    Attention Nomads - Launch Date and Alpha Update

    https://www.planet-nomads.com/2017/0...-alpha-update/

    Dearest Nomads,


    It's calendar marking time! We have two dates for you today. One is pretty soon and the other is even closer. And they are both awesome.


    Planet Nomads Public Launch Date - 18th April 2017


    This is the date most Nomads are looking forward to. All the Nomads out there and honestly all the Nomads in here. After the 2+ years of upbringing, Planet Nomads has grown up tall enough to get out there and dance with the best of them.


    What does it mean - on April 18th you and everyone else will be able to buy and download the game on Steam (Early Access) or GOG (Games in Development). Feel free to put Planet Nomads on your Wishlists on these platforms to be reminded when the time comes.





    Early Access / Games in Development


    This approach to video-game publishing was introduced by Desura in 2011, followed by Steam (2013) and GOG (2016). It was a blessing to indie devs, who could publish their games earlier and continue working on them together with valuable feedback from players, energy boost and steady income for further work. After the years of use, Early Access has lost much of its former glitter and glory, its reputation tarnished with numerous titles that never got finished or were rubish to begin with.


    Then again it has brought many good games to life and we still believe in this concept. We know it's the perfect one for Planet Nomads - a sandbox game with so many mechanics to get right and features to add. We cannot be sure if you'll love it as much as we do, but we promise you we've given it our all and will continue to do so for as long as we can.


    What Will the Initial Release of Planet Nomads Include



    The first public version of Planet Nomads will already have both survival and creative modes. You will have wheels and suspensions to build that car of your dreams. You will have over 50 blocks to build your base anywhere on the globe. In the icy tundra mountains, under the scorched desert sand, or in the boggy jungle under the tall rain forest trees.


    Good knowledge of your surrounding. An engineering mind. These are the keys to your survival. There's plenty of life all around you. Shrubs with berries, animals to hunt. But not all berries are edible and not all animals are prey in Planet Nomads. In Planet Nomads, you are the alien.


    You can fight back with guns, but ammo will be scarce before you can manufacture your own. You can use your multi-tool for defense, but it will eat up your suit energy leaving no power for your jetpack and life-support systems.


    It's easier to live in some biomes, while the dangerous ones are more exciting and rewarding. The depths of the planet hide precious resources. Mine them well.


    At first, it will be all ground action with vehicles, water action with hovercrafts and aerial action with the jetpack, but we will push out updates that will expand your reach. Transportation system between planets using the ancient technology found in alien monuments at first. Then you will build your first space ship and reach the open space, discovering new planets and galaxies.


    How Do We Get There - Alpha Branch Update - 23rd March 2017



    Together with our precious Alpha Nomads, who have been playing and fine-tuning Planet Nomads since August 2016, we will deliver the first publically available version of Planet Nomads to everyone.


    In fifteen days, Alpha Nomads will receive an update to the closed-alpha version of Planet Nomads on Steam. It will include nearly all of the features of the public release. From that point on, we will have less than a month to create a stable, great-looking and most of all enjoyable sci-fi survival sandbox game on procedural planets with multiple biomes. Something that hasn't been done in any other game yet (unless Mass Effect Andromeda has a great surprise for us).





    Let's start counting. It's in days now...


    PS: We can hardly express how glad we are to finally be here. How glad we are we haven't walked the path alone. That we had so many Nomads with us on the journey. Thanks guys, you're the best.

    Transportation system between planets using the ancient technology found in alien monuments at first. Then you will build your first space ship and reach the open space, discovering new planets and galaxies.

    Glad to hear there's a Linux version bundled with Mac/Windows' releases. That's a good start ;)

    Well crap. You do realise that the alpha release is right after Mass Effect Andromeda, right?

    I'd really like to thrash this game for testing and general excitement purposes, but it's gonna be hard :(

    Luckily I dislike shooters and all I've seen so far from MEA is shoot, shoot, shoot and shoot some more..... that means I don't need to chose..... though I need to find some time to play, since I've got some art projects that need finishing next week

    I can't express how excited I am to try out the "early" Early Access. The visuals are amazing, the world generation looks real and interesting for exploration. DAT JUNGLE O_O! I want to build my base right over that water. Can you dive in this game? Are there fishies? Are there bird sounds? These questions are eating me up!

    If this game has been done right, then, boy I feel bad for Sean Murray. He is probably going to hear a it a lot!

    As I stated before, I'm really hoping my computer can handle it.

    Where is the Planet Nomads countdown timer like they had for No Man's Sky? LOL

    Craneballs, ask your community to make content for you. Ask people to make concept art, environment, weapon, suit, and creature design. Music, UI and HUD. Give a disclaimer stating that posting artwork will be received as voluntary work and void of any copyrights. Then use these designs as inspiration for new content. If you guys had done this, I would've given a bunch of creature designs I made a couple of months ago. And as stated above, Benjamin is an artist, maybe he can make some fan art content as well.

    DAT JUNGLE O_O!

    Assuming the game will be released Thursday 23rd, around 3pm EST, then, counting from the time of this writing, we have to wait another 40.5 hours!


    I was thinking of streaming my gameplay, but when I installed NVIDIA's streaming software, it rejected my video card for minimum requirement. X (

    Where are those companies donating free computer materials when you need them? ( I know, I'm not a famous material reviewer. I was just joking!)


    I hope the game is tough, but at the same time, I'm hoping it isn't. Part of me wants to sit and enjoy the scenery without having to worry about the food, rest, stamina, oxygen, and poison levels.

    DAT JUNGLE O_O!


    I've been telling some streamers to cover Planet Nomads. I talked to Sirian Gaming, and Atlas Horizon. Sirian gaming said that he was going to look into it and talk to CobraTV. Atlas Horizon didn't even know this game existed. I've been insisting for him to check it out, and he finally just looked at some of the things I made. Just yesterday, he said he really wants to try it out. He said he wants to stream it.

    And thank you so much Craneballs for including one of my projects in your Unity web page https://madewith.unity.com/en/storie...anets-in-april . That was really nice for you guys to do that, and that meant a lot to me. Thank you!

    Now, come on! BRING ON THAT GAME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Assuming they will be ready with the update. Since it's a relatively small studio, I guess we can't rule out the possibility of some scheduling difficulties or delays (which is okay/normal by me, btw).

    also not forgetting if we can survive playing the actual survival game, by what they have on trello. you can die from....been to hot,cold, attract by animals, eating poison, falling from too high, and that is just to start with, im sure there will be others...been shot, drowning, blowing your self up, falling in lava, running out of air, and been slowly digested by a man eating plant over many years while its acidic digestive juices slowly eat through are body's, (maybe)

    Sounds like fun.... in a game! According to their latest tweet, the update for tomorrow is still on, but most likely only on Steam if I recall right.

    Lol well the Trello Page updated 20 minutes ago saying that Third update is completed and to get it we have to opt in on the beta in steam properties tab. Nothing there yet so guess its just a waiting game on Steam to get there act together and filter it through to us lol
