Planet Nomads is officially launching into early access this morning on Steam. The sci-fi survival sandbox was originally slated for an April launch but missed that window, instead allowing the backers of its $140,000 2016 Kickstarter to play closed beta this past month.
“Living the nomadic life is full of danger,” developer Craneballs says. “And adventure, sure. But mostly danger.” The studio is touting the game’s colorful universe, “LEGO-style building on a large scale,” and an actual in-game goal for dedicated players: designing and flying a “spaceship capable of interplanetary travel.” Multiplayer was one of the “future features” mentioned during the Kickstarter; the Steam page says that multiplayer is one of the things it now means to consider “eventually” as the early access wears on.
When the game is live today, expect it to be on sale for 10% off for its base price of $30. We’ve got the early access trailer for your eyeballs down below, and you can check out our early stream of the game too!
