    Hi Indiegamer! 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++)



    Trailer






    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!

    Thank you :)

    It has been a while we didn’t review the game’s situation, so here is a big summary.

    The game is actually in v0.4 and from now until Friday, if everything goes right, a new patch will be coming with a REAL tutorial, and the Quest/Game system (Which won’t be perfect for now but pretty much advanced)

    Why did it take so long? Because we also worked on multiplayer in anticipation of the official early access release on Steam, around mid-March/early April! You will soon be able to play with your friends!(v0.5)

    Another good news, we are currently working of the translation of the game, so you will soon have the game in:


    - English
    - French
    - German
    - Portuguese BR
    - Swedish
    - Russian
    - Spanish
    - Simplified Chinese
    - Japanese
    - South Korean
    - Polish
    - Italian
    - Dutch

    And more languages coming next! We will also provide the text files to anyone willing to translate into any language not already present in the game.

    We know we are late, but we didn’t want to give you an empty game, or something that doesn’t run well. Compared to what we predicted, we implemented several features that weren’t expected first on the beta, and optimized the game so it could run on older computers (We still have work to do on that subject, others performance update will be release in a near future!)

    You can find the game’s road map here :

    Also, some news creations!
