Update #16: Tweaking time (QoL)

Patch Notes (version 1.07.7):

* Added separate icons for the current time mode, pause, 1x and 2x time in the top-left menu, besides the time-dial.

* Clicking on these time icons will trigger the appropriate time mode. The current method; [Spacebar] to cycle through pause/1x/2x modes, will remain as is for those who prefer less clicks.

* When entering menus where time is paused, the game will remember your previous time mode. When you exit menus, it will no longer force 1x resume, but it will select the previous time mode.

Thank you for playing and providing feedback. If you enjoy the game, please leave a review to support me.

About This Game

Set on a distant uncharted & hostile planet, where descendants of a crashed colony ship endure the harsh wasteland while hoping for salvation.

However, decades have passed without contact from the fleet and skirmishes between different factions over limited resources have escalated.

A full blown war of conquest looms on the horizon that could risk humanity's fragile existence on this harsh new world.

As the chaos approaches, you take the role as the leader of a rag-tag bunch of scavengers / mercenaries. Your goal is to scavenge, trade, sabotage, hunt, fight and help conquer your way to fame and glory.

Along the journey, you will meet allies that will join in the struggle to survive the wasteland, and perhaps together, you can unravel the mystery on the origins of the colony and change the fate of all those who call this barren world home.


  • A world where your choices matters as the factions try to survive and wage wars of conquest.

  • A highly dynamic economic simulation ensures not only your actions carry consequences and present new opportunities, but also the actions of various NPCs.

  • Competitive gameplay that involves other free roaming NPC scavengers that fulfill the same role as the player. They can trade, scavenge resources, take on missions, and fight hostile raiders or xenos. Competition can be fierce, so beware!

  • Mercenary contracts that carry consequences. Be it clearing raiders for a faction to help their economy grow, or sabotage their enemy's outposts to cripple their war capability.

  • Recruit and equip your squad with many different weapons, each providing a unique balance and tactical options. Train their combat skills as they gain levels, and specialize them further with a selection of many perks.

  • Hunt the xenobeasts on this hostile world and use their skin, carapace, and organs in crafting useful items and armor.

  • A sandbox that is also character & story-driven, with an sci-fi story themed on loss, duty and personal responsibility, along with side-quests and random encounters.
