Introducing Rookie and Veteran Modes

Greetings Peace Keepers!

We’ve just released an update for Ticket to Earth that adds “Rookie” and “Veteran” difficulty settings to the game.

Veteran mode is the game as it’s always been. The combat is challenging, and it’s great for players who are experienced with our unique puzzle-tactics gameplay.

Rookie mode makes the combat less challenging by giving the heroes more health and having the enemies deal less damage. It doesn't take all the challenge away, but the combat is more forgiving, helping you to learn the game.

Rookie mode also gives you the ability to skip levels that you are stuck on, allowing you to continue with the story. (If you fail a mission 3 times in Rookie Mode, the game will ask if you want to skip the mission. If you decide to skip, you can replay the mission later using the Combat Meditation menu.)

You can switch between Rookie and Veteran mode at any time from the Settings menu on the Title Screen. So, feel free to try these settings out.

Players who are new to tactical combat, or who prefer story, may want to start with Rookie mode. You can switch over to Veteran mode and continue your game whenever you like.

We love our audience and we’ve added Rookie mode in direct response to player feedback. Please let us know what you think of this addition. And if you have friends or family who you think would enjoy this new mode, please let them know about it.

For those of you who are waiting for Episode 4, we have not set a date for its release yet. However, we’ve been working hard to get it ready, and will be sharing more information soon.

For now, here's a first look at some of the new locations in Episode 4! Episode 4 starts in First Landing, the capital of New Providence.

About This Game

A distant planet. A dying colony. A deadly conspiracy.

Fight a corrupt system in Ticket to Earth, the revolutionary tactical puzzle RPG!

The mining boom has left New Providence to die and just one Earth-bound ship remains. Forced to fight to protect everything she loves, orphaned Rose stands between bloodthirsty marauders and a corrupt government.

The puzzle grid is your battlefield as you position your team, collect matching tiles, and power up devastating special abilities. You’ve never played anything like this!

Join the fight in Ticket to Earth, a sci-fi epic of betrayal and insurrection.

Unique gameplay mash-up – Revolutionary hybrid gameplay blends battlefield tactics, puzzle, and RPG to create an entirely new style of play.

Episodic science fiction epic – Get involved in the personal stories of four mismatched heroes as the fate of an entire world rests on their shoulders.

Fight for justice – Unlock hundreds of potent combat abilities and use them to defeat murderous criminals, rampaging robots, and grotesque mutants.

Enhanced Steam edition – This original mobile hit has come to PC and Mac with greatly improved high-resolution visuals and a suite of other improvements.

When the refinery failed, it wasn’t just hundreds of miners who died. From that day on, the colony was dying too.

Colonists had travelled hundreds of light years for the promise of a better life, but with the mineral deposits all but depleted and refinery destroyed, the lifeblood of New Providence was slowly draining away.

A decade later, the wealthy few are now preparing to return to Earth on a gleaming luxury starliner, leading to mass protests by the many being left behind. The entire colony has become a powderkeg of resentment and desperation, and somebody is about to strike a match…

Orphaned gardener Rose, left without a family when the refinery failed, is forced to become a Peace Keeper to protect the people she loves from an inexplicable wave of violence. Drawing upon the almost-forgotten training of her childhood, Rose battles swarms of mutated alien bugs and out of control robots. Slowly, she realises that these are not random events, but are part of an unspeakably evil plan…

As Rose and her fellow Peace Keeper Wolf are pursuing the criminal masterminds of the Lands End massacre, their shuttle is shot down over the toxic wasteland left behind by the failure of the refinery. To their horror, they find instead that not everybody died in the disaster: some of the victims live on, altered and alien, no longer remotely human. Yet, even more dangerous things lurk in the ruins…

Hidden within the freezing ruins of the Rinehart Refinery, Zero's army of murderous criminals prepare to assault the colonial capital, First Landing. Racing against time, our three heroes must confront the ghosts of New Providence's past in order to stop the Zero Day coup. Joined by new allies, will one Peace Keepers make the ultimate sacrifice so that Justice may prevail?

The city streets of First Landing explode with violence in this apocalyptic finale to Ticket To Earth. Surrounded by enemies, our heroes must enter the very heart of the conspiracy in order to stop Zero's genocidal coup. Who lives? Who dies? Who will travel home to Earth? Episode 4 is coming in early 2019.

Robot Circus is an independent game studio in Melbourne, Australia. We started the studio in 2011 after working together for many years at a large game studio on console games. Starting Robot Circus allowed us the freedom to pursue our passion for creating innovative experiences and compelling narrative.

Ticket to Earth is the kind of game we formed our studio to make. We can’t wait for you to play it, and are looking forward to revealing all the cool locations and story twists that are coming in the future Episodes.
