LIFE in Within the Cosmos!
Description
Release date: Late April-Early May 2017



WITHIN THE COSMOS takes place in the year 2278. You are one of 500 people who work for UESA (United Earth Space Agency). You were put in cryogenic sleep and sent to the planet 'Berith II'. A planet that is tucked away in the Zeta Arae star system. 500 humans were sent there to preserve the human race, as they were on the verge of losing an interstellar war with an alien species. 

You wake up from your cryogenic sleep, only to find that there is no one left in the station but you.

Your mission is to traverse through a hand-crafted star system consisting of multiple planets and moons, and find out what happened to the people you were sent there with, where they went, and why you are the only one left.




  • Unravel the mystery that caused the disappearance of your crew
  • Fly to multiple planets and satellites in the Zeta Arae system
  • Experience combat in first person on the surface of planets against hostile Artificial lifeforms
  • Use your starship to travel between celestial bodies, as well as to defend yourself against alien starships
  • Make use of UESA's planetary vehicle; a way to quickly traverse great distances on alien terrain
  • Get access to different modules which give your spacesuit greater functionality as the game progresses (i.e. a jetpack)
  • Learn about ancient alien cultures and civilisations by learning their language and reading messages they've left behind, engraved on numerous sculptures
  • Encounter various alien life forms
  • Manage your hydration, hunger, oxygen, and radiation levels to ensure survival



  • Defend the energy core from waves upon waves of enemies
  • Construct and place different machines to aid you in your defence (Laser Turrets, Sniper Turrets, Traps, & more)
  • Build up points to unlock a wide variety of different weapons and get access to different areas of the map
  • Purchase modules to upgrade your spacesuit and change the tide of the battle
  • Uniquely crafted maps made specifically for the SWARM game mode

FAQ

Q: Mac and Linux versions?
A: I have yet to test it on either OS, but I intend to test it on both before release, and if I'm unable to have them working by release, I will try my hardest to ensure that a Mac and Linux version will release at some point within the first few months of the Windows version.

I'm assuming you mean what stage of development is it in? Currently, I'm adding details to a few of the maps, adding some more life forms, and fixing some minor bugs here and there. Afterwards, I will do a full optimisation and polish sweep across the entire game. The game is nearly done, so I'd say about 80% complete.

Merci pour votre commentaire!

@Velocity in Motion
Thank you for the lovely comment! I've yet to decide on a price, but I'm currently thinking something in the range of 14.99-19.99 USD

I am genuinely impressed by this game! Can't wait to try it for myself. This has probably been asked and answered, but what will the price of this be?

Je ne peux pas attendre pour jouer! Il semble incroyable!

Haha, thank you! I'm glad to hear you're excited! I currently have no plans to add multiplayer/co-op. It definitely wouldn't fit in Story mode, but co-op might work in Swarm mode. I'll try it out once the game is a bit closer to release and I'll see how it goes. One thing is for sure though, I will definitely attempt to make this completely playable in VR once I get a headset!

Hey, I do plan to add Linux support. I intend to do some testing on Linux before release. I'll be sure to contact you if I need any assistance in doing so! Thank you for the offer! :steamhappy:
