Build an Off-world Colony in ‘Planet Explorers’
With massive monsters, the ability to build a whole city, and a massive alien world to explore, Planet Explorers could turn into a hit.
The game is being developed by indie studio Pathea Games and is just hit its alpha v0.1 release—which the developers say is far enough along that they’ll be releasing a free, public alpha next week.
The game takes place in 2287. You happened to be on one of Earth’s first colony ships, but when you arrive at the planet Maria and get ready to land, something massive appears in front of the ship, it loses control, and crash lands on the planet. Some colonists survive on lifeboats, but find themselves having to survive on a hostile alien world.
To survive, you’ll need to explore, gather, build, create, fight, and try to take the land from the strange and unfriendly alien inhabitants.
