Here is an overview of the game, via 505 Games:


Journey to the Savage Planet is an upbeat first-person adventure and exploration game set in a bright and colorful alien world filled with weird and wonderful creatures. As an employee of Kindred Aerospace, which proudly touts its rating as the “4th Best Interstellar Exploration Company,” players are dropped onto the uncharted planet AR-Y 26, deep in a fictitious, far-away corner of the universe. Launched with high hopes but little equipment and no real plan, players are invited to explore, catalog alien flora and fauna and determine if this strange planet is fit for human habitation.

Key Features

  • Two-Player Online Co-Op – Play solo or bring a friend. Onward to adventure!
  • Explore, Fight, and Catalog – Survey four different Biomes on Planet AR-Y 26. Scan and catalog alien flora and fauna at your own pace.

  • Upgrade to Advance – Access new areas by upgrading your tools including a laser pistol, a rocket pack for boost jumps, rocket boots for swift descents and more. Your trusty 3D printer will turn any old space trash you discover into useful items!
