Shattered Planet is coming to Steam! Plus, we’re going to be adding three new features, unique to the premium version:
- Class system – each clone skin will have a different special starting ability
- Daily Challenge – earn Crystals by trying to beat a daily seed
- Pet cloning – maintain your companion DNA in mini-clone vats, using an improved Datalog
Plus, of course, any content updates we make to the mobile version will also be in the PC version. The PC version will essentially be prettier, more complex, and require paying up-front rather than making in-game purchases.
We need your votes! If you can share, tweet, and otherwise badger your friends into voting, so much the better!
Q: When will it be ready? Why isn’t it done yet?
A: Well, those are some pretty serious features we want to add! It’ll take a little while to get those working and bug-free. If you’re interested in being a beta tester or Let’s Play Youtuber, you should tell us you want a beta copy and we’ll hook you up!
Q: Can I monetise my Let’s Play video?
A: YUP. Make money!
Q: What will the price be?
A: It’s still up for debate, but a similar price to similar-scope projects.
Q: Why did you make the free to play mobile version?
A: We felt it was the best way to get the word out about the game, and get people excited about Shattered Planet! We’re very grateful to our investors, Execution Labs, for believing in us, and it’s only because of them that we were able to afford to make both versions of the game.
Q: How much money did the free version make?
A: So far it’s made about 10% of the amount we spent to make it. So, no, not enough to live on or make another game, basically. But we’re confident it’s an awesome game and more players just need to hear about it!
Q: Will you be updating the mobile versions at all?
A: Yep! You’ll still get new items and enemies and challenges, just not the shiny premium features.
