PRESS RELEASE: MEMPHIS, Tenn (February 12, 2013) - Pathea Games has released a new update to Planet Explorers in alpha 0.5. The alpha is free to play and will offer players a chance to see what the world of Planet Explorers is about as well as give the developers some much needed feedback on the direction of the game. Planet Explorers is an open world voxel based adventure rpg game set on a distant planet. The game uses a new OpenCL system based on the Unity3D engine to allow players to change the terrain in anyway, create new objects in any form, and do it anywhere.
In Planet Explorers, it is the year 2287, one of the first colony ships sent out by Earth arrives at the planet Maria, in the Epsilon Indi Star System. During its landing sequence, something appears in front of the massive ship that causes it to lose control and crash into the planet. Some of the colonists survive in lifeboats, but what they find is an unforgiving land filled with creatures ready to outlast the visitors from Earth. Now the survivors must explorer, gather, build, create, fight, and ultimately, conquer the land.
In the new alpha build, players will be able to create any type of custom vehicle and drive it around the world, as well as trade/share the creation with other players. The build also includes a new and more detailed terrain, more missions and npc characters, more enemies and flora, and more replicatable items.
