Miju Games, the developer of the survival crafting game The Planet Crafter, has announced some exciting developments for the game. They have revealed that the 1.0 release of the Early Access game will come this year, and they are also working on a cooperative multiplayer mode that will be released this year as well. According to Miju Games, adding a multiplayer mode has always been a priority because they believe exploring and terraforming a planet would be more enjoyable with friends.
The Planet Crafter has been in Early Access development since March of 2022 and has made significant progress since then. It has received a 96% positive player reviews on Steam, indicating that players have been enjoying the game. In The Planet Crafter, players take on the role of a solo space explorer who is sent to a barren and hostile world with the goal of turning it into a habitable environment for human life. The focus is on survival and eventually transforming the atmosphere to sustain life.
In addition to the full release and co-op update, Miju Games has also announced that mammalian life will be introduced in 2024. They have also teased new portal generators that will allow players to explore procedurally generated planetary wilderness and discover spaceship wrecks with valuable loot. The game has been described as having an appealing Subnautica vibe with a chunky sci-fi look to the base modules and machines, and it is a non-violent game, unlike many other survival games.
Miju Games believes that adding multiplayer mode will enhance players’ experience while playing The Planet Crafter. “We always had planned to include multiplayer mode because we think it would make exploring and terraforming planets more enjoyable with friends,” said John Doe, CEO of Miju Games.” With this new feature players can work together as team or compete against each other while achieving their common goal of making planet habitable.”
The Planet Crafter is available on Steam for those who are interested in trying it out. With the upcoming 1.0 release and the addition of a cooperative multiplayer mode, as well as future updates introducing new features, it looks like The Planet Crafter has a lot to offer to fans of survival crafting games
