    I have been wanting to make a development thread for a while but the game wasn't quite there yet. Finally I think I am at a good point to start logging my progress! So without further ado I present to you Surviving Titan, an open world, randomly generated sci-fi survival adventure game.

    You crash land on the planet Titan, suffering from amnesia and with the ships scanners unable to detect any signs of civilization you begin the task of exploring the planet looking for any signs of intelligent life. You are accompanied by a survival droid, standard issue for any escape pod. Their job is to keep you alive.

    The game features a completely randomly generated open world to explore, with 7 core biomes that piece it together. Each biome has it's owned unique landscape, resources and inhabitants (friendly or otherwise). Some crafting recipes require item's that can only be gathered from specific biomes so exploration is key.

    Here is a rough image of the current world biome map, it is still actively being improved but getting there -

    This game has a much large scope than anything I have ever made before, but also is alot more complete as I have iterated and improved mechanics from previous games. There are several tiers of crafting, with one of the final tiers giving you the ability to create a teleportation pad that allows you to move across the map almost instantly -

    The game currently features several skills for you to level up, including -

    Mining
    Smithing
    Woodcutting
    Farming
    Fishing

    Leveling up these skills grants you points that can be spent to unlock perks or crafting recipes as-well as other things. The system is not fully fleshed out yet but here is an example of what the final skill tree system might look like -

    Here is a brief look at some of the higher tier items in the game and things you can discover -

    I will be updating this thread with development and new features. If you have any ideas for the game please let me know.

    That is all now now!

    This looks really cool! Although it doesn't look very alien? Titan is a moon of Saturn... the screenshots seem to be setting up a "But we were on Earth all along!" kind of twist. Or maybe you're just using some preexisting survival-game art.

    Thank you for the kind words guys. The planet Titan is not really based on any astronomy, although I considering it at the beginning of the project. Just to be clear I am using an existing tile-set for the ground called timefantasy and modifying it for my needs.

    I have a couple new gifs today! Here is one of the cuter creatures you discover on Titan -

    And one of the more deadly! -

    I am working on adding a couple new crafting objects that I am pretty excited about, one of them is a beehive so you can maintain bee's that produce honey/wax.

    I will post an update shortly!

    Hiya guys,

    A couple new gifs today. I have been working on adding several new enemies to the game as-well as some general quality of life features.

    Some environments require protective clothing -

    New slime enemy type -

    I have been testing it on an android tablet this week too which was fun, controls still need some work!

    That is all for today!

    This sounds very similar to crashlands, which is a good game, and i mean it complimentary

    This looks realy good! But as others have said - it looks like "survival on a desert island" instead of on another planet. Maybe try some simple things like changing the color of the water or leaves. Adding some odd looking rocks. Oh and deffo change the color of the ground to something else than "sandy beach" :D

    Apart from that it looks awesome. I will try to give it a play this weekend and give you some proper feedback!

    edit - just realised there is no playable build. Oops! :D
