Please feel free to ask questions or share opinions, we are working on something we think is quite special. Its been months of secret development, we write all technology and tools ourselves, trying to create a unique and exciting experience.

What kind of game is it?

This is an open world/universe, you have to discover ways to travel around, make alliances and solve a mystery. Find new places, life forms, architecture, vehicles, spaceships, weapons, animals etc

It is a mission based game with a lot of choice and impact, visceral gameplay with large scale and variety. We are focused on adventure, experimentation and fun.

Yes it will have more content than Plunderland, we learnt a lot from that game. One of the biggest things is it was really hard to make updates to Plunderland and eventually we hit technical limits.

With this game we have built the engine with easy updates and new content in mind, we have tools to create new species,planets, spaceships etc and an in engine editor so we can fine tune and add new content much easier.

We are aiming to release before the end of the year, sooner the better. We will be more specific as soon as we feel confident about a date.

Things like this are always great to hear!

I loved Plunderland, so if these things are all true (which I think they are) this game will be amazing.

More than likely an instabuy for me.
