TweetFBPost

Shattered Planet is coming to Steam, Desura, and Humble on July 3rd for PC, with Mac following on July 17th! Both will include Steam Achievements and Steam Trading Cards.

Humble and Desura will offer a DRM-free option. If you have any questions or excitements to share, the forums aren’t so far away!

And if you missed the Greenlight trailer, we’ve updated it for easy sharing, though we’re working on an even shinier one for launch, with the new features:

Screenshot Contest: Everyone Gets a Key!

Congratulations to AxL Neo, who submitted the following screenshot to our contest, thus stealing our meme-devouring hearts:

so WoW!

so WoW!

Thank you to all who entered. It was a tough decision. IN FACT…

We’re going to give ALL of the people who entered the contest a free Steam Key!

So, congratulations all around! But, for the record, AxL Neo wins more than all of you, and will receive his Steam key first. By at least 10 minutes probably.

Spring Screenshot Contest: Win a Steam Key!

Calling all photographers! We’re looking for some creative screenshots or photos of Shattered Planet!

You have until midnight EST on May 15th to submit your best screenshot/photo — edited or raw! Share on our Facebook wall, Tweet at @kitfoxgames with it, or send it on over!

The winner(s) will receive a free Steam key for the premium PC version!

Vote for Premium Shattered Planet on Steam Greenlight!

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!

FAQ

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.
