What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe the best games include the community from the start. The earlier you are able to be a part of the process, the faster we hear what you want and are able to make the best game possible. You can see our plans, our progress, our successes and our failures. By involving you in the development process, and iterating openly on your feedback, we hope to build an amazing experience for you.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We can't accurately predict how long Early Access will take. We expect at least approximately one to two years, and potentially more.”

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

“Throughout Early Access, we will release a sequence of updates that add new content to the game. Initially, you will only be able to play in the starting zone and then the surrounding areas. Future updates will add new areas, tools, buildings, vehicles, biomes, and story areas. Bugs will be steadily reduced and performance steadily increased.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are currently in the Pre-Alpha phase. This means that we are building prototypes for the demo and still building out core functionality that we want to include before going into Early Access. Performance (frame rate) is poor relative to what we want in the finished game as well as variety of flora and fauna. See the "About This Game" section for more information about what features are implemented so far.”

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

“We plan to gradually increase the price of Project Canopy as we ship new content and features.”

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

“Please join us in developing Project Canopy. You can follow our progress on Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, the Steam Community, and the Project Canopy Blog. Receive notifications of major update releases by signing up to the SocksandGoats Newsletter on our website. We will be taking feedback from our community through Twitter, Discord, YouTube, and eventually an in-game feedback tool. You will be able to see our tasks being tracked as well as our roadmap.”

About This Game

Project Canopy is a first person sci-fi survival adventure set in an alien jungle planet. Explore among the massive trees, plants and terrain to see what the jungle holds inside.

All details are subject to change as this game will evolve over time based on feedback from the community.

Climb into the expansive Canopy

You are sent to conduct scientific research, but soon learn more is going on. The planet is completely covered in a layer of vegetation so thick that we have no way of detecting what lies beneath the Canopy. Build, craft and harvest resources to survive in this hostile environment.
You are on your own.
The Canopy awaits.

Harvest, Craft, and Survive

After landing in your Drop Pod, look around for food, water, minerals to start building the equipment you need to survive and explore. Collect resources from plants, animals and more to find what you need. Craft a better suit, tools, lights, buildings, and vehicles. Explore both below and above to find more advanced and rare materials, flora and fauna.

Build Habitats Designed for the Canopy

Build bases on the jungle floor or high up into the trees. Construct bridges between your buildings so you don't have to venture to the dangerous jungle floor. Choose different layouts to maximize efficiency or simply design your dream base. Your can have buildings that store resources, hold your vehicles, and replenish your oxygen, so you're ready for another trek into the jungle.

Discover the Mystery

Why were you sent here? What do we want with this planet? These questions and more will be answered in the story once it's implemented

Fear the Night

As the light fades in the Canopy, fauna and flora alike tend to change. The more dangerous predators come out. The flora become more beautiful, but also more aggressive. This place can be quite unforgiving if you dare to venture out into the darkness.

Open Development

Get updates through our DevLogs on YouTube, newsletter on our website, or chat with us on Discord. You can also follow along with the tasks we are working on and see our roadmap. Our development is open so you can see our successes and failures. We want to use both to build the best game possible and we hope you'll join us along for the ride.

About the Team

Hello, I am Joshua Torres, and I started SocksandGoats Studios as a solo indie dev from Washington, USA because I wanted to build a team to create my dream game. I started planning out Project Canopy back in early 2019 and started development in early 2020. Since then I've worked with artists, musicians, and programmers to get help along the way. As we get more support, I hope to build the team by bringing more artists and programmers on full-time to create the best game possible. If you are an artist or game dev and want to contribute, feel free to reach out in the community discord as we have others that are contributing as well.
