What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Involving the community throughout development as early as possible is crucial to ensuring that the final game is the best it can be. Early access gives me the ability to do just that. As an open-world survival game I have seen the value that such a process has added to similar games of the genre. Therefore, Early Access seems like the best approach to creating Life Not Supported - for both the players and the developer.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Making Life Not Supported the best version of the game it can be takes priority over aiming for an arbitrary date or time. However, the current rough estimate puts the full release at ~Q4 2024. This of course, is likely to change based on community feedback and requests.”

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

“The Early Access version of Life Not Supported introduces a solid foundation of the game I am trying to make. There are of course planned features, but with your guidance we can refine the roadmap to prioritise and add features that the community want.
The current plan for the full release is to have the following features:
• A full range of tiles and objects to craft and place.
• The ability to create airlocked spaces.
• More biomes with greater variety of debris and crafting recipes.
• More quality-of-life features as and when suggested
• Support for modding and basic modding tools if there's enough demand
The full roadmap is visible on the store page and on Trello via my website”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of Life Not Supported is a solid foundation for the rest of the game to built upon. The current state includes (but not limited to) the following features:
• Online Co-op
• Scavenging
• Crafting
• Base Building
• Survival
• Ship Physics
• Ingame bug reporting and suggestion tool
All content should be considered work in progress and expect content and bug fixing updates throughout Early Access.”

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

“There is no plan to increase the price or heavily discount the game during Early Access.”

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

“The community is at the centre of development of any good game, especially in this genre. As such, the major decisions during development will be communicated and discussed within the Steam Community forum as well as the Life Not Supported specific Discord. This is also a public space for players to discuss changes that they want in the game - whether it be alterations to current design, completely new suggestions to be implemented, or bugs that they have encountered.
One major feature that has been added due to community demand is Online Co-op, which was originally planned much later in development but has been in the game now since the early access launch.”

About This Game

Life Not Supported is a space-survival game set in orbit of a far away planet - a possible new location for civilisation. Disaster struck, of unknown origin, and you are the lone survivor tethered to what's left of your ship. Gather nearby debris and scramble together a new vessel with your trusty roll of duct tape, in an attempt to survive the harsh realities of space. Maybe then you'll live long enough to uncover the truth behind the ships malfunction...

Tether yourself in and float into the void to gather precious resources as they drift on by. Secure air tanks to your "ship" with tape in an attempt to navigate and find different and more useful objects.

Use what you have scavenged to cobble together platforms and walls to improve the size and function of your new home. It might not look like much, but a solid structure is the difference between living and dying out here.

Fill up your Spacesuit Ingestion Pipe (SIP) Container, melt ice to quench your thirst, and take up space-botany in an attempt to survive this inhospitable vacuum you now call home. Don't forget to keep an eye on your O2 supply, there should be some spare tanks around here somewhere...

Explore the various belts that orbit this strange planet, maybe you can piece together what happened to the ship and the crew...

List of Current Features

  • Survive a harsh space environment alone or with friends.
  • Craft crucial tools to aid in your attempt to take on the void.
  • Build a structure than can both withstand the asteroid showers and function as a home.
  • Decorate your home with objects you find floating by.
  • Explore 10 biomes over two belts (with more coming soon).
  • Begin discovering the mystery surrounding your perilous situation.
  • Enjoy the ever evolving nature of an early access game, that has enjoyed over 30 updates/patches since launch (June 26th 2023) with no sign of slowing down!
