Play Terraforming Earth Demo v0.4.45!

⏬ Windows 32-bit ⏬ macOS

How fast can you restore life on Earth?

This is just a demo and doesn't represent the final product. Some of the game art is still placeholder. Also, there will be a story. The core mechanics will not change that much in the future. One thing looks sure: this game will always stay a procedurally generated 2D puzzle-platformer.

Sending Feedback 💬

Please tell us about your play on the #feedback channel on our Discord server! Feedback regarding usability and game feel is extra super useful at this stage. Thanks for playing! ❤️

We prefer Discord #general-hu, #feedback, #issues, although you can also reach us via the following methods.

From v0.3.0 the game is also collecting anonymous usage data, like how much you play, which levels you complete, number of deaths, etc. Collecting this data is important for making the game experience better. If this bothers you, please tell me.

Notes for veteran players 🧙‍♀️

  1. Since v0.3.13, if you run out of battery, the whole crew dies. At least you get 100% battery back!

Pre-Alpha Hall of Fame 🏆‍

The Terraforming output is racked up 10x in the Alpha Demo, so it ends early. We are working on a proper speed-running edition, where the wall-clock counts instead of the game-clock. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, here's a list of our pre-alpha pioneers' historic achievements.

Story 🤖

So suddenly all life disappears from Earth. What does this have to do with you? Watch this poor man's intro video to learn more about the story.

Known issues 🐛

  1. Windows Defender SmartScreen and macOS prevents running the game becasue we don't have enough downloads yet. Please just run the game anyway. If enough players download the game, we'll get into their databases.
  2. Sometimes I see framerate drops. You can see an FPS counter in the lower right corner. Please tell me if it's lower than 60 on your machine.
  3. Rewind powerup counting is a bit broken. Sometimes you get less than you pick up. Sorry, time travel is difficult 🤷‍♂️.
  4. There is one known special case when the level generator creates an unsolvable level. It's when you need to hijack an enemy robot with an elevator, but the pressure plate activating the elevator is right next to the elevator so the hijacked robot takes itself back up. Facepalm.

Unknown issues 🚨

  1. Sometimes you will get a blue screen with a stack trace. Congratulations, you caught a bug. The game collects these errors, however it's very useful if you tell us what you did to cause the error on the #issues channel on Discord server.
  2. If you think you found an unsolvable level, you might be right! Please share the level URL with us on Discord (Pause menu > Share this level).

We are conducting at least one playtest every week. This game is built by playtesters, we are just synthesising their ideas into a coherent game. Huge thanks to all!
