What the developers have to say:

“Entropy is a sandbox science fiction MMOG with a strong focus on freeform gameplay and large-scale space combat, and is available right now for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Set in a true open-world sandbox, Entropy is an ambitious entry into the era of community-driven projects, where players will help decide the game’s development direction, helping to build the definitive sci-fi MMO experience.

The Early Access release of Entropy sees us launch with a strong foundation of features, including incredible multiplayer space combat, where each instance can hold more than a hundred simultaneous players all battling for supremacy, and a player-driven trading system, where both trading stations and players will determine the state of the economy. Add to this, mining, salvaging and exploration (of over a hundred explorable systems), as well as a developing dynamic mission system, and you have a game with scale, ambition, and the desire to build a community who wish to develop the best experience possible.

We’ll be releasing updates approximately every week, with a major update being delivered roughly every month. As an Alpha build, there will be some bugs, and features that are being fleshed out further or are yet to be included, so bear that in mind. However, we want our community to be vocal, creative and passionate, so please get involved in the discussion on the Entropy Steam Community pages and help us create the definitive MMO experience.”

About This Game

Entropy has gone through some big changes because of feedback from early access players, and is not very playable in its current form. Unless you like following the development of a game, you probably want to wait before you purchase the game.

Entropy is an open-universe science fiction MMO with a strong focus on freeform gameplay and large-scale space combat. Explore a hostile galaxy filled with over a hundred solar systems, each completely explorable, where you can hunt, trade, mine and salvage in order to survive. In Entropy, you can play the way you want, and take part in shaping a universe where you, the players, are in control.

Key features

  • Massively multiplayer Space Combat
    Entropy finally delivers a true dogfighting experience in an MMO environment. Experience the thrill of skill-based combat set against a massively multiplayer arena, where up to a hundred simultaneous players per instance can fight for supremacy.

  • Dynamic Trade
    Economics is the engine that drives the universe of Entropy, and a good knowledge of supply and demand can make you a fortune. Whether you play the market and trade between different stations, transporting goods across star systems crawling with pirates, mine rich asteroids or loot ancient relics, there are many routes to riches.

  • Customisation
    A deep character development system allows you to customize yours skills and ship modules to be the best possible pilot in the role that you want to play. Offensive, defensive and passive abilities allow you to customise your approach to combat and survival. Add to this a deep avatar creator with infinite variations, and you have a game intent on making each player unique and specialised.

  • Exploration
    Entropy already has 120 explorable star systems that can be interacted with on three different gameplay levels. The Galaxy map allows you to plot routes across the galaxy, through safe or hostile territory. The System map is where you travel between locations, hunt down players with valuable loot, and discover Sectors containing rich mining fields and ancient derelicts. These Sectors are the 3D levels in which the action will take place. Many sectors are permanent features of a system, but there are also dynamic Sectors that will only appear through persistent exploration.

    Entropy is a true MMO - not just an arena shooter or a single-player game with added online functionality. You can interact with thousands of other players - some friendly, many hostile. Your actions will shape and influence the persistent universe.

Early Access Review
considering Ursa, Russian,Gatsu and myself have been the only players left from release and have done a RIDICULOUS amount of testing and bug reporting, yea something should be given to the remaining dedicated players since THEY PAID TO TEST YOUR GAME FOR YOU ARTPLANT i for one am done, theres nothing left with any meaning in the game.

-Mining(worthless just go to barrums buy wat u need)
-Salvage(non-existent :/ great call btw devs)
-Refining/Crafting(obviously not done yet so no judgement other than NOT DONE YET)
-Combat(pull>turn>pewpew wow must have been sooooo hard to program that)
-Trade(total ♥♥♥♥in waste of time just give yourself infinite creds with the exploit)
-Player Economy(been over year guys absolutely none other than an expensive repair bill for supporting who? the npcs?)
-PVP(current 30day avg 2.9 so yea, ursa vs russian)
-Mods(all broken & easily exploited)
-Ships(not a single balance or new ship since release)
-Map(now we have an incredibly small "3d" map, thx for that)

The forums are literally more fun and exciting as well as much more active than the game itself, whats that say for your gameplay artplant? Anyway im done ranting, best of luck guys

Early Access Review
Abandoned.

I bought this game about 2 years ago because it looked like a great Freelancer-esque game and it was. Things seemed like they were developing nicely, but now it's dead in the water.

One big debate was a 2d map travel system (which you don't see in the videos except for 2 seconds) which was voted out for full 3d by the users. This took some development time away from the game and apparently they lost motivation to work on the game and, by the Devs own admission, they thought about scrapping the game altogether. Over a month ago they said they would continue work on the game with a smaller team but haven't released any updates or intention in the forums. It's been over half a year since an actual game update was released. Current game is bug ridden and largely unplayable plus has only a handful of players (literally, I think five people play the game).

So much potential, but as of now it's all lost. DO NOT BUY.
