MEMPHIS, Tenn (March 12, 2014) - Planet Explorers, the indie adventure RPG game by Pathea Games has been released on Steam Early Access. Planet Explorers was approved through the Greenlight process in early 2013 for Steam release. The game retails on Early Access for $24.99. Planet Explorers is now at the alpha 0.75 build. This build include new features such as water physics and new AI behavior and collision.

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, build a new home.

The gameplay is in 3rd and 1st person perspectives. Players are be able to customize their character, combine and create swords, guns, vehicles, objects, 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 are also multiplayer modes where players cooperate to survive on procedural alien worlds. Pathea Games plans to finish up the game for final release in late 2014.
