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.
