Introducing Beyond Contact, a fiercely formidable survival game, inspired by the art and style of pulp science-fiction comics, the moral dilemmas of contemporary science-fiction films, and the unforgiving gameplay of survival genre classics, now available via Steam Early Access.

Taking place on the often mysterious and always deadly, procedurally-generated, alien world of Ketern, Beyond Contact features exploration and discovery, a robust system of research and crafting, intuitive base building and defense, farming and creature feeding, narrative-driven objectives to save the inhabitants of the planet, and enough flora, fauna, extreme weather, and environmental hazards to kill even the toughest players 1000 times over... and trust us if the planet gets the chance, it will.

Play Your Way
Beyond Contact offers Campaign and Endless game modes for both solo and cooperative multiplayer experiences.

Dynamic 3D Engine

Devolving World
Ripped apart by an onslaught of dark rifts, Ketern's once-thriving biomes are being overtaken by dangerous hazards and chaotic weather fallout. Do you have what it takes to survive?

Hard to get a grasp on what the game actually was but here's a walkthrough. Seems to be a top-down-No-Mans-Sky-Em-Up.
