Since the day has finally arrived, we have a new addition in Steam #games. Hence Planet Nomads the sci-fi sandbox game #releases on Linux, Mac and Windows PC today. The release is now available now on Steam #EarlyAccess and GOG. Since the gameplay about constructing your own planetary fate. Hence you play as crash-landed scientist astronaut determined to beat the odds. While building great things. And since this is done using the particle-manipulating multi-tool. With the help of the enviro-protec suit, these become your best friends.

So Planet Nomads is coined as a sandbox game of survival through building. Therefore it takes players on a journey across across alien planets. These are big, beautiful and unsentimental. And since the environment changes as the players travel around the globe. This means it could be an icy pole, sandy hot equator or everything in between.

And yes, the journey is full of awe-inspiring sights and experiences. Yet also dangerous as well. Since nature also has different threats, with many beasts and unhealthy conditions. Even things such as radiation, poison, heat and cold. So players have to seek sources of food and water to stay healthy and strong.

Planet Nomads Features

  • Multiple biomes on procedural planets
  • Freedom to build anything block by block
  • Building is a key part of the survival gameplay
  • Impressive wheel and vehicle physics
  • Interplanetary travel will open in stages
  • Building a spaceship will be the first end goal

Therefore in order to combat the adversities. Players should act smart and rely on the technology at hand. Rather than solving everything with an ever-more powerful arsenal of guns and weapons. So think twice before engaging the armored Godillos. Or trying to loot animals’ nests for resources. The games about building your own corner in the world. While making bold moves into the more dangerous parts of the world. All through careful observation and learning.

Once well fitted for survival. Players should roam the whole planet. Since the release is poised to have you search out more precious materials. So you can progress their technology further across Linux, Mac and Windows PC.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Speaking directly we want to stay in Early Access for a year or two.

While we aim to develop a complete simulator of a stranded astronaut scientist who manages to build a spaceship to get back to space to cruise the stars and star systems, possibly managing to find a way home, we don’t want to wore out our passion for this project. Four years of pouring our hearts and souls into Planet Nomads sounds about right.”

Craneballs are designing Planet Nomads to be able to gradually expand the game. Since the world is big, they are keen to keep adding new content and mechanics. Since they already have a few in mind. These will come up later in the games development. And directly from people playing Planet Nomads in the Early Access phase.

Zombasite: Orc Schism expansion announced

zombasite orc schism expansion announced linux games on steam

Zombasite: Orc Schism is the first expansion for the unique action RPG. Hence Zombasite is the #zombie apocalypse action #RPG for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. The dynamic, evolving, fantasy world still holds a Very Positive 83% rating on #Steam.

What’s the Zombasite: Orc Schism Story?

Long ago, when a necromancer attempted to raise Elves he thought to be dead. The whole process went very wrong. So instead of raising an army of zombie slaves. Hence a new race was born. The irate Orcs ripped the necromancer to shreds.
So the dormant necromancer magic has protected Orcs from zombie infection ever since. Yet the Zombasite, a zombie parasite, is intelligent. Finally learning how to break the defensive magic. And the new infection swept through the entire Orc population like wildfire. Yet again it all went very wrong. So now a a war rages within each Orc between the Orc blood and the Zombasite. All due to the original Elven blood.

The Orc Blood

So when the Orc blood won, a Dark Orc arose. With less Elven influence in their physiology. The Dark Orcs’s aggressiveness and strength intensified. They have now expanded their terrible savagery.

When the Elven blood won, the new being became one of the Mutated. Due to the Mutated being a new, unstable Elven/Orc race. The Elven heritage has become the dominate part, but they are still corrupted with Orc blood and necromancer magic. This corruption slowly mutates them over time, sometimes in good ways and sometimes bad. No one quite understands the Mutated and everyone fears them.

And finally when the Zombasite won, a Zombie Lord was unleashed. Zombie Lords have full access to the strength of the Orcs and intelligence of the Elves. They are the most powerful and feared Zombies in existence.

With three new powerful factions rising up from the ashes of the old Orc race. How will you continue to survive the Zombasite?

(Zombasite: Orc Schism does not have an official trailer or teaser yet)

Orc Schism Features:

  • Play the Bard class (Minstrel, Illusionist, and Sage specialties) (now 333 total class combinations)
