Big News! The new, cross-platform version of Planitia is about to go into alpha! This alpha, called “The Gods’ Playground” will be designed to test the networking capabilities of the game. The alpha begins on April 4, 2014 and if you want in, all you have to do is contact me! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or respond to this thread on the forums, or even respond to this post on my Facebook page. All I need is your email address. The current version of the game supports both Windows and Linux and I’d like a good balance between the two.
Planitia is a unique, fast-playing real-time strategy game based on classic “god games”. In Planitia, you shepherd your villagers, helping them grow and give you mana. But you are not the only god in this world and conflict is inevitable! Once you have enough mana, you can use your god powers to help your villagers further by blessing their land or healing them, or you can smite the heathen unbelievers with lightning, earthquakes, meteors and volcanoes! You can also convert your villagers to soldiers to directly attack the enemy or fend off their attack. The final game will include four-player multiplayer as well as a single-player campaign. There is only one true god…is it you?
While it is increasingly outdated, you can download the current version of Planitia to get a sense of what it’ll be when it’s complete. (Currently Windows only; Linux and Mac versions are coming.)
