What is the Game and why is it unique?

Ruin is a sci-fi sandbox MMORPG indie game running on windows with future plans to release on Linux and Mac. We are currently in open beta, and are looking for new testers to start playing to help find bugs and to test the server. We need help to increase the Ruin population during open beta so we are keeping the game free to play, Ruin is a unique sci-fi sandbox MMORPG because the official Ruin indie game servers are able to be downloaded by anyone for free. The sci-fi sandbox MMORPG indie game servers will be easy to mod and offer unique gameplay so no community game server will be the same as the other, if your not interested in customized gameplay created by the community we also have official game servers that allow you to play the normal game unchanged fitting the original vision for the sci-fi sandbox MMORPG Ruin indie game.

Ruin has a 3D environment and the gameplay combat is tab target. You can flatten mountains, remove rocks, cut down trees everything you see in the sci-fi sandbox MMORPG indie game Ruin can be changed by the players. Each planet in the game is procedurally generated, and on top of each procedurally generated planet we place 1 from 100s of variations of landmarks or custom game areas that fit inside the procedurally generated planet. The mixture of procedural and custom content really helps create a less procedural experience in the game giving the world of the sci-fi sandbox MMORPG indie game Ruin a non procedural fun explorable world that the players will want to experience by filling the procedural game with equal amounts of custom made areas.

If your interested in playing the sci-fi sandbox MMORPG indie game Ruin then account creation is free and easy you are able to create your game account at portal, you can also download the game at our download page. In the future we will be releasing a launcher that will automatically update the game but until then updates for the game will be manual, when the game is out of date you will receive a message in the main menu asking you to please visit playruin.com to update to the newest version.

Successful Closed Beta v0.1

Thank you everyone who downloaded and tried Ruin closed beta v0.1 its been 3 months since the release and during that time I took a rest and worked on concepts for v0.2 improvements and other quality of life or required updates needed for moving forward with the website and the game. During the closed beta v0.1 we experienced 0 server crashes and perfect server stability during the whole test. The servers are currently closed in preparation for upcoming open beta v0.2 which should last longer and include updates during the open beta v0.2 and further into the future.

Auto Updater

I'm excited to announce that version 0.2 will include a built in auto updater which patches the game per patch file, this will allow us to release fast and small updates when ever needed without having to wait for large meaningful updates like from version 0.1 to version 0.2 which has already been 3 months.
