Vad utvecklarna har att säga:

Varför Early Access?

“We wanted to get our game in the hands of as many people as possible, as soon as possible. We are a tiny team with no budget, so Early Access will allow us to think longer-term, and ultimately deliver a better game.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until we finish the content we have planned for the 1.0 release. We can't give you an ETA at this point, as we're still quite far from being finished.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have more content, a complete, satisfying narrative and less bugs. What we have in the current Early Access build is a solid foundation, but now our job is to expand on that content in order to finish the game. At some point between now and release, we are also planning on implementing online co-op multiplayer.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version of Signs of Life is very playable and stable. What we have now is a solid experience, although it has only a portion of the planned total content.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We have no plans to change the price between now and release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“In any way we can. We're active on the Steam forums, and we love getting feedback from the community. The more you guys get involved and tell us what we're doing wrong the better the game is sure to get. We take criticism well, so don't be shy =)”

Om spelet

Signs of Life is a sci-fi survival sandbox platformer with a combination of procedurally generated and hand-crafted content. You'll explore mysterious locations, Mine blocks for resources, and meet strange (and some familiar) creatures, some of which don't even want to kill you and eat your corpse. Along the way, you'll be able to craft armor, weapons, gadgets and more to assist you in surviving in an inhospitable environment.

Story

Sensing that an apocalyptic war was imminent, the United Nations executed a last ditch plan to save what they could of the human race. 2 crafts were launched, a massive colony ship called the Hephaestus and a smaller, faster scout ship called the Hermes. The destination was a recently discovered earth-like planet with the potential to harbor life located roughly 18 light years away. The Hermes reached the planet first in order to establish a presence in anticipation of the arrival of the Hephaestus.

4 years later, as the Hephaestus approached its destination a faint signal was detected from a nearby asteroid. Against their better judgement, the crew of the Hephaestus decided to investigate, and in doing so set in motion a chain of events that would ultimately lead to their destruction.

The good news is, you managed to survive by hitching a ride on a small escape pod just in the nick of time. The bad news is, everyone you knew and loved is dead, you have nothing but the clothes on your back, a standard issue multi-function wrist laser and a faulty artificial intelligence companion named AGIS. Oh, and the human race is probably doomed.

Probably.

Features

  • An expansive world with procedurally generated and hand-crafted content.
  • A bunch of weird alien creatures.
  • Some familiar creatures.
  • Chickens.
  • Mining, hunting, gathering.
  • Gobs of ores, materials and animal organs you can use to...
  • Craft all kinds of weapons, armor, gadgets, furniture, etc.
  • A bit of story and lore to hold the whole thing together.
  • Eggs.

Current State of Development

Signs of Life is currently in Alpha. We feel like we've put together a fun, satisfying experience that will allow us to get wider feedback while we complete the rest of the game.

Right now our first priority is making sure that the content we have in-game is as bug-free, balanced, polished and fun as possible based on feedback from you folks. Our second priority is working on the co-op online multiplayer, which we have been working on since day one, but we don't feel is ready for prime time. In addition to those priorities, we'll be adding content to the game regularly as we finish fleshing out the game. We have a significant prologue/tutorial planned, as well as significant content beyond what is currently playable, so the sooner you get involved the more of an effect you'll have on the final game.

We are still very much in development, and we would like you to join us in shaping the game from here on out. Your feedback is vital to us, so don't be shy =)

Caveats/Issues

  • Multiplayer is not yet implemented, but we have been working on it since the beginning and it is our next major milestone.
  • Some sound effects are missing, but we are actively working on filling them in.

TL;DR: SoL is one of the best Sandbox games out there if you are willing to put the time into it, and I can not recommend it more if you are into that genre.

-----
Signs of Life is a breath of fresh air (for me, at least) in the survival-sandbox genre. Most games in said genre tend to visually resemble eachother, or play identically (i.e. make a crafting table, then furnace, etc...).
SoL manages to differentiate itself from the lot, mostly thanks to it's (although minor) storyline and lore.
Sure, it has pickaxes, mining, 2D voxel worlds and the likes, but it offers much more than the run-of-the-mill sandbox game.

Having played for a good couple of hours now, I've made it to the point where I've acquired the Level 2 Access Card, and have explored the 4 structures that I've found (I'm certain there are more that I've yet to discover), and am starting to get a nice collection of gadgets, and technologically advanced items.

However, at multiple points during my current playthrough, I started getting afraid that I might have gone through all of the content, due to the fact that I had no new recipes that seemed interesting, nor could find anything of interest that I had access to either. Though, I will admit that when I 'did' discover new recipes and the likes, I couldn't help but pull a massive smile, knowing that my playthrough wouldn't be done anytime soon.

In it's current state, the game has huge amounts of content (most of which I haven't even discovered yet), and quite a bit of potential. I'm hoping that the content shown on the trailer will be soon added -if not already-, as I'd love to find larger bases, ruins, and more content to explore.

SoL is by far one of my favourite games in the sandbox genre, and could easily compete with, or even surpass games like Edge of Space, Starbound or Terraria, if enough work is put into it in the coming months of it's development.
