Early Access ends, incoming updates

Perpetuum will end its Early Access phase and "launch" officially this Friday, the 17th of October.

The quotation marks are not incidental as you probably all know that we've had our official launch a few years ago and this EA phase was only to warn new players about possible issues while we were making the transition to Steam and our new servers. Now that this is done and everything is stable, it's time to leave that tag behind.

Of course this won’t really change much from a development perspective, we’re continuing on the road we have laid out and keep improving the game.

We'll be deploying a few updates in the coming weeks, including a larger balance package for robots, and some small but significant changes to gamma island and intrusion mechanics. Meanwhile we're preparing a larger PvE update with the revamp of our mission system, this will be discussed in detail in one of our upcoming blog posts.

This and more in our October status report:

I have been playing Perpetuum Online for many years. This game really shines in large scale PVP warfare. Even with hundreds of battles under my belt being the Fleet Commander, Ewar Captain, DPS Lead, or cog in the wheel in a pack of mechs I still get goose bumps when we engage in battle. The combat is heavily dependent on terrain, skill and overall situational awareness. There is no point, click, and wait. You are on your toes 100% of the time and mistakes can cost you a fleet.

Small gang pvp 3 to 5 players is super fun with gorilla style tactics allowing you to move practically undetected through islands to find a target and strike. Rewards from the mini game of capture the flag on SAP warfare for stations can cover the lose of many, many bots and modules. The Bold are rewarded.

Industry in this game is like Crack. I'm not going to lie, once you get sunk into it with the level headed ness of the system it really is a no brainer and fun to watch those factory lines ping. You can produce at ANY station, you can gather what you need in the surrounding areas in a complex manner of finding ore fields and extracting them from the ground. Plants on terrain are harvestable too. There is NO RANDOM PROCS on industry, it is spreadsheet friendly and the market isn't completely convoluted with who can sell it first.

Best of all No subscription. You buy it, log in every 3 days you get EP. I've spent more money on a bad acid trip. You'll spend hours being immersed in a planet that is utterly amazing.

Is this a FPS? No. This is a lock, acquire and shoot type MMO. It provides a level playing field for older players who feel they can't compete with twitch based gamers. It's a great game to add to the collection and the community is small enough to join in and be something. So your not a 1 in 1 Million type customer who thinks his $ is thrown at a developer to be forgotten, your voice on the forums really helps.

Contact me in game as Ville if you have any questions.

Quite an interesting game with enough chalange to keep you busy for quite some time. In comparison to many other games it requires some thinking, this side has enough to keep you going for a long time. However, the servers seem kind of empty, and it is a true sandbox game... it is what you make of it. If you like a steep learning curve, don`t mind the somewhat outdated graphics, no fancy cutscences in combination with a game that actually makes you think you will enjoy this. Take in account that it`s at the fee of 2 months of subscription of most MMO games it is very enjoyable.

I might be biased, but I like sandbox MMOs and theres so few true ones out there, but this is one of them.

Sandbox MMOs are usually only targeted towards a very small community of players and Perpetuum isnt any different. It has a decently low population compared to many other typical class/level/themepark MMOs. However, it doesnt lack any proper tools or contents. Everything needed in the game is in there. Some things could definatly get a little overhaul, like organisation and UI for corps (alliances?) ect. but nothing is truly missing, its in there and it works.

I recently left Eve Online after playing the game for 3 years. It is very hard to enjoy any theme park style games after playing a sandbox style game. So I set out to find another sandbox style game.

About a month ago I found the game Perpetuum Online. I quickly read about the background story and checked out the games’ media. I then looked further into the games’ information and I found it was a sandbox play style game. Now this was a big find since there are very few sandbox style games. Plus, Perpetuum has robots and mechs! I was very excited to have found the game being a big fan of the mech genre games.

First glance of screenshots and videos of the game I saw a clone of Eve Online. I didn’t care if it was a clone, but I wanted to make sure it had enough differences for me to invest my time in the game. I did some more research about the game and found that there were a lot of differences about the two games. You can see plenty about the game from the media released by the games’ developer Avatar Creations and beta testers.

I was hooked right away, so I signed up for a chance to join the closed beta testing.

I quickly found many people on gaming community sites bashing Perpetuum for being a clone of Eve Online. I found it ridiculous since there have been clones of games for a long time now. WoW for example has tons of clones (Runes of Magic, Allods) just to name two. Then I realized the problem, this was the first game to try and clone Eve Online indirectly or directly. Being the first of your genre or the first clone is the toughest…

At the same time most of the games that are consider the parent have also taken elements of games that came before them. This is something that has been happening in the gaming industry for a long time.

So lets take a look at what elements of Perpetuum that make it a clone of Eve Online and also look at the elements that make it different.

Lets start with the clone elements…..

First thing that the user is presented with is the Graphic User Interface (GUI). Perpetuum’s GUI looks as though it is a total rip of the Eve GUI. Yes, it is true many elements are exactly the same as Eve’s GUI. There are reason for the Perpetuum GUI looking just like Eve’s GUI. Lets just look at one example of the two games GUI.

Perpetuum has a lot going on within the game and is forced to give the user/player the correct GUI elements to navigate the world and accomplish this without making it hard for the user/player to achieve their in game goals. The same thing is true for Eve and as more features are added the developers have to find suitable ways to present the data to the player. When it comes to specific types of data the best way to present it happens to be the very common columns and rows taken from spreadsheets.

If you look at Eve’s Overview window and Perpetuum’s Landmarks window they are very similar becuase of the data they want to present to the user making the game have a since of ease-of-use. The overview and landmarks windows are not there for you to stare at like it is a piece of art. They both help the player navigate the world in the most efficient manner. It would be ridiculous for Perpetuum not to use this type of UI window just to save some face from being called a clone at the loss of an efficient way to present the user data in a well formatted manner.

Another aspect of Perpetuum that leads the player reviewer to call it an Eve Online clone is the developers choice of robots and mechs in a sandbox style game. Wait… did I just say that robots and mechs make Perpetuum an Eve Online clone?

Doesn’t it seem strange while the main tool / vehicles being very different still make the game a clone? Well in all fairness there really isn’t that much difference between piloted mechs and spaceships. Spaceships and mechs both can fit weapons, they both have engines and can fit different pieces of equipment. Both games have requirements around specific mechanics for fitting the equipment.

I have to say that equipping a robot or mech in Perpetuum is a lot like fitting a spaceship in Eve. But at the same time the robot and mechs make this game much more then a clone of Eve Online.


Eve Online has spaceships in 3 dimensional space while Perpetuum has robots/mechs in 2 dimensions on a planet with sloping terrain.

Perpetuum lets you control the robot/mechs with the classic (W,S,A,D) keys, but also have the option of using just the mouse or a combination of both.

Eve Online doesn’t have free movement control over the spaceship. Instead they use a system of set type paths of approach and orbit; which change by speed increase/decrease or direct user input by double clicking in space or changing the orbit distance.

These above environments and the control systems used to move around in them give the player two very different play styles and strategies for PVPVE.

Lore and background story between the two games are very different. Perpetuum is not as far in the future as Eve’s setting.

In Eve you are a clone pilot in a pod that is seeded into a ship. Wars have raged between the four different factions that are decedents of the long gone human race. Pilots work for different faction corporations.

In Perpetuum you are a human agent working on a space station in orbit around Earth with a remote connection to a nano bot called a Spark. The Spark gives you control of the different robots/mechs from three different factions of alien technology on a distance planet. Each agent works for an Earth based corporation working to bring much needed energy back to earth.

While certain aspects at first glance seem to make Perpetuum appear to be a direct clone of Eve Online, there are plenty of differences between the two games that set them apart. At the same time Eve refugees will find them selves in familiar game mechanics with refreshing game play changes.

I invite you to come and see for your self and check out Perpetuum
