Signs of Life is a sci-fi survival sandbox platformer with a combination of procedurally generated and hand-crafted content. You'll explore mysterious locations, Mine blocks for resources, and meet strange (and some familiar) creatures, some of which don't even want to kill you and eat your corpse. Along the way, you'll be able to craft armor, weapons, gadgets and more to assist you in surviving in an inhospitable environment.

Sensing that an apocalyptic war was imminent, the United Nations executed a last ditch plan to save what they could of the human race. 2 crafts were launched, a massive colony ship called the Hephaestus and a smaller, faster scout ship called the Hermes. The destination was a recently discovered earth-like planet with the potential to harbor life located roughly 18 light years away. The Hermes reached the planet first in order to establish a presence in anticipation of the arrival of the Hephaestus.

4 years later, as the Hephaestus approached its destination a faint signal was detected from a nearby asteroid. Against their better judgement, the crew of the Hephaestus decided to investigate, and in doing so set in motion a chain of events that would ultimately lead to their destruction.

The good news is, you managed to survive by hitching a ride on a small escape pod just in the nick of time. The bad news is, everyone you knew and loved is dead, you have nothing but the clothes on your back, a standard issue multi-function wrist laser and a faulty artificial intelligence companion named AGIS. Oh, and the human race is probably doomed.


  • An expansive world with a combination of procedurally generated and hand-crafted content
  • A bunch of weird alien creatures
  • Some familiar creatures
  • Chickens
  • Gobs of ores, materials and animal organs you can use to...
  • Craft all kinds of weapons, armor, gadgets, furniture, etc.
  • A bit of story to hold it all together.
  • Egg(s)

@TF3gamer: I believe the glitch you're talking about has been fixed, but if you see it again let me know. Sorry you missed the launch discount XD I'm sure it will be on sale again, but I imagine that doesn't help ya right now.

@TF3gamer: We'd like to try getting the steam controller working with Signs of Life at some point, but I am a bit worried that the inventory management might not work very well with a controller. The touch pads may work alright though, but I haven't tried one yet so I'm just speculating.
