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
  • Terraforming - Conquer space by turning the land into a livable habitat

-Review subject to change as the game does-

Pre review TL;DR:
It STILL needs to be polished more
get it when it releases.....oh wait it did release.....check back in a year i guess


Pros:
+Exp and upgrade system is great

+The overall concepts are really nice

+The backrounds on the biomes and the lighting change in each biome looks good

+Tons of potential


Cons:
-Melee weapons are useless

-You only need 2 or 3 weapons of the 20 or so ingame, the boomerang, the volter, and maybe a boson blaster

-The landscape (Foreground) is a mish-mash of colors

-The structures offer little to no reward and can be very out of place

-Everything that isn't shield regen improving fighter armor is basically useless (From personal experience)

-Out of vehicle you always remain sluggish and cumbersome flying around, jetpack tiers don't increase any speed horizontally or vertically (iirc)

-Combat is sluggish feeling because of jetpacks being so slowy

-Exploration is slow and unrewarding, each biome is a reskin

-Last two biomes are completely unfinished

-Multiplayer is port based and buggy


-My review is still subject to change for better or worse if the game finally updates more-

This game is tragically suffering thanks to the Developer answering questions, and giving into extortion in the reviews section. (AKA being a good transparent developer)

Later on people started just using the reviews to extort their single ideas into the game, thinking that leaving crap messages on the reviews would elevate their little game idea, and get a prompt responce from the developer.

The dev stoped responding to the reviews, but a little too late, the reviews got more and more poisionus. A few troll ideas got repeated over and over to the point that people are believeing it as fact before even playing the game.

There are a few annoying points to every game. The points people are repeating are about "balancing" the game into their little idea of what "balanced" is. Most people would just go and make a "balance mod" and get a lot of fame.... this community decided to just burn the developer at the stake. (I think the balancing is just fine!!!)

99% of the bad reviews are from attention w hore trolls. Nothing more. Most of them have OVER 100+ hours of gameplay. (Yeah! The game must really F-king suck if they sunk 100+ hours into it Am-I-RIGHT? )

Here are some facts:
  • Game is 100% playable, and you can finish it in about 2 weeks of 8 hour days playing. (I timed my wife's second runthough, exactly 89 hours to complete on easy for an experianced player.)

  • Multiplayer works, and YES there are a lot of people populating them. (although a large ammount of them are locked like most multi-player games of this sort).

  • Co-Op with 3 of your friends is a blast!

  • Neat electrical system!! You get to actually plan out your base so you get the most out of your power sources.

  • LOTS of cool creatures with verry unique traits/attacks/funny habbits.

  • Lots of minerals, and things to craft with! Lots of things to craft!!! Lots of Decorations so you can really personalize your base.

  • Some of the bosses are from Terraria!!! The maker of terraria LOVES this game, and gave a blessing, and the rights to use Skeletron!!!

  • Great music and atmosphere.

  • Creative artists, the worlds are verry much ALIVE. and beutiful!

Development is going to be starting up again as soon as the Developer takes a well earned Holiday. All of the fun is not over!! This game is not done yet!!!!

The "This game is abandoned" troll, is an outright f-king lie.

This one of those games you hear about that open to Early Access and then drop the game as soon as they get some money from it. These developers should be blacklisted by companies as con artists. This game should be taken down from Steam.

Terrible game. Unpolished. no clear instructions. Horrible controls. Disgustingly random. So many unnecessary and pointless things. If I tryed I could come up with more bad things about this game but I don't even want to waste my time on this game.

The amount of unfinished game in this is a slap in the early adopters faces. There is a reason I have decided no more earlyy accesss games and this game is one of the reasons.

I've played Terraria for years now and have been searching for games alike to Terraria. Edge of Space is a great game to play if your a fan of Terraria or basically like sandbox games. Its a decent game, but other than the content in Edge of Space, I'd love to see the game Improve.

What I thought I was getting when I got the game was a game that played like terraria and starbound. However this is not the case. This game is a complete pile of trash. READ THE OTHER REVIEWS AS WELL. we aren't lying when we say this game isn't good

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.

I wanted to Like it Honestly.

But its not complete by anymeans an EA Title that should of stayed in EA till was complete when you purchase this there is no end the the devs never completed the other zones. Still has bugs Multiplayer has it issues the UI after extended play will lag forcing restart of the game.

Truely do Feel let down.

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 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.
