What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We aim to create an awesome game, and we need you as the experts to provide us with your thoughts and ideas. The XO-Planets is currently in early beta and we invite you to come and play the game so that we can continue our development together until we deliver an amazing product. The main features are already implemented, and we’re looking for your feedback to improve and polish the experience. We hope that Early Access will give us a better understanding of what you are looking for in our game, and how we can provide this to you. If you like our start and progress, we'll really appreciate your support, because as any developers we need the opportunities for going ahead and creating more and more of great content. :)

Early Access is a great opportunity for us to involve the community and create a great game together. We want to create a fantastic first impression of our game and we promise that we will do everything possible to impress you and keep the game development moving in the right direction.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It's difficult for us to give a solid release date. We would like to make the game as satisfying as it should be. We realize that XO-Planets has a lot of potentials for growth and we would like to deliver the best game possible.
Please tune-in on”

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

“The full version of XO-Planets will contain branching stories for each character, more items, more side missions, more secrets to uncover, and lore, among other features.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“XO-Planets is already playable and contains a vast amount of content in its current state!”

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

“The price may change. We will run special offers and promotions on a regular basis, all of which can be found on the Steam game page.”

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

“Working together with the community will be our main focus during the Early Access period we hope that with your support and ideas we can create the best game ever and give you the product that we envisioned. We'd like to share our content plans, updates, ideas and more, and we would love to hear your thoughts and ideas on the Steam forum.”

About This Game

A rogue-lite, action platformer, tower defense, with a little rpg all in one.
As an action platformer, you can double jump, dash, and even climb a wall up and down while using a one-handed weapon.
But all of those must be unlocked via Distro Machine using the unit component.

As a rogue-lite, every level is random procedural generated.
That means every game session is different.
It also features permadeath, so everything that you work really hard for will be gone when you die.

Well, with exceptions..

And that brings it to rpg element which can be turned off if you so desire.
The very rare Xolyriums can be collected and can be spent on upgrading your reconnoiter.

And finally, the tower defense.
This one may be a little too hard at first, but with patience, skill, and strategic preparations using gun turrets, missile launcher, or a tesla tower you can do it!

Be warned, that this game requires some patience and skill.
The AI modifications can be a little intimidating at first but once you get the hang of it, you will feel like a boss.

Are you ready to annihilate all abominations of XO-Planets to find a new home for mankind?
