Exoplanet: First Contact

Setting[edit | edit source]

The game is set in a Space Western universe - a subgenre of science fiction, that transposes themes of American Western books and film to a backdrop of futuristic space frontiers.

In Exoplanet: First Contact we have brought together distinctive elements of Wild West, futuristic technologies and feudal society of a distant human colony, placed on a wild and dangerous planet named K'Tarsis.

The planet is going through dark times of crisis and chaos after a massive wave of gold rush. K'Tarsis is now a "ghost colony" with no law and order except of "the rule of gun and fist".Colonists must struggle to survive in aggressive environment and fight the uprising natives and criminals of all kind.

Style[edit | edit source]

Exoplanet:First Contact is a balanced Action/RPG mix focused on exploring and interaction with the game's world. There will be no complicated statistic and numbers. Action is represented by 3rd person shooter with deep gunplay and tactical variability, based on the so called "Gunslinger Mode" (see the 3d-screnshot in our video!). The "Gunslinger Mode" is an advanced variant of "slow time" game mechanic. It replaces the classic tactical pause but does not reduce the dynamic of the action that much.

Story[edit | edit source]

You start your adventures on K'Tarsis as Jack Sharp, a space nomad, who has lost his starship and was enslaved by some criminals. You must recover your freedom and avenge your foes. Explore the dangerous planet and its darkest secrets! Find legendary treasures of mysterious race of so called "Dark Wanderers"! You will become a part of epic events and fascinating stories!
