We have added in the music player, with that all the Kickstarter promises have been fulfilled. We are going to continue to fix bugs. We're also aiming to get 2 add on missions added in the next build involving the two islands off the Galileo Continent. We also have a few more animals to add.

We’re also adding in a music player next time. The 32 bit version is up…but it’s not stable yet, it crashes after about an hour, so we’re still tweaking that as well. Finally, we’ve started on testing out if the player can ride animals…still not sure if it’ll be in, but we have some ideas on how to accomplish it.

A bunch of fixes this week. We fixed the skill tree resetting bug for real this time! We are also continuing to optimize the multiplayer code. Starting next build, we’ll be adding in more features and missions to the game. Once the current build stabilizes, we’ll be putting out the 32bit version and the standalone version on our site.

Also, we're resetting the official servers as the buildup is causing a lot of lag, we suggest that everyone playing on these servers save your buildings so that you won't lose them very easily.

First patch! Another patch coming tomorrow. All saves should be safe, but if you ran into any issues, it’s recommended that you restart. We should solve most of the issues within this week, we just never had so many players going through everything, so we’re seeing some issues that are rare.

Version 1.0.1 changelist:

Version 1.0[edit | edit source]


And here we are, after two and half years in Early Access, we’re finally ready to release the game on Steam. This does not mark the end of development for this title, we will continue to bug fix, tweak, and update this game for at least another half a year, after that it will depend on sales. We plan to continue to add more side stories to both adventure and story mode. We’re also looking into putting in features that were left out of the final build, such as animal riding.

In this build, we’ve opened up the language spreadsheet so that players can do translations into their own languages if they want (and then load that spreadsheet ingame), we’ll talk more about this in a couple of days.

We have found that there have been players who change numbers with a third party software in multiplayer games, giving them the ability to one hit kill other players. So, we added an anti-cheating mechanism. When we detect cheaters, he or she will be kicked from the game. If this persists for 3 times, he or she will be banned from multiplayer and reported to Steam. This is a new feature that we hastily put together, so we do need a lot of community input on if this is the right way to go and if it’s fair for everyone involved.

We’re also in the process of pushing out a demo for new players and the OST for tomorrow (or whenever Steam approves). The OST’s a DLC and will cost $3.99 on Steam. The 32 bit version of the game will be later this week or next.

Finally, we want to thank everyone who’s been with us throughout Early Access, without you, we wouldn’t have been able to be where we are today. There were a lot of rough spots throughout development, but we tried our hardest to make the game as well as we can make it. We hope you’ll enjoy it.

P.S. Please help us spread the word about this game, tell you favorite streamer, Youtuber, new media, everyone and anyone!

Beta 0.9[edit | edit source]


And here we are, at beta 0.9, the game’s basically asset complete. We will now be aiming to get this game out in final form on November 7th. We wish we had more time in Early Access, but we’ve been in here a long time, and people are getting impatient (players, investors, development staff, you name it). Of course, final doesn’t mean the end of updates, far from it! That’ll be saved for another news post on our post-final plans. But right now, for the next couple of weeks it’ll be tweaks, bug fixes, polish, and more tweaks.

In general, we have gotten crash bugs down to a minimum (we’ve only received 5 new ones since the last build, and they were fixed). If you’re crashing to desktop, we will need you to submit your output log to us to figure out why it happened.

For Kickstarter supporters, we added your names into the game at all the crashed ships. You’re listed as Star X Corporation employees, who made the colony mission to Maria possible. The in game armor and weapon sets are done but we’re still working on the code, so you’ll get them next time.

Also, please, please, please(!) spread the word that Planet Explorers is hitting final. Tell your family and friends, Youtubers, news portals, message boards, everyone! We need all the help we can get since we sort of stayed off the grid during much of development. The sales of this game pretty much feeds our studio and all of our future games.

Beta 0.8[edit | edit source]


We’ve spent the last two weeks furiously fixing and tweaking stuff. Now that we’re not focusing on adding stuff, fixing and tweaking issues has become a lot easier. The new crash reporting function has helped us a lot. We’ve found that more than half of the bugs we’ve received are due to players loading old incompatible saves in adventure mode. As you know, we’re changing adventure mode with every build, so its saves are not safe until final. We do need everyone’s help in going through Story mode, we’re going through it everyday, but since it takes 15 hours at the fastest for a run through, finding bugs there is slow going. Our next build will be next week.

Beta 0.7[edit | edit source]


We’ve added the final large new feature to the game in this build, which is the adventure single player mainline story addition. Players of course can ignore it and do what they have been doing in Adventure mode all along. Besides the storyline, we’ve also added new sidequests and enemy states to this mode. Now, this isn’t something complicated like in Civilization, but you will be able to destroy enemy towns or make peace with them. Some features are still missing (such as making peace) and will be in in the next build. All replication scripts have been taken out, so players will need to find them by doing missions or hit the dungeons. Also in this build, we’ve tweaked the strength of some of the boss animals, they’re probably a little too hard now. But please try it out and give us some feedback. We’re done adding in any major new features, so what awaits are tweaks (balance, animation, control, UI, player accessibility), bug fixes, and small additions (like more ambient sounds and npc sounds). We’re going through all the suggestions and feedback from players and will try to polish the game as much as possible before release.

Beta 0.6[edit | edit source]


We ran into some issues while adding a storyline to the adventure mode, so that has been pushed to the next build, again. But we’re getting pretty close there. Game balancing is also being focused on for the next build. For this build, we’ve fixed a lot of bugs, added some new things, and tweaked a bunch. The biggest change is with the replicator. We’re trying to separate the handheld replicator with the colony one. So that means we’re fine tuning the replication speed. The colony replicator with workers will be much, much faster than the handheld, this is still being worked on for the next build, so it’s not completely in yet. We hope to hear some feedback on this topic. Next build will be out next Friday-ish.

Beta 0.1[edit | edit source]


It has been a long road, but we've finally entered beta. What beta means for us is that all the major technical and artistic assets are in game, it does not mean we're only going to balance and bug fix from now on. There are still much left to do. Some key items on our to do list during the beta:

Ingame aid - something like the Word paperclip, optional but should be very helpful for new players.

Adventure storyline - we'll be adding in a more mission based system to the adventure mode that ties up all the gameplay elements.

AI tweaks and additions - there are still several species and behaviors to be added, also lots of balancing to do.

Storyline tweaks - adding in more cutscenes and more animation to bring the story to life, also balancing.

Optimization - optimize the game where ever possible.

Balancing gameplay - tweaks on animation, damage, hp, armor, defense, where to buy stuff, etc.

Animation - polishing up animation

Make ISO site - attempt to make an official download site for ISOs.

Bugs - terminate all bugs.

32 bit - Make the game run decent enough on a 32 bit machine.

Our beta will not last long, we should be out of it in 1-2 months. Does beta mean that saves will be protected? For story mode, yes. For adventure, no. If you want to be completely safe as far as saves are concerned, please wait for the final in a bit. Now that we're in beta, we need all of your help to determine the best balance and find all the bugs. Please give us your feedback on our board or the Steam boards or email us!

Alpha 0.97[edit | edit source]


We’re getting ever closer to the beta build. We are currently aiming to get into beta on July 18th and have the final build by mid to late August. In this current build, we’ve finished up the mainline storyline, you can go all the way from start to finish. It’s not polished yet, so for the people waiting to get into the story, please wait a bit more. We’re still adding in bits and pieces of the side quests.

For the next build, the focus for us is to better lead players into the game. We’re finding that a lot of players have little idea what to do once in the game, so they never get to the point of actually discovering all the systems. We see too many telling us that the game doesn’t have much content, which has us doing a lot of head scratching. Another major thing we’re work on is the linking up of the comfort, strength, animation speed, weapon weight, weapon types, armor types (and perhaps temperature) systems, this will solve several problems that you guys have mentioned before, such as players not using all the weapons and armor or jumping directly to the one with the most ATK or HP. We are also adding more code for NPC behavior when in battle, such as maybe a follower with a start up knife shouldn’t be waving it at a giant robot.

Here’s a new poster, once we hit beta, this will become the new image for the game on Steam.

Alpha 0.96[edit | edit source]


Hey everyone, we’re now up to a0.96, sorry for the delay, but there were several last minute problems. We wanted to get the story done in this build, but due to some asset delays, that’ll be pushed to a0.97. We did add in a lot of story content. We’ve also added in a new dungeon system to the Adventure map. We plan to use player made ISOs directly from the Workshop as treasures in these random dungeons. Speaking of the Workshop, we redid the programming for it with better compression, it’s now much faster when loading and has more options in search. The bad news is that it’s now reset, so the old ISOs will need to be uploaded again (they’re still there on the Workshop, just that the browser is only displaying the new ones). Another major change is the separation of tools and weapons, axes and knifes will stop being dual use equipment. Instead, they will become tools only. This change was made so that we can separate out the functions for every key. Finally, we also added in a disease system where the player can get sick from the elements of nature, such as staying in the rain for too long without the proper clothing, or out in the desert sun for too long without the proper clothing, or eating too much and becoming obese. This system is still unfinished as we haven’t added in the clothing functions yet.

For the next build, we’re going to get the completion of story, new cg intro, new terrain changes, new mineral deposits, and more. Coming around early June. For a look at the cg opening, check out these screens:

Alpha 0.95[edit | edit source]

We’ve added in more behaviors for animals and packs, as well as new animations (most likely some bugs). We’ve also added in more story pieces. We’ll try to finish out the main story by next build in early to mid-May. We tweaked a lot of the gameplay. We figured out some of the reasons why players couldn’t hit animals very well in melee and went about changing them. We’ve also tried to simplify controls where possible.

In this build, we focused on AI attack behavior and the new and Adventure mode terrain rendering (work in progress, some places are sorta flat). We also made it possible for executing custom stories ingame, so now players can make story based custom maps. This is still the basic version with bugs, so we look forward to players giving us feedback regarding the editor and its execution. We also started our optimization of the garbage collection problem, there’s some minor optimization with terrain rendering, that should make the stuttering happen farther apart. We’ve found that most of the stuttering happen while Unity is clearing terrain memory, so we’ll be optimizing that from now on. We hope to see improvement by the next build in early April. We ran through and fixed most of the storyline bugs, players should be able to go all the way to the Negotiations mission now. Starting with the next build, we’ll be adding a lot animation and missions to the storyline. We’ll try to be story complete by a0.96.

Alpha 0.93[edit | edit source]


Hey everyone, we’re getting closer and closer to beta. In this build, we mostly fixed a lot of the NPC behavior problems. We also moved the game up to Unity 5.24, which should fix some of the vehicle physics problems. We went about fixing most of the story related bugs, so players should be able to play through what we have right now. We’re trying to wrap up the story before beta. For the next build, which will be around mid-March, we’ll be focusing on AI groups and AI behavior, Adventure mode features, as well as the World Editor along with its story editor.

Alpha 0.91[edit | edit source]


We spend the last three weeks fixing multiple bugs in the a0.9 version. This version is a lot more stable and smoother than the previous version. We’ll have another build out around the end of the month or early Feb. For that build, we’re aiming for more missions and ai features such as group behavior.

Alpha 0.9[edit | edit source]


Happy Holidays everyone. Here's the a0.9 build. It's about a year late, and we are truly sorry for that, but sometimes, a major rewrite is needed (in retrospect, it's up for debate). For players updating from a0.87, this is pretty much a new game. Everything has been changed over the last year. This build is a bit rushed, so we expect there to be bugs. We'll straighten these out over the next two weeks. From now on, we'll be updating directly to the release build instead of the beta. We will be releasing a new demo based on the a0.9 build within the next two weeks as well. - LUMI
