I have played a lot of survival games, but haven’t witnessed any game survival game like “Planet Nomads”. When I first saw the trailer of this game, it was quite difficult for me to believe that developers would be able to put all these features into a working game, but then I started playing this game and was literally amazed. Well, the name itself suggests the overall theme of the game and yes, you will be a planet nomad!
Planet Nomads is the story of a space wanderer, who lands on a strange planet due to unfortunate conditions. He has lost all his teammates and is the sole survivor. Just imagine that you are alone in a strange planet, and you literally have no idea what to do. The imagination is enough to raise goose bumps, but this is the ultimate truth that the lone survivor must deal with in different critical conditions.
The main objective of the game is to test the survival skills of the gamers. In order to play this game efficiently, a lot of practical sense of humour is highly necessary. And this the main reason why this game is so much addictive. To understand the game, it is very important to get involved in the game. This unique survival game was just released few days back, but it has managed to attract a lot of gamers all over the world.
The developers have designed an early access, which already offers several hours of gameplay and a lot of new features are on the way. I’ve spent around 12 hours in the early access version and I can say without any doubts that this game is fully playable even in a current state and it offers a fair amount of content for an early access game. However, it still needs some patience, as it sometimes might be a bit frustrating to deal with glitches and bugs, which are always part of a game in early phases of a development.
The game has been categorized into two segments. The first one is survival mode, in which the lone survivor has to take care of his survival needs such as stamina, water, food, and health. The crafting system is quite complex, yet it does not seem to be confusing even for new players. System of inventory, blueprints and crafting queue itself works surprisingly well and with predefined categories you don’t have to spend hours sorting your whole inventory by yourself. Apart from taking care of basic survival needs, it is also important to subdue the dangerous environment, which is full of hostile creatures. A lot of threats are associated with the environments which mainly include being eaten by unknown beasts, freeze to death, starving, and many other critical conditions
The second one is creative mode. In this mode, the survivor has to explore the whole planet in order to enhance the level of sustainability. His only companions are the protective suits and the particle manipulating tool. With the help of these two components, the survivor has to customize the environment according to his needs.
The graphics of this game are truly fascinating. The developers have managed to provide a royal look to the graphics. Once you are more familiar with the basic mechanics of the game, you start getting a feeling of a true lone survivor, which helps you to dive even deeper and more into it. An atmosphere of Planet Nomads universe is indeed vivid and fascinating.
Apart from the graphics, the audio tracks are also pleasant. Sound effects and music associated with the game influence and motivate you all the time.
Despite the fact for a newbie first few hours of playing might be a little bit too hard, definitely don’t stop at that time! Once you learn the basics, you will be rewarded with detailed, atmospheric environment full of interesting in-game features with exciting gameplay for long hours. Planet Nomads have a long way ahead to become a masterpiece of the survival genre, yet we see a big potential in this game and we definitely recommend you to keep an eye on this title!
