And for our Kickstarter backers, an exclusive potato fragrance!

So many potatoes!
Potato Planet! is a first person action physics puzzle game. With potatoes. So many potatoes!
You've crashed on a strange planet where potatoes are the dominant lifeform. While solving physics puzzles and fighting off angry potatoes, you must retrieve bits of tech from your crashed spaceship that have been scattered about in order to upgrade your weapon and make repairs to your ship so you can survive and get home. A computer AI companion helps guide the way and provides snarky commentary.

Potatoes are your only resource!

You quickly discover that baby potatoes are useful as ammo, food, and as an energy source for your power-hungry weapon upgrades. Baby potatoes are not mobile or sentient, so they are also an easy food source for some other life on the planet.

Baby potatoes are incubated in weird nodules. Smash them to harvest!

Potatoes are deadly!
Adult potatoes do not appreciate you harvesting their young. Getting smashed by 300lbs of tuber is not a pleasant experience, so be careful! These potatoes are slightly smarter than an average Idaho Russet. Which makes them the most intelligent potatoes in the universe. If you are not smarter than a potato, you may find this game too challenging.

Yes, it's terrifying

Physics puzzles!
Use the environment and potatoes to solve physics puzzles. Rock too big and heavy to push out of the way? Mashed potatoes are an excellent way to reduce friction. Don't like running? Mud is really sticky. Need to jump higher? Mushrooms get big and bouncy when you feed them potatoes. Some objects can be moved around, others can be destroyed. Just remember that doing it quietly while firing as few shots as possible is your best chance of survival.

Mashed potatoes are slippery.

Handy icons appear when looking at an object you can interact with to indicate if it can be picked up, destroyed, or combined with something else.
