Early Access Game

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It's a great way for us to get feedback and guidance from the community on the direction we're taking and the game's core features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The new build of Lacuna Passage will stay in Early Access until the community is happy with fundamental exploration and survival mechanics. Since the project is in re-development, it will require some months to finish developing the campaign mode.”

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

“The full version will have a single player campaign, co-op missions, and Martian survival challenges.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Lacuna Passage is currently in a state of re-development since it changed developers. The legacy Survival Sandbox will always be kept playable ( on a branch ). The new re-developed version will eventually replace the Sandbox. Recent updates share the progress being made by the new team.

The legacy Sandbox is a small but compelling game with survival and crafting mechanics. It demonstrates the promise of this project and why the new team decided to take on this wonderful game.”

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

“The Early Access price won't change but we might choose to price the final version slightly higher.”

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

“As we approach the release of the new Early Access build we'll start to share more info on the Community forums and our Discord.”

About This Game

You wake in an landing pod, check your equipment, and venture out onto the red Martian soil in search of a nearby habitat. With 25 square miles of the Red Planet to explore and survive, you must gather resources from randomized points-of-interest, supply caches, and other habitats in order to continue your mission. But survival is more than just tracking status bars. Maintaining your life-support equipment is just as important as maintaining your health.



Explore a massive terrain generated from actual Mars satellite imagery. With features generated from scans collected by the HiRISE project and details painstakingly designed to reflect the photography captured by planetary rovers, this is as close as you can get to visiting the true Red Planet.



Survive the harsh Martian environment with mechanics based on real health metrics like blood glucose levels, heart rate, caloric intake, and more. You will feel like a true interplanetary pioneer as you conquer the elements and survive randomized threats like dust storms.



Capture the beauty of Mars with an in-game photography mechanic that allows you to document your discoveries. Photos are saved to your computer at full 1920x1080 resolution and can be referenced in-game where you can set objective points to navigate back to where the photos were taken.



Interact with the various astronaut technologies through your dependable datapad. You will need to manage inventories, salvage and craft supplies, and repair vital life support systems in order to survive the desolate landscapes of Mars. Find and drive rovers to help manage multiple habitats.
