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.

Pathea Games is proud to announce Planet Explorers, a voxel based openworld sandbox adventure rpg game.

Posted by on

And the secret is finally out of the bag, Pathea Games' next project is officially revealed at Game Developers Conference 2012. We've been working hard on this project since August of 2011, so it's been a while, and we're excited to be finally showing it to the public.

With Planet Explorers, we're trying to advance the sandbox building genre that's been the rage since Minecraft. We think there are a lot of potential in this genre still waiting to be unlocked, and we plan to implement lots of cool ideas in Planet Explorers that will push the boundaries above and beyond what current sandbox games offer.

For one thing, we have smoothed out the voxel terrain so that it looks more realistic. We have also figured out a way to rebuild the voxel data on the fly to ensure an open world. With these technologies, we aim to ensure as much freedom as possible to the player. We'll dive deeper on what those possibilities are in future posts. But for now, enjoy the trailer and screens!

As a side note, the game right now is pre-alpha, we pretty much got it up and running in competent form just days before GDC. The plan right now it to have a beta version out by July. For more information and updates regarding the game, visit Planet Explorers' page.
