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
Oh look, my first review.

I doubt even going F2P would revitalize this game. The original concept behind Entropy still holds some merit but in the two years I've owned it the development has been so clunky and poorly planned that every other update for the past few months seems to have been the introduction of a half working totally unecessary feature and the rearranging of the UI, and said updates few and far between.

It's like in 2013 they had a sizable development team churning out a decent potential-riddled game but now it seems as though the secondary texture artist and the worst programmer of the bunch are the only two left in the studio trying to do the job of an entire dev team. Fixing of the most fundamental issues of grandiose lag, game crashes and an economy comparable to buying US mansions with Indian rupees go either ignored or unknown and I doubt building a pyramid of bugged features atop a foundation so bugged it's literally a writhing mass of spiders and stick insects is a good omen for the future of the game.

Updates are increasingly rare, any worthy updates will be massively overshadowed by the amount of negative reviews accumulated over time thanks to the barren wasteland that is progress in this game and I doubt anybody would purchase it. Eventually Entropy will sink to the dark depths of Steam hell and probably finally be removed from the store and sit in the hard drive of somebody's abandoned desk PC collecting metaphorical dust for the next 80 years.

Only way you guys will save the game now is to go free-to-play.... i noticed new updates that came out of no where... You ran off all your players.. and there are too many negative reviews for people to try to buy the game. that and the 11 players in the servers every day isnt exactley a community... So free to play is the only way you guys have even a shot now. too late on the updates and too much lack of interaction with your player base so we would know what was going on. I'm a founder btw. So i soaked cash into this game

Early Access Review
Game at first sucked me in DEEP, bought the founder pack and 3 other copies for close friends. so put my share of money into it. BUT DO NOT BUY! unless you like a game that is developed by people whom do not care about the people who payed to get this founder pack and put time and lots of money hoping every month that the developers would actually do an update. game was abandoned, then late 4th quarter of 2015 ENTROPY HAS NEW UPDATES!!! well kinda,

the new game basicly wiped out my old game, all my ships ect. try to load in and wouldnt you know it your stuck at the station with your prevoius character and cannout undock..... must be a bug.

so my final hope was to create a new character and start all over again, once i loaded in the ship kept spining in circles..... no control ..... must be a bug......

so i went from having around 100 mil in ships and moduels to getting all that wiped and no refund ect.

so if you happen to get this game please do your self a favor and try not to cry after you dumped 100 bucks and got nothing... good scam guys way to really push your potential customers to other games that took your idea and made it work........
