What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I chose Early Access to gather feedback from the community to help push the game further into a more polished state, to help bring out a polished, content-packed full release. This Early Access copy does not represent the final product. You will experience bugs that I intend to kill, and so on. You've been warned. If you feel let-down with the current state of the game, please feel free to get in contact with me and address any glaring issues you see with the game, and I will happily listen. I encourage you to refund if you feel let-down as well. No hard feelings.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“My intentions are to be in Early Access for around a year, give or take a little, as I am currently a high school student (Junior).”

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

“In the game world, there are currently 2 decently sized islands. In the full release I plan to have around 8 islands for exploration, more content, such as guns, food, ships to fly, NPCs, etc.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“If I were to give a percentage, I'd say around 14%. I started development in August 2015.”

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

“The price will be low upon Early Access launch, and may or may not rise over the course of Early Access”

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

“I do monthly updates on the game's discussion Steam page.”

Rewrite Progress: AI Sneak Peek



These are the new soldiers. They are passive until you either: mine too many resources, or shoot them, if you do either of those, a soldier alerts all soldiers within a certain radius, allowing all of them to gang up on you.

It's a little bit goofy and there isn't a lot of "game" there yet, so just sit tight and wait until this game makes progress.
I bought it on the day it released and I can proudly say that this dev is working on his title and doesn't throw it away just becasue it was garbage at first.
(seriously thoug, the release version was ♥♥♥♥, there was nothing there XD)

I'll follow this games progress until it is finally the game I imagine it to be (I my self have no idea what this game will be one day yet, but I'll keep thinking until I have one :D)

Keep up the good work, you're making a lot of progress :)

Unless using a secure delete, I've never in decades in the field seen a drive wiped where a recovery program could not recover some files. Contrary to the claims there are also plenty that can pull file paths and folders full of files as well (some other commenter even showed examples (personally I like GetDataBack)).

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT OR FROM THIS DEVELOPER!

There is nothing to do. I started the game in single person and there is no tutorial. I just walk around with some people who dont shoot at me until im dead and killed by something that does shoot at me with some pea shooter rifle and pistol that has the most basic sci-fi sound ever, No mmo aspect to it no explanation of anything. Even though i got it for a dollar i feel robbed.

There seems to be a trend of unfinished games by single developers that abuse people's trust, furthermore, the developer is rude to his customers offering constructive criticism. Do NOT feed this type of behaviour with your hard-earned money!

TLDR; Stay away from this.

Early Access Review
Posted: April 29
This is the 3rd version of this review, that's how shaky this game's development is...

Not going to recite the history, but basically I went from backing the dev but not recommending the game due to cancelled development, to then recommending it when he informed me it was back on, to now when I can no longer recommend the game for SO many reasons

Now this game is in Early Access I know, so of course it's not going to be full

But the content in this game is so lacking that it should be a F2P...

On top of that, the Dev talked about adding VR support when there is literally nothing to do, this shows to me poor planning and priorities

To top it all off, I only just read that the Dev is now starting work on another game, and not only that but of a completely different style to this one

Now if that doesn't scream 'commitment issues' then I don't know what does

I'm sorry to have to say this, but judging by how this is all going, I cannot recommend this game at all, and would advise caution with any of the Dev's work in the future

Also an apology to Bryne for seeing the truth in all of this from the start

I'm only glad I didn't pay for this game, but to all those that did, I hope you get a refund soon

A Futuristic Open World Survival Shooter
https://youtu.be/zdqREirJBlU
+ Very vivid colors throughout the environment
+ Merchants / Shops where you can buy new gear, weapons, and a spaceship
+ Large Interesting map that is fun to explore for a short while

This game is in Early Access so don't take these too seriously
- Everything is far too bright and sometimes hard to look at
- A huge portion of the map is covered in "toxic gas" which will kill you, and no context to why it's there
- Not a whole lot of content at the moment
- Many things are untextured (looks to be a very early prototype build / concept)
- The combat / AI is severely lacking
- There is a multiplayer option but no servers available

~ I feel like the developer should have waited a few more months to flesh out the game before releasing it on Steam in Early Access.

In short. There is no gameplay. Guns are not working. There is litterally nothing to do. tutorial is not working and.. well I could go on but the bottom line is. this game should never have been in early access in its current state.

It's a no, as of right now. I understand that the game just came out today. However, in it's current state, there is really no incentive to play the game. It is a very pretty game and it is definatley unique, but as someone who is very familiar with these types of games, this is one to stay away from right now. It amazes me that one person made it and for that I give them so much praise, however, as a gamer, I say wait til more is inputed into the game and it becomes more of what we would expect from a game like this. I sincerely hope that this game goes places, it has SO much potential and I can't wait to see it grow. I will continue to play it while hoping that I can watch it grow. Purchase it if you wish, but knowing how most gamers are, I can say that alot will not enjoy it in it's current state. I hope to update this review in the near future.

Honestly it's pretty bad in it's current state. I mean, it could be fun, I guess, but right now it's pretty much unplayable.
