a new fun way to develop games!
In the spirit of innovation and getting weird, we’ve created a neat iterative Early Access strategy. Intended not only to make every stage of the development a unique part of the game’s lore, but also to engage you, the player, in the development process (aka break our stuff!).
By being a part of Early Access, you’ll learn about the world, lore, and meta narratives of the game, while having a blast and unlocking rad schwag along the way, and some major OG rep too.
the demo will be told in two parts

This will be the simulator that the first settlers to the alien world will experience within their cryo sleep, on the way to Planet 7. You’ll learn the basic concepts and mechanics of the game (walking, jumping, fishing, farming, combat, etc...) This will really help us solidify the core mechanics in a very efficient and targeted manner.
You’ve been selected (read: voluntold) to be one of the brave few who would venture forth to settle Planet 7. The voyage is long and cold through deep space, so you’ll spend it in cryo sleep. But why not have fun along the way? Your body may be sleeping, but your mind will take part in a simulation meant to prepare you for your life on Planet 7, while also ensuring that the settlers will awaken from cryo sleep without any neurological damage.
Except… There's a problem. Due to corporate greed and budget slashes, the simulation is corrupted. You’re trapped inside it. If you don't find a way to fix it and “escape”, you won't wake up when the ship reaches Planet 7, and you’ll be stuck forever in this neon nightmare.
tune every couple of weeks or so for a new alpha or beta episode!
The Beta Prologue will take place on Planet 7 itself as the settlement is being constructed to be ready for the first settlers to arrive. You’ll play as one of the bots designed to clear the land and build the settlement. This will give you a chance to see the planet and settlement evolve as we build assets on the back end.
the beta prologue will be released February 6th 2023 at the start of steam next fest.
The Beta Prologue scenario is entirely different. It will take place on Planet 7, while the settlers are still on their way. You will be playing as r0-b3rt one of the Congobots, robots sent to the planet to prepare the site and build the settlement.
And that is what you will do. As we develop the game, tasks will be available for the player to experience the game setting. By completing the quests you’ll see the settlement evolve and grow. You will be given weekly missions like harvesting lumber, stone or clearing areas as you build the settlement. We want this experience to give you a sense of truly being a part of the development process, while also unlocking exclusive Beta rewards.
