Ever wondered how you would survive if you crash landed on a strange planet? Well, in Planet Explorers you can experience just that scenario. The game is a voxel based RPG with plenty of open world elements that will have you hooked for hours with its in-depth gameplay.


The game allows players to play one of three game modes in single player or load up the game in a multiplayer environment. Game modes include the main story mode which plays out like Minecraft survival (although with many more features and options).

The other two game modes are adventure mode which is quest based and build mode which is the creative outlet in Planet Explorers focused on building and creativity. While multiplayer options include co-operatively and various versus game modes.

Planet Explorers takes place in the distant future (2287) and starts out with the player crash landing on the distant planet of Maria. What originally was a first colony mission to a distant planet has now turned into a mission for mere survival in a harsh environment. In order to thrive in the game world you will have to explore your surroundings, gather the necessary resources, build tools and structures, fight or befriend the planet inhabitants and more.


Planet Explorers truly has everything that you could ever want from a game and the feature list is both huge and impressive. Other features worth noting are the long range view distances, huge game world (story mode is hand designed while the other game modes are procedural), in game blue prints, large enemy variety, farming and options for diplomatic relations with inhabitants.

By not playing Planet Explorers you are denying yourself an amazingly fun game that has a ridiculous amount of gameplay depth. Replay value is everywhere so you (and hopefully your friends) will be playing the game for months to come.


  • A science fiction RPG with Minecraft style open world/sandbox features.
  • Multiple game modes (both single and multiplayer)
  • Great visual experience.
  • A very unique feel to the overall game.
  • Simply packed full of features and content.
