Reviews

“The nuances, the colours, the galaxies in the distance, all about Gaia Beyond is an open-air poem. More than once we stopped in front of a planet or a space station to enjoy the show.”
Il Videogioco

“Easily gobbling up dozens of hours, Gaia Beyond still has plenty to offer, from trading / faction management to upgrades, to mining, it really has a full roster of features and plenty of space to explore.”

To deliver a seamless and unique experience, we created our own engine - presenting a massive 2D Open World in realtime, with no loading times inbetween. Every part of the universe is alive and active at every moment.

There you are, human.



At the face of a habitable planet way outside the Kuiper Belt, inquiringly gazing at the same stars as the rest of the living species. Everyone? Doesn’t look like we will ever find out.

The past is shadowed by war. Generations of humanity have fought on the edge of survival. First against themselves – until technology started to rise, created to serve their innate greed for dominance. During Earth times, self-inflicted catastrophes kept humanity struggling and finally forced the big departure. And yet, here they are. Split up all over the solar system, living separate realities under various conditions.

Everything is different – and actually nothing ever really changed. A new mindset of unity, awoken by the end of the Machine War, is facing hard times. Beneath the curtain of false peace and hope, bad blood had always remained. Old and new enemies are rising again and humanity will have to face its greatest trial, yet. Will you be part of mankind's downfall or guide the system into a brighter future?

It's in your hands.


And then there's us



We love gaming and we always wanted to realize our own vision of a good game. Back in 2011, this project was started with the motivation to unify the "good old" mechanics that had been around for decades and give them a nice polish with today's visual and technical standards.

It was influenced by games like Fallout 1 + 2, Diablo, Grand Theft Auto, Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Escape Velocity, Deus Ex & Co. Creating a game only half as good as those titles is a real challenge, but we will make the best effort to create something you'd enjoy!
