Planet Centauri, an action adventure RPG developed and published by Permadeath, has launched on Steam Early Access. According to the developers, players will get to discover new biomes, explore hidden dungeons, capture and tame monsters, build and protect a NPC community, craft your own weapons and create your own magic spells. Save and protect the native Chlorinian species from the evil Night Walkers. Develop and raise the Planet Centauri to the heavens as the cradle of a new civilization.
Speaking about creating your own magic spells in Planet Centauri, Permadeath have said:
“From controlling the arc and pattern of your fireballs to simply enhancing your jumping abilities, craft a plethora of magical effects to fit your desires.”
The game is also set to have some defining characteristics for its runes, such as:
- Use runes to enchant your equipment with various stats and effects
- Weapons and armor share 7 levels of rarity. Higher rarity always coming with stronger, and more unique effects and characteristics
- Monsters also happen to have rarity levels, rarer monsters being much more powerful and dangerous than their common counterparts, with unique abilities and reinforced stats.
Planet Centauri‘s network system allows you to design various electronic systems, from humble automated house lighting to frantic death lasers. This is achieved through a large number of electric and electronic components, including : – generators, power wires, resistors, capacitors – noise, serrated, square and sinusoidal signal generators – up to 16 bit information signal, with a large variety of mathematical and binary operators. However, this is currently set to “Coming Soon” on the games Steam page, and there is no time frame as to when this will be added to the game as of yet.
The game is also set to have programmable robots, with Permadeath saying:
“Thanks to the LUA script, you can easily program custom AIs and behaviors for your robots and villagers! Imagination is your only limit! Mining, hunting, defense, exploration, whatever you want.”
