Planet Update Launch and PC Version Announcement

It’s been a while. There’s some exciting news.

First, the 1.2 patch (“Planet Update”) has been released to the App Store and Play Store. Full patch notes at the end of this post, but this patch is mostly about refining and improving the planet generator with more content and better text generation, to realize the promise of the game better. You should see a better distribution of details in planets, less repetition, and also some new quirks and features for planets.

Second, I’m happy to announce that Voyageur will be getting a PC (Windows and Linux) release late in 2017. This release will have all of the same gameplay and content as the mobile version, but with a new mouse-friendly interface. The release of this PC version will coincide with the 1.3 version of the game, so all of the new story and crew content in that will be available on PC on release and as a free update for mobile players at the same time.

I leave you with the full patch notes for version 1.2:

  • Added a bonus event; meet an old voyageur and listen to their tale of woe
  • Added planetary quirks: ring systems, large moons, and planets orbiting gas giants
  • Added metallic planets
  • More planet description content
  • Significant adjustments to the planet description generator to improve descriptions and make them more varied.
  • Various bugfixes
