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!
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!
Surprise! The shiny new Interplanetary: Enhanced Edition is available on Steam right now!
As we have announced earlier this summer, this is a massive update for Interplanetary. So massive, that, in fact, it is its own game. Essentially, this new version is a re-build of the entire game for the sake of making it more stable, as well as better sounding and looking. It’s still the same old Interplanetary deep down, but better.
As we are taking Interplanetary to the new level, we are also expanding the geography of our community. In this version we are introducing localization into German language. More languages coming soon!
The update also includes a bunch of new features, some of which had been much requested in the last couple of years, like Online AI Bots, Reconnect and new weapons. Find the full changelog in our dedicated Steam forum thread.
So, how do you get a hold of a copy? If you already own the original Interplanetary, then it’s all good. The Enhanced Edition should be waiting for you in your Steam library now. Find it and get to installing.
If you don’t own a copy of the original game, you can purchase the Enhanced Edition through its separate Steam page. The initial version of the game is also included in the new version and should appear in your library automatically if you purchase the Enhanced Edition.
The original Interplanetary will no longer be on sale as a separate package. However, for the time being, the store page and the community hub will remain open.
Though the Enhanced Edition is, in a way, completing Interplanetary, it is not absolutely final as is. Rebuilding a game from scratch hasn’t been smooth sailing, as expected. While we’ve bulldozed over most old bugs, completely new issues have periodically risen. As a matter of fact, we’re already hammering away at some upcoming fixes and we’re prepared to keep working at it for as long as we can. Please bear with us through the initial roughness.
For future patching, it’s essential that you give us feedback on your game experience. As usual, the community forum is the ideal place for that. The Enhanced Edition does have its own forum already, so join the new discussions and be excellent to each other!
