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

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.

Product received for free
I enjoy this game a lot, my standards were set low since i already had terraria and starbound, but i really like Edge of Space, it has an Xp element that i like, a nice detailed yet still stylized look and i have had no problems with it other than a simple fix error on install.
My main complaint is something that the developers cant really fix, nobody is hosting servers, as far as i could see, which is a shame, since this game is loads of fun and with the Xp system, i think it could last longer than terraria or starbound as time goes on.
I'd say buy it if you have the money and want it, the steam sales are even better, but i think the game is worth every cent, i only wish i had got the special edition just to send what little extra support i could.

P.S. i got the game as a gift, and looking back on it, i should have bought it a long time ago for myself.

The Devs decided to abandon this before finishing it. Granted, I played it quite a bit, but there's no ending. It just sort of stops.

I recommend this game because it's not like others where when you beat the last boss it's over. You have unlock new weapons over time and it's really not a hard grind. It's really fun have been playing it for almost 3 days straight now and the fun hasn't decreased.

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.

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.

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 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.
