What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“For a large system-driven game like Lightyear Frontier community involvement is a must, and we want to get our game into the hands of our players as early as possible. While we have a long-term plan for the game, community feedback will help us prioritize and iterate on the game’s features until the gameplay is just right.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our current plan is to spend about a year and a half in Early Access, but we also embrace the fact that plans can and will change the moment we start getting feedback. Our primary goal is to keep the updates coming at a steady pace and reach full release once our players agree the game is ready.”

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

“The Early Access version represents only a portion of the full game. The full game will feature several new environments, plants, resources, animals, and hazards, as well as several new upgrade tiers, modules, and tools for the mech. The game’s story will also expand during Early Access, with only the beginning of the first act available initially. Furthermore, additional neighbors and quests will be added over the course of Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently in the internal Alpha stage, we will update this entry with a more detailed description as we get closer to the Early Access release.”

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

“As the game will more than double in content over the course of Early Access, the full release will come with an increase in price. However, we will clearly communicate the specifics of the price change well ahead of release to give players the opportunity to purchase before it happens.”

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

“Our main form of communication will be via our Discord and we will collect feedback from our players via the in-game feedback tool. Players are able to discuss and vote on features in a dedicated Discord channel to send them directly into our project management system.
We will post regular updates on our website where we will also keep an updated roadmap.”

About This Game

Start your interstellar homestead in this peaceful open-world farming adventure!
Build your sustainable exofarm, grow alien crops, and explore a new world full of mystery with up to three friends!

Get your new life started by sowing a diverse harvest! Collect seeds of numerous plants as you explore the planet, each with their own growing patterns and conditions. Care for your fields by watering them consistently while enhancing their growth with fertilizer. Trade the harvested crops for credits or turn them into materials for buildings and upgrades.

Venture out into the wilderness to discover this new world’s ancient secrets. Team up with your friendly scanner satellite to decipher clues spread across the planet’s varied environments and uncover lost knowledge.

Create the exofarm of your dreams as you turn resources into buildings! Grow your presence as you expand your homestead from basic structures to a fully-fledged, retro-futuristic farm. Make your place your own with alternative color palettes and decorations.

Farm, build, and explore in a customizable tractor mech! Choose from an array of tools, research new upgrades, and personalize your mech with a variety of paint schemes and cosmetic enhancements.

Live the quiet life as you take in the sights and sounds of your new home. Enjoy a low-stress, combat-free experience without the need to manage things like thirst and hunger. Just focus on farming, exploration, and discovery!

Adapt to changing weather conditions through the seasons, prevent creatures from eating your crops, and carefully manage your relationship with the surrounding ecosystems. This planet has much to offer, but if its resources are exhausted, the wildlife has no choice but to eat your harvest.

While your mech can handle anything the world throws at you, feel free to invite up to three friends to join you on this journey of settling and exploration! Pool your resources to create the perfect exofarm, and share the rewarding feeling of a good harvest with your pals!
