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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
