Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We wish to improve the game by collaborating with the community, and for this we need everyone be able to access the game. Even if the game is currently stable and includes lots of features allowing players to have hours of fun, it won't compare with what Planet Centauri will be during its final release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“A little more than a year. This may seem a bit long, but we promise the huge amount of upcoming features will be worth the wait!”

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

“Here is the list of the features that we still need to implement:

  • Themed dungeons | Biomes: post-hell | Biomes: sky | Technology | Vehicles & Mechs
  • Grapple hook / ninja rope | Modding compatibility | God Saucer (minigames area)
  • Tower of 100 challenges | Themed parallel dimensions | Fluid dynamics
  • Biomes: oceans | Fishing | Programmable robots | Wiring | Pipes | Thunder
  • Fire (buildings can catch on fire etc.) | Achievements / Game encyclopedia / Compendium
  • Temperature | Gas dynamics | Dynamic buildings (build your ship)
  • Space exploration & combat | Exoplanets

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We currently are in version v0.5.5, which includes the following features:
  • Monster/Weapon/Armor/Rune rarity levels
  • Custom spell creation
  • Player to monster transformation
  • Capturing and summoning monsters
  • Quests
  • Agriculture and farming
  • Create your village and give the villagers jobs

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

“Absolutely not! But only people buying the game during Early Access will get the Phoenix pet, which can transform into a mythical phoenix blade.”

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

“We are always listening to the community and player requests concerning upcoming features are the highest priorities! We also answer every question on the forums or social media and read all the comments. Feel free to write us a message if you have any questions!”

Patch v0.8.9 - New transformation mechanics/UI !

YOU NEED TO CREATE A NEW MAP TO FIND SEALS IN THE CHESTS!

Hello! This is the brand new transformation system!



  • You can now turn into any monster of the game! (Aside boss and the ghost for obvious reasons)
  • New UI! (You will find that the new UI is very different from the standard ui, it's normal, we will integrate step by step a new UI much more pleasing to the eye and much more convenient!)

  • A new transformation mechanic with sacrifice and new souls! You will need now :
  •         1 - Create the transformation table
  •         2 - Capture a monster with a capture gem
  •         3 - Sacrifice the monster to gain dark souls
  •         4 - Find Transformation Seal (you will find them into chest, it's temporary)
  •         5 - Capture the monster you want, check what seal you need on the transformation table,               put the suitable seal and click on the seal button
  •         6 - Congratulations, you can turn you into the chosen monster now by using the seal!
  •         7 - You can evolve! Just put your seal (with the monster inside on the right and the monster who is on the superior level on the left (If you have a lvl 1 rarity on your seal, you need to capture a level 2 rarity on the gem)




    You will find the number of dark souls you have by open your inventory! You can only get soul darks by sacrificing monsters (for the time being)


    ps : We also fixed somes multiplayers bugs.

    Thank you everyone and have fun!

Have you seen the bug "create.cpp:138" in multiplayer?

Hello!

There is a bug in multiplayer that is the cause of +/- 98% of the multiplayer crashes currently (just in 24h, it appeared 149 times among those who played yesterday) but we fail to provoke it once on your own computer and don't have a clue of what is this bug, why it's happen and when.

"(WIN) 'std::runtime_error InstanceContainer: uid 9940 of object 39 is already assigned.
H:\win32_apps\BuildCentauriWin32\Centauri\project\centauri\monsters\create.cpp:138 ";

If one day you see an error message that ends with create.cpp:138 Thank you to provide us all information about when it's happened in the game (login , kill a monster, client/server? Everyone was disconnected or only you etc...)

Thank you everyone and have a good Sunday!


ps : it's really important to message us when you have a crash. if you have this screen, explain to us each time when it's happen and why (if you have a clue about that) because without explaination, we rarely can help you to solve the problem.
