Terran is not another space life simulator – you will not spend hours flying in empty, silent space. Your ship’s event system ensures a multitude of activities are at your fingertips, warping you to your destination instantly. The events may be mission orders and opportunities, or from a host of civil, military and environmental pursuits that grant you the chance to shape the galaxy or be shaped by it. The rewards for success and the consequences for failure are determined by how you choose to engage with these unfolding events and have no predetermined end or climax.

Design your own ships
Build your ship from an expanding array of parts in any of the 13 capital class categories. Research, manufacture, buy, steal and discover new parts. Assemble killer ships and even share them with your friends.

Command & Control
Receive and issue tactical orders in real time combat. Relationships, culture and individual persona affects how your forces will respond to your orders; objectives can be issued but loyalty determines how or even if they will be followed.

Capital Ship Combat
Take direct real time control of a massive capital class warship and participate in single ship, wing, flotilla, division and full fleet actions. From the agile corvette well under a hundred meters long to the huge Gar which can exceed 2,000 meters what you fly has a major impact on how you fly.

Civilization Management
Become the leader of a world, system, sector, region or the whole galaxy. You can join and rise in the ranks or form your own faction, corporation, crime syndicate or bounty hunter team. Grow and expand through military power, business savvy or political tenacity.

Galactic Quests
The galaxy is always evolving, reacting to NPCs and you. Events are always right at your fingertips with zero flying aimlessly in empty space and how you choose to engage in them if at all will guide the continuous evolution of your story.

Immersion
Like a true Thespian Terran is always in character and never admits it’s a game. You are a Terran pilot, a being merged with machine, feared and respected across the known galaxy. The game will present as if it’s your ship OS and the galaxy will respond to your skill and style presenting a constantly evolving and changing experience.

Native VR Support
Built in and ready to go support for popular VR headsets and of course for traditional screen play.

Heathen Engineering's Terran is still under development; features may be changed, added, removed during development and in later expansions. Check back frequently for news and updates.

Heathen Engineering's Terran


Terran is Available Now on Steam Early Access!

Early Access Phase 2 build available on Steam beta. The Sector K72 patch currently in beta introduces a slew of new features and gameplay elements to Terran. Player made corporations and governments, empire building, contacts, pilot enhancements and more are being introduced with Sector K72. In addition Terran is receiving a major tech update and will now support Direct X 12 and Vulkan graphics APIs for greatly improved visual quality and performance.

Not sure if the game is ready for you?

No problem! Heathen Engineering has the Terran Roadmap posted publicly so you can see what the development team is doing and when. You can jump in on the discussion with the Steam Community Hub or join us on Twitter, Facebook and IndieDB or on Heathen’s main site. We want to encourage gamers to get involved with the community but to hold off on jumping into the game until you and Terran are ready for each other.

Terran’s Early Access is all about building a better Terran not about funding the project. Heathen Engineering will not be offering special Early Access pricing e.g. the price you see now is the intended full release price. You can chat with the developers through the Steam Community Hub, check out all the latest news on the social sites and get involved with the development of Heathen Engineering's Terran.

Want to play now?

Head on over to the Store page on Steam, Green Man Gaming, Bundle Stars or Indie Galla. If you have any questions or should you run into any issues you can contact Heathen Support through Heathen’s Help Centre or by e-mail at Support@HeathenEngineering.com or of course throuh the Steam Community Hub. We couldn't be more excited to have you help us shape the galaxy and make Terran all it can be!

Heathen strongly encourage everyone to head over to the Terran Roadmap and have a look at the current state, the past work and check out the latest release notes. We are always looking for ways to improve the transparency of the development efforts and your feedback is key to that effort.

I think you need to review a couple of things, firstly you're trying to sell an early access game at full price even though your game has very little features, it won't entice people to purchase early to "support development" and looking at steam it's been 3 months since you've done an update which also doesn't look very good.

However the idea of your game excites me and sounds really promising so i'll follow the project for now but please consider the points I've made.

Thank you for your feedback, and apologies for the delay this message didn't appear in my box yet its dated for Sep :(

Starting the Early Access off so early in the development process and at full price has been a question mark for quite a few.

Terran's Early Access however was not started so early in order to fund the game's development rather to enable those interested in the game to get in early and help mature it not simply test it. As you noted the game is not yet feature complete, as of the Sep patch Terran is still in Phase 1.

As to span between Steam announcements or updates to the Main branch I'll bring that to the team. The Beta branch which is available on Steam to all who have the game is updated rather frequently with its changes reflected on the Trello road map, while Main is only updated as given bench marks are hit and stabilised such as the Sep patch. This can certainly be improved to at the very least be more apparent and we will take that on board.

We are gearing up to announce the next patch now which will transition the game into Phase 2 of our Early Access plan and is a perfect time for us to make changes and improvements to how we meet the communities needs. I hope you follow the project and let us know what you think.

Heathen's Terran is am ambitious game featuring capital spaceship combat, ship building, faction, corporation, bounty hunter gangs and crime syndicates that can be formed, taken over or joined and served. Manufacturing, politics, trade, black markets and a rich persona system for the NPCs.

The game features can be staggering; so is it all to much, not enough or is goldilocks and just right?

Which feature/s sound most interesting to you or have we just missed your favourite of SciFi gaming all together. Let us know on the Steam Greenlight Concept page where we have set up discussion forums for this and more.

Looks very awesome. I can't wait to see more gameplay. Will you be able to land on those pretty planets?

While planet side gameplay is something we have thought about a lot its below some of the other wishes on the list :)

Territory Assets
Take ownership of planets, stations, fields, etc. and build/expand on them increasing population, resource gain and output of various products such as ship components, commodities and technologies. Become your own faction and enter the political/conquest side of life.

Corporations
Create or otherwise 'acquire' business, establish trade and manufacturing, employ or be employed to climb the corporate steps. A powerful corporation can even rival the authority and power of the factions.

Syndicates
Establish or join criminal organizations, weave a network of smugglers, contraband manufactures, spies and other shady operations for profit or just to mix it up ;)

Hunters
Become a bounty hunter, vie for position on the hunters leader board and earn more profitable contracts with none of the baggage associated with military service or faction rule... not every one likes politics, sometimes you just want to blow things up :)

Things are moving along and we hope to announce the start date for Early Access soon.

We will be running Early Access in 3 notable phases the first of which will focus on the Ship Editor (build custom ships) and of course testing them out in space and combat :)

Hope you keep an eye on Terran and see how it matures, it has come so far just since the Greenlight we really cant wait to get it out to people and start the feedback loop!

and that one is a little wikia site we are working on; at the moment it only has techy bits about how we are laying out the game's subsystems but will grow as more is completed.

The following are social links i.e. Facebook etc.
