Not gone, but a lot has been going on (That Ryhmes...)

Hey everyone. I know it's been quite a some time since we have posted or patched the game.

It's been a very complex ride after the release, and I will go more into it in another post.

What I wanted to get out there was that we are still alive and we have not just abandoned you, but there were logistical things that had to take priority.

In my next post I will ellaberate on that more directly, as I can not at the moment. But to say the least, please bare with us.

About This Game

Suit up as an operative of the Ark Corporation, sent to the farthest reaches of the universe in search of habitable planets to terraform. However, after the long space journey you awaken from cryosleep to find that your ship has gone way off course and is disabled near a strange new world. With no choice but to descend to the surface and figure out how to survive long enough to complete your mission, you step into the escape pod.

Along the way you’ll gather resources to craft armor, weapons, facilities, and vehicles to help you explore the world and conquer its aggressive inhabitants. Your base of operations will evolve from a few basic facilities exposed to the elements into a hardened fortress full of advanced technologies that let you accomplish amazing improvements to your equipment and alter the environment itself.

Be careful, though; almost everything down there wants to kill you, including fierce laser space sharks, artillery-toting polar bears, wickedly quick jetpack penguins, and even crazier horrors. Out on the Edge of Space, you must adapt or you die. Good luck, ArkCo Operative!

Key Features

  • Open World Exploration– Dynamically-generated 2D sandbox set in the deepest recesses of space, explore randomly generated caverns, wormhole anomalies and dive deeper into the planet to discover valuable resources and other rare phenomenon.
  • Crazy Creatures – Hordes of enemies and epic bosses ranging from Artillabears, squid pandas, jetpack space penguins, and laser space sharks; not to mention epic bosses like DJ Penguin and Omegatron
  • Cooperative Exploration – Engrossing gameplay, built from the ground up, to support multiplayer focusing on cooperative exploration and combat with team-based tactics.
  • Advanced Crafting System - Using the power of science, craft advanced technology for weapons, gear and base constructions from basic resources
  • Loads of Armor – Ranging from stat boosting battle armor to quirky vanity costumes, craft armor to survive the changing environmental conditions and specialize in different aspects of mining, exploration, and combat.
  • Weapons – Create a wide-variety of dynamically generated weapons ranging from guided rocket launchers to Experimental Gauss Rifles and discover new advanced weaponry to expand your arsenal.
  • Research System – A new research system allows players more freedom to discover new areas of technology in exploration, combat, base building, and much more.
  • Command Center Management – Establish your central base of operation by creating the ultimate Command Center customized with defensive turrets, hangers and repair drones. Make improvements to protect yourself from the constant environmental changes like radiation storms and other anomalies.
  • PIOS (Power Input Output Systems) – A simple drag and drop tool, letting you design electrical systems as basic as powering a light or as complex as creating your own logic gates.
  • Pets – Create and collect pets that assist you on your epic exploration of space by granting defensive, offensive, or exploration perks.
  • Anomalies - Random world events both dangerous and helpful
  • Vehicles - Craft items from hover boards to massive mechs to safely explore the dangerous world

Regretful and disappointed.
I have about eighty-four hours invested into Edge of space. (with about one third of my time in pre-release, over 404 hours in Terraria in comparison). It was exhilarating to see a game with the science-fiction setting in the genre. I wanted to like this game, but it's been a letdown overall. Exploration and expansion become quite hindered by your armor and weapons. Crafting remains over-complex and tedious. It is all too easy to sink hours looking for resources that are a little -too- scarce. Items take sometimes a half-dozen ingredients to make (which themselves take several crafting stations). In comparison to Terraria, most items take three or fewer (excluding endgame content). This game is an example of a great premise bogged down by poor development. This is one of the few games I keep trying every so often to see if they've fixed it, and so far they haven't. I'm not yet at the point where I wish I could trade or return it, but I'm not too far from that either.

What a waste of 7 dollars. Don't buy this game. Too complicated, just the TINIEST enemies are too overpowered, and REALLY confusing crafting.

Game is hella dead.

Shame, really, because I did find a lot of it intriguing. Half of it was okay. But not even a -75% summer sale is worth the investment. The game is as unfinished as it gets.

Dev posted in April that they'd post something soon. Lol.

I haven't gotten very far into the game and I would already buy it twice over it's a great game I would most certainly recomend it to anyone who likes games with storylines and laser sharks however it is definetly a little lonely on single player and is much funner with other people you know like you siblings and such. But over all it's a very good game.

Permabanned on forums for pointing out, the devs pushed out beta updates, which added content, but locked that content behind drops that were unattainable, so noone could test said new content, this was about a year ago.
Since then they pushed to release and have since bailed, even the Community manager moved to pastures new, while the dev team hire themselves out as 3rd party coders (sorry that should probably read as 3rd rate coders).

Full release still has a lot of unfinished content, and serious game breaking bugs, esp where multiplayer is concerned, so far the devs have blamed " logistical things" for their abscence, with a more detailed explanation forthcoming...but coming up for two months later and those things are still restricting them, but doesnt stop them playing a lot of Overwatch...go figure.

One off the best examples of why you should not buy Early Access games. What the other reviuwers say is true. Dont buy early access.

Don't touch this game with a barge pole. There are too many things to list that are broken; while I can accept this with early release game, this title has been released as finished.
I write this review after I had been waiting for an update/patch to arrive, hoping it would transform the game in to something I always hoped it would be. Approaching half a year later, with very little from the developers, it's time I made sure others don't make the same mistake I did, purchasing this game.

Save your money buy Terraria, which coincidentally has just received another great update.

This game looked like Terraria so I bought it hoping it would be just as fun. Long story short, It isn't.

Pre-Release Review
Posted: June 17
This is a truly horrible game. I bought it in the very beginning when it was first released and soon realized that it was not ready to play. I walked away from it for a good several months and then tried again, same deal. Then I waited about a year and tried again, still ♥♥♥♥♥♥. I finally tried it again a few months ago and found that it was no longer in beta and still just a horrible piece of ♥♥♥♥ game. Do not buy.

Game had a lot of potential but it was rushed to 1.0 then apparently abandoned. Lots of unfinished features and bugs. If the developers ever come back I'll reconsider this review but until then, play Terraria or Starbound where you can get some developer support.
