About this project

Here it is

Violent Sol Worlds is a story driven, single player, action hero combat game with a massively procedurally generated planet covered in caves and complexes with an AI director that injects events and stories into the world. The entire game is highly mod-able including gear improvements, vehicles, drops, and much, much more. 

Aviro Corp has recruited you to settle far off planets to help aid in the recovery of the central planets. You will be dropped in the middle of nowhere, asked to gather resources to build equipment all the while trying to survive all the wildlife that inhabits the planet. The world is controlled by an AI overlord that will throw random events at you and help progress the story to make sure you don’t get lazy. 

You can drive cars, fight creatures and people, gather materials to build amazing things, and change the face of a planet. Explore the world, find hidden artifacts and other wonders from previous settlers. Think Firefly without Serenity, you're the settler on the planets outer rim. 

By supporting Aviro Corp, you get access to their space station with a high tech 3d printer that can make you gear and weapons if it has enough resources to do so. Of course, Aviro is going to take their cut from everything you send. 

 

We were Greenlit on Steam in under 3 months, so now we just need to get it across the finish line.

Now! We need you to help us get there. Be among the first to own Violent Sol Worlds.

Risks and challenges

This game is getting made one way or the other. It will just be better with your help. The only risk is that it could be delayed. We are shooting for a Christmas release, but as life happens delays are possible. We are pretty good about digging in and getting the job done in the time frame set in front of us, so we are not too worried about delays.
