Exoplanet: First Contact – Space-western Story-driven Action RPG – Kickstarter Launched

Backercamp has informed us about a new Kickstarter campaign for Exoplanet: First Contact; a space western, single player, story driven, action RPG that is inspired by classic games such as Fallout, TESIII Morrowind, Gothic, and the Firefly TV-series.

The team aims to raise $45K in the next 25 days.

In Exoplanet: First Contact, players take the role of Jack Sharp, a daring adventurer, stranded on a dangerous, wild planet known as K’Tharsis.

K’Tharsis is a former mining outpost, gradually becoming a ghost colony as the Antigravium Crystal Rush is over and the inhabitants struggle for survival.

Exoplanet: First Contact is a mix of an RPG and an action game, played via a third-person perspective. As the team claims, the player will decide how the story will unfold as he makes choices during the game that will affect the outcome.

Exoplanet: First Contact is powered by Alersteam’s own proprietary game technology called the Sahara Engine, and will come with some mod tools.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
