We have now chosen to release Entropy, taking it out of early access, as well as significantly lowering the price. It is our hope that this will bring in new players to give the online experience the game was meant to have.
For those who have not played the game in a while we have made quite a lot of changes to the startinging experience of the game. We recommend that you start a new character to experience it, and to make it easier to get into the game. We have given all players an extra account slot so you can do this without having to delete one of your older accounts.
In terms of future support, we can promise that we will try to keep the servers up for as long as there is any player activity, and whatever money we make from sales will go into updating the game.
After all attempts to fix Entropy gameplay and long internal discussions, we’ve decided to change development focus. Hold your horses! We are NOT abandoning Entropy, just shifting priorities and and internal resources.
There are many reasons to do it. First of all, we all came to the conclusion that space games are either too boring, or either too complex for the average player. Secondly, we now feel that the gaming industry is changing thanks to Virtual Reality helmets. And finally, let’s be honest, economy and trading materials are not trendy anymore in games.
Plus, we want you to be more involved with your character. We want you to develop him/her and grow a connection with him/her. The brand new Story Missions introduced in the latest patch were only the first steps.
Today, we are proudly announcing to you, dear Entropy players, that we are now currently developing a brand new feature for your favorite game: Night Life!
Next Gen Dating Simulator
Did you ever dream about a dating simulator where you can meet beautiful alien girls? “Night Life” is a all about that. Your character can now seduce sexy alien girls in any bar in the system. Talk to her, flirt, lie, drink cocktails and even dance together.
Night Life will also add a bunch of new social RPG skills to your character: Barter, Persuasion, Charisma… Finishing the solo story missions will allow you to gain experience to augment them and shape your character to your own desires: Will you make a Womanizer? A faithful husband? Yes, you read the right word. Marriage will also be added to the game.
To cater for every taste, many beautiful alien girls will available at launch, you will find them in all bars on all space stations.
A side note for the girls, as we cherish you as players, you will be able to flirt with alien males. Or females, actually. You can do whatever you want with your social life as we want to make Night Life the most developed, realistic, involving sci-fi dating simulator on the market.
Virtual Reality is the next big hit. You know it, we know it! And we have been tinkering with a VR dev-kit for a while now. Entropy will been ported on VR platforms to give you me most immersive sci-fi dating simulator ever.
At some point, you can expect space fight in VR too, but later: as I said, we are now focusing on a deeper, more personal Entropy).
So, yes, Entropy Night’s Life feature will bring Entropy to the next level, to, VR, to the future of gaming!
Entropy’s Night Life is, as you can imagine, a big new feature, with a lot of challenges to overcome. We should warn you that updates on Entropy will be scarce in the months to come as the team will be mainly dedicated to “Night Life” development.
Entropy’s Night Life is planned to be released in a year from now, on 1st April 2017.
Thank you for your interest and continuous support! Entropy team
We just released live update. There is only one new feature and multiple bug fixes and improvements.
Story Episode 1
Entropy has a story which will tell you important things about game world and will help you to understand it. So we added the first sequence of story missions in this update and will continue adding them. Episode 1 will continue tutorial story line, so you will find new missions only if you completed tutorial.
New mission at station is available now. If player got reputation value for one of the factions below -500 points, this faction could add station mission for player's head (only in faction stations).
Bounty hunting mission is available at all stations of the faction
If player get this mission, player have to kill target for 24 hours

Only one bounty hunting misson can be generated within 24 hours
We just released new live update and here is the short list of changes:
Police forces patrol star systems controlled by the faction now and they will not tolerate any crime. Players can attack anyone in the game, but consiquences will be different depending on system type:
In green systems, if victim was a non hostile ship, aggressor will be chased by the nearest patrol;
In yellow systems it is safe to attack ships from other factions;
In red systems you can do anything you want!
Police patrol will ask player to pay monetary fine, and if rejected, they will attack. All crimes will be taken into account and accumulated, so player have to pay once for all previous crimes.
Game Size Reduction
We have done serious optimization of game resources and now installation size is about 4.5Gb instead of 15Gb.
We rebalanced ship cargo capacity of all ships to differentiate them more.
First pass of Russian translation is finished and is available for testing. It is incomplete right now and will be updated. We also working on Norwegian translation and will add more languages later.
Game client upgraded to latest version of Unity and Direct X 11 support added.

Improved UI fonts (for example larger font is used for Chat tabs);
Container marker is visible only in ship sensor range;
Fixed multiple bugs related to AI (improved stability and performance).
