Description


Exoplanet: First Contact is a single-player, story driven action RPG set in a space western universe, where real and fictional technologies meet the cruel and unforgiving, yet romantic reality of the Wild West exploration and development. You are playing as Jack Sharp, a daring adventurer, stranded against his will on a dangerous, wild planet known as K'Tharsis. The former mining outpost where he’s taken up residence is now gradually becoming a “ghost colony” as the Antigravium Crystal Rush is over and the inhabitants of this desert world struggle for survival.



In our game we transpose the outstanding archetypes of the western genre characters and the ever-existing problems of the human race to the steadily moving Space Frontier, to a resource colony situated far from the beaten paths on the wild, untamed planet K’tharsis. Torn apart by conflict between the mining corporations and the free prospectors, the colonists, and natives, this is a place where actions speak louder than words, a place that contains eminent danger for our protagonist, who has never before set foot on these hot sands.



Despite the fact, that you can ride a hoverbike and have cybernetic augmentations, you still need to keep your trustworthy revolver well cleared and greased, just in case you want to leave the town’s walls. The local humans often see kindness as a weakness and aborigines won't be impressed by bubble gum and glass beads.

The Western genre has not only granted us a healthy dose of good old “shoot ‘em up” moments but also a rich set of charismatic characters to meet. Many of them are the spiritual successors of cult personalities from Western movies who always have a strong and understandable motives, as well as a few skeletons in the closet.



On K’Tharsis, the vast desert in-between the so-called fires of civilization is ruled by violence. Various outcasts, desert raiders, runaway slaves and even the original natives are always thirsty for the blood of other inhabitants of this cursed planet. They fight the “normal” people and aliens, who seek safety behind the walls of free settlements and last corporative enclaves. These are the years of decay for human colonial regime on K'Tharsis. A single man in the wrong place, at the wrong time becomes the smallest stone that triggers an avalanche of events. The only thing guaranteed is that not every inhabitant of the planet will survive.

We also decided to invent a “new gold”, a precious mineral which is driving the colonists mad, spilling some fresh oil onto the flames of the eternal conflict in human civilization. This “new gold” is called Antigravium, and it became a symbol and the fuel that feeds the ambitions of the daring colonists, who, like their ancestors, are mesmerized by the visions of enormous wealth to be found literally under their feet on those wild Frontier planets. Unable to resist the call of this new Gold Rush, they ventured to the wilderness to spend their life in an unrelenting environment in hopes of laying foundations for the generations to come — or to die in vain.



The “Antigravium Crystal Rush” broke out on K’Tharsis decades ago, but the local powers that be are still fighting for control over the remaining deposits of this treasured mineral. Wandering in this strange world full of opportunities and deadly traps, you must act carefully, always watching your back and keeping an eye on your numerous enemies, trusting only a select few friends.

Features:
  • Interactive environment as a gameplay component.
  • Non-linear story and various gameplay options.
  • Choose your tactics. Lead this world to peace and order or cause war, violence and destruction.
  • Combo attacks with the use of interactive environment.
  • Fascinating story and charismatic characters.

@Trar, thanks a lot. We are pleased to hear it although our game is actually Gothic/TES III: Morrowind in Firefly setting. But RDR of course also has some credits.

@Frozen Fry, I can't claim the date but we are working hard for a new and big beta location at the moment. And of course we don't want you to play some raw product with a lack of a content. So we are trying our best to make it quicker but qualitativelyю Thank you for understanding.

@MaXPLOITed, привет, написать нам в личные сообщения можно

Спасибо за внимание к нашему проекту, но, тем не менее, в данный момент у нас в команде уже есть и саунд-дизайнер, и композитор.
