New Kickstarter Project Called Planets3

Planets3, pronounced as planetscubed, is a now being funded on Kickstarter as an “role playing with the pleasure of construction and the boundless freedom to roam about in a 3D universe.” Think Minecraft meets World of Warcraft.

Planets3 comes from new France-based studio Cubical Drift. The game is currently a tenth of the way done, with a targeted release date of Fall 2015 on PC only. Cubical Drift wants to eventually take Planets3 to consoles by the end of the decade. The team needs to reach a goal of $250,000, with the amount raised currently sitting around $20,000.

Planets3 features dungeon crawling along with space exploration. The in-house engine will be able to spawn planets made up to “30 trillion blocks.” The game offers a variety of customization ranging from tool building to vehicles building to go across the planet and universe. The game is also set in a multi-player universe, with players having the ability to interact with each other. Players can chose their style of combat, ranging from space warriors to silent killers.

Planets3 does not have a set story, allowing players to craft their own adventure. Planets3 will release its first adventure entitled Planets3: Race to Space. It’s exciting to see new projects appear on Kickstarter, keep an eye out to see more news on Planets3.
