PROVEN LANDS -- A procedural 3D science fiction sandbox survival game

Explore a unique, vast and beautiful science-fiction sandbox survival game, procedurally generated and studded with an AI storyteller.

Hey guys! We need your help here.

We've been working on Proven Lands with a super small team for some months now, creating a game in you become an explorer - not just another sandbox item collector. Packed with the real mysteries of physics, biology and chemistry, plus tons of (hopefully) reasonable science-fiction, influenced by Star Trek, Don't Starve, Project Zomboid and Starbound.

In Proven Lands survival is our strongest concept. It starts with a stranded astronaut -- you. You fight hunger, thirst, strange animals, weather and even the nature itself. Give the pre alpha demo a try, attempt to survive for a few days. Right at this moment you’re able to eat everything with your helmet on (for demonstration reasons) but because we aim to be a hard sci-fi game in the future you’ll have to take off your helmet first before you can eat anything. Your initial spacesuit is weak and old. However you’ll need an armored one to survive against stronger animals and armed aliens later on – oh, and you’ll need better weapons than an axe.

As soon as you’ve mastered the first terrain biome (desert), there will be plenty to discover such as steppes, savannah like environments, forests, big rivers, caves and different planet types such as ice or volcano - each filled with tons of items and characters. The AI game master will watch your influence in a region so after some time more intelligent animals, and perhaps even aliens will start to attack you. First off though we start with simple alien villagers and introduce you to a rather basic storyline. And, because it’s a sci-fi survival game, build devices, smaller machines, factories and before you basically upgrade your “camp” to a small one-man outpost -- similar to an advanced camp in Don't Starve, just deeper, bigger, and more sci-fi.

Sorry guys, haven't had a look in here for quite a while.
@spacejellypirate Thx, for the hint, we will look into it.
@Гончаров Олег NO! Just kidding, but since localization is not our top priority atm, we can not promise anything, but will consider.
@wooke: There's no date yet.
@BLOODRAVEN603: Thank you, we do our best. Rafael posts some updates about our progress once in a while.

You guys need to set up a newsletter subscription form on your homepage, mailchimp has a free plan. I follow you here but there are certainly people who don't use steam.
