Explore, build, fight and survive the universe of Oort Online!

Developed by former Lionhead and EA veterans, Oort Online is a multiplayer sandbox game set in a massive universe…

In the Oort Online universe, you’ll be able to explore huge numbers of different worlds, each with unique appearances, resources, real players and their creations.

Each planet is populated by vicious and varied creatures known as The Protectors. Fight them alone or with friends to be rewarded with experience and loot.

Everyone plays in the same universe. You can build anything, anywhere, from Portals to Palaces, and keep your creations safe using Beacons.

Step through a Portal and find other players, their creations, monuments, shops, cities and guilds. The whole universe is open for you to explore!

There’s much more information about the game and it’s features at oortonline.com

? Why we’re making Oort Online

We love voxel and procedural games! Minecraft, Brogue, Cube World, Infiniminer, Trove and Spore (and many more). We believe that procedural games have sparked the creation of a new genre with a rapidly growing fan base. The genre is full of exciting opportunities that Wonderstruck will develop and build upon.

Where to get the game

Oort Online is beginning it’s journey today as an early access project, available for purchase at oortonline.com. Wonderstruck have spent six months developing a prototype and will expand the game as players support the project through early access and involvement with the development process.
