Planet Explorers was just approved by Steam, and it's now downloadable and purchasable. The game is currently in early access, and it is still working through a number of bugs, but what's available within it right now is absolutely stunning.
Planet Explorers is a sandbox RPG, shooter, crafting, simulation, and just-about-everything-else-ish game of massive proportions. As the name suggests, your goal is to explore a planet. Here's how the developing company, Pathea, describes it:
Planet Explorers is an open world voxel based sandbox adventure rpg game set on a distant planet. The game uses a new OpenCL system based on the Unity 3D engine to allow players to change the terrain in anyway, create new objects in any form, and do it anywhere.
They had me at sandbox adventure rpg game. But there's literally no end to what you can do in this game, thanks to the ability to craft pretty much any item.
I live for games that let me stretch my creative juices while still keeping me challenged, so it certainly sounds like Planet Explorers is going to fill both of those requirements.
I am getting this game in the next day or two, so I wanted to open up a dialogue with a look at the media available for the game so far. Once the game is in my possession, I'll be adding more information in the form of new articles. A guide, maybe, in-game screenshots of the Alpha to Beta process...new addition updates, etc. For anyone who loves adventure on the high...uh, planets, you really should check this game out. Although the price point is $24.99 as of 3/12/2014, it certainly looks to be worth it.
Alright, let's go. First the trailer.
