Despite a failed Kickstarter campaign, indie developer Eleon Game Studios has forged ahead with Empyrion – Galactic Survival, a game that combines several genres in a 3D open world. You will fly across space, land on planets, build, explore, fight and survive in a hostile galaxy full of hidden dangers.


Improvements, direct from Eleon:

When you now approach a planet, the following two main factors determine the behavior of the spaceship:

1. Gravity of the planet => atmospheric drag
2. Density of the atmosphere => aerodynamic heating


 The extent of gravity determines the force that pulls you toward a planet (atmospheric drag). Once you are in the gravity field of a planet and your thrusters are not sufficiently strong, you cannot escape the gravity field anymore and you will be pulled towards the planet. The degree of the atmosphere’s density will determine the aerodynamic heating (see entry effect in the screenshots) and how strong you are slowed down.


 If you are approaching the planet with too much speed your spaceship will get damaged and eventually be destroyed. The planets differ with respect to their gravity and the density of the atmosphere.

Moreover, we have integrated two new creatures into the game. A scary, hostile creature that you may encounter on lava planets….



…. and a peaceful species that lives on snow planets – but you still should be careful.



 Pre-order the game now and receive up to 30% off the price of the Alpha version that’s coming to Steam in 2Q 2015.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
