Final Release !

The final update is now here ! The game is now ready to leave the Early Access !

It focuses on a "boss" mecha, the limited ammo, the lost logbooks and many optimizations/fixes.
There have been also a lot of adjustments in order to give you the smoother gameplay experience as possible.

The boss mecha

This mecha is different from the others. It is harder to destroy, it is stronger, and it uses special capacities.
If you beat it, you will not be able to hack it, but you will be well rewarded.




Limited ammo

Starting from this update, standard ammunition will become an important part of the game. As it will become limited, engaging combat will not be as straightforward as before.
Ammo can be either crafted or found inside lost chests.




Lost logbooks

Did you know what happened on this planet before your arrival? How can there be uncontrolled mechas? Why was this planet abandoned by humans?
Now is the time to get some answers. Previous humans left logbooks behind, explaining many details about their missions and how things evolved.

About This Game

Humanity is threatened. A deadly virus is rapidly spreading.
The particular flora of Arcania, a planet once used by humans for space colonization, may help in the creation of a cure. But the planet has been abandoned ever since working drones turned against humans.
A group of researchers has been sent to this planet to find a solution. You are one of them.
But as you arrived, your spaceship crashed…

Hack and command mechas

Mechas are wild and are used to living in the storm. You must fight some of them for your survival, but they are often stronger than you are.
Your best chance of survival is to hack some of those mechas and use them as allies to defeat the others.

Evolve

The more combats you win, the more fragments you earn. They can be used to evolve your mechas' strength and skills. But you can also find some during exploration.
Your character can also improve its capabilities.

The Storm

The weather is a major threat. You must deal with lightning strikes, tornadoes, and other elements in order to make your way through the storm. You will be able to activate old installations used to ionize the air and stop the storm within an area. Thankfully an old abandoned station that sits above the clouds provides good shelter.

The Spaceship

You have access to your spaceship early in the game, but you do not have enough fuel to leave the planet.
It is impossible to land in the storm, but once you have unlocked some weather controllers, you will be able to quickly travel across the map and save a lot of time.
