Posted by on

It's been a long time coming, but we're excited to finally be able to say... GEARS OF EDEN Alpha 2 is here!!!

We’ve been working hard for the past year to achieve this milestone! As always, we maintain our usual disclaimer: this isn’t Early Access; this isn’t even a demo! This is an Alpha which means everything you see is in development and very likely to be replaced at some point down the road. It's really a proof of concept more than anything else at this stage, but we still hope you enjoy it!

We are extremely excited to share our progress with you. Alpha 2 is the product of our blood, sweat, and tears and we simply cannot wait to see what you think. You can download the client here on IndieDB, and you will also need an Alpha Key to play Gears of Eden - Alpha 2. Get your free key on our website!

Whats new, you ask?

If you played our first alpha release, you might be wondering what new stuff we’ve got in store for you. Well, we don’t have time to get into all of it, but let me give you a quick rundown. With this latest release, we’ve added: a Persistence system so you can get right back where you left off! We’ve also done a full overhaul on the UI system, fleshed out the crafting system, put in some cool Twitch integration for you streamers out there, and gave you some tools to make your time a little more comfortable. Oh, and did I mention that we have filled the asteroid with sights to see, hazards to brave, puzzles to solve and some hints at the full game’s story that we’re very excited for you to check out! And best of all? That’s not even everything! For full details, check out the changelog.

Neat!

Gears of Eden looks like a peaceful game.

There is just something about it that grabbed my attention.

I'll be keeping a tab on this one.

Hope to see more from this game.
