About

 FREE DEMO! 

In order to celebrate the launch of our kickstarter campaign, our team has decided to offer you an early demo of Planet Centauri by releasing the latest version of our game prototype, which you can try out right now!

Please keep in mind that this prototype is still a very early build, aimed at creating, testing and refining mechanics rather than content, and thus contains barely 15% of the features and content we intend to implement before the actual release. This version is also subject to some crashes and bugs that are being worked on, but that you should be wary of nonetheless. Save often! (Ctrl + S)

Main features of the demo :  

  • Dungeons  
  • Custom magic 

Craft book/magic table: 

  • Book = wood + Leather 
  • Magic table = wood + book + 6 wisp dust

Why Kickstarter?  

Our campaign's goal is to improve the game's global quality, and to be able to port the game on PS4, PSVita and Xbox One.  

As you can guess from the images below, there has already been a few improvements on the visual aspects of the game, and we wish to keep improving our game further and further, in order to reach the highest quality we can achieve before release.

For the past few months, we've been working with a talented artist who is providing us with incredible creations and animations, encouraging us to rework and improve old creatures and content, and to create things that were not planned nor considered possible before his arrival, such as the pirate ship and futuristic armor that clearly demonstrate his abilities.

We consider this game as a once in a lifetime opportunity, and we are all working wholeheartedly to turn this project into the game of our dreams. We are ourselves very demanding when it comes to the quality of the content we produce, and mechanics we establish, and we will put as much effort as we need to meet our community's expectations, along with our own.

This kickstarter campaign allows us to gather funds which will guarantee us the best working conditions. We will use these funds and time to rework and improve existing assets, and to create new content, in order to fulfill the community's wishes. We will also try to push the quality of our game even further, by surrounding ourselves with the most talented people we can come across. Additionaly, we would like to port this game to consoles, mostly PS4/Xbox One and PS Vita, so that console players can also enjoy the challenges and mysteries of Planet Centauri.

We thank you immensely for your support, and are always available to answer any question you might have. Feel free to contact us !

Risks and challenges

There are no risks at all! The prototype is working, and updated on a regular basis, and the beta is scheduled to be released in a couple months.
This kickstarter campaign is mostly aimed at improving the game's content quality and quantity, as well as porting it to PS4 / Xbox One / PS Vita.

It has already been 2 years since we started working on this project, part-time at first due to our jobs, and full-time for the last 18 months. We are passionate and extremely motivated by our work, and we intend to release a game that will not only fulfill but exceed your expectations.

Technically speaking, and for the curious, know that the game is C++ coded and that the engine and most libraries were created from scratch, to guarantee maximum optimization and control over the game's code.
