest to make the game as well as we can make it. We hope you'll enjoy it.
