Alersteam Announce Major Update for Survival Third Person Action RPG Exoplanet: First Contact
Small Indie team developer Alersteam is thrilled to announce that Exoplanet: First Contact just got another major update. Development of this game was made possible thanks to the $67,444 received from 2,331 backers on Kickstarter.
“Exoplanet: First Contact” is a survival singleplayer, story-driven third person action RPG set in a Space Western universe. Here, real and fictional technologies meet the cruel and unforgiving, yet romantic reality of the Wild West. You are Jack Sharp, a daring adventurer, stranded on a dangerous, wild planet known as K’Tharsis. In this hellhole of a world, the local population of both human colonists and native aborigines are oppressed by the soulless Terraform corporation who uses slaves to mine a valuable mineral known as Antigravium. The player can choose either side, a mercenary working for the corporation or as an ally with the oppressed population of K’Tharsis.
