Hi Gamedev! I'm Laurent, cofounder of Permadeath, and this is our first game, Planet Centauri!
 
Planet centauri is a 2D sandbox RPG with some building and village management, on which we've been working for about 2 years and a half now.
You play as a human whose ship was stranded on an unknown planet near Alpha Centauri, thanks to a mechanical failure. Your goal will be to survive through the many dangers of an unknown and hostile world, and find a way back home!
 
We work hard to offer players a game that will contain a multitude of features that makes our game unique. The game is created with an engine and a library created entirely by our programmer to get the best performance possible (C++)

Suffixes, characteristics and runes
 
Weapons and armor share 7 levels of rarity, higher rarity always coming with stronger, and more unique effects and characteristics. They are also named depending on those characteristics. It is possible for the player to enhance his equipment through forging, and make his gear progress through the 7 rarity levels, sometimes unlocking rare special abilities and effects.
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.
 
An other way to improve your equipment would be using socketable runes, which add stats and effects to your equipments. Runes also come in 7 levels of rarity.

Craft your own magic spells!
 
From controlling the arc and pattern of your fireballs to simply enhancing your jumping ablities, craft a plethora of magical effects to fit your desires.

Catch them all! Capture and tame monsters!
 
Your new companions will support you and will evolve to become stronger! Each captured creature keeps its unique features, evolving as it gains experience fighting by your side.

Agriculture and Cooking
 
"Eat well to get stronger" has never been a more truthful quote than in Planet Centauri. Eating various types of food will cause your character to grow stronger and develop his abilities.

Build a village and assign roles and jobs to its inhabitants
 
Save the native Chlorinians, build and fortify their villages. Befriend them and grant them jobs as hunters, tailors, guards, wizards, researchers and much more!

Programmable robots
 
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!

Create without limits with our unique network system!
 
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! You can find more detailed information on our network systems following this link :

Impressive!  Love the animal capturing and transformations, not to mention the crop growing! smile.png


I want to help design a "sandpark" MMO. Optional interactive story with quests and deeply characterized NPCs, plus sandbox elements like player-craftable housing and lots of other crafting. If you are starting a design of this type, please PM me. I also love pet-breeding games.
