While searching through the various indie games on Steam I came across an interesting looking title that will soon be coming out of Early Access, Planetoid Pioneers. The game states itself to be a user-content focused metroid-vania-like game (wow that’s a mouthful) that involves you playing as a 2D character of your own creation as you explore various user created planets to do a variety of tasks.
The game’s biggest draw is the fact that each ‘Planetoid’ you visit will have its own set of challenges and rewards, being totally up to the creator of the level as to what they wish it to be. Each Planetoid will also be filled with user created content from vehicles to weapons to even custom made mechanics. It all seems to be like a sci-fi adaptation of Little Big Planet which sounds like a good time to me. It also has built in co-op so you can play with your friends!
The game comes out of early access on February 8th and I will possibly be checking it out, you may even see a review of it! That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
