Planet Explorers is an “open world voxel based sandbox adventure rpg game set on a distant planet”. There are building to construct, places to explore and great big massive creatures to see.
The trailer below really has to be seen for all this to be fully appreciated. It kind of looks like a great big single-player MMO (and I mean that in the nicest possible way) and then some great big dinosaur type thing comes running into the frame.
The gameplay will be in 3rd and 1st person perspectives. Players will be able to customize their character, combine and create weapons, vehicles, and buildings. At the same time, players will have to defeat multitudes of enemies of varying intelligence and defend the remnants of the colonists. There will also be a mission system that features NPCs giving the player goals to achieve to advance the storyline. The game will feature a single player story line as well as random single and multiplayer adventure maps. Multiplayer will feature prominently in Planet Explorers, we’ll touch on the game modes that we want to include in a future update.
Windows users currently get access to an alpha version of the game for free, but us Mac gamers are promised a release “probably at some point”.
