Space Western RPG ‘Exoplanet: First Contact’ Looking for Kickstarter Funding

Tired of RPGs with high fantasy settings? Looking for something a bit more rustic? Perhaps Exoplanet: First Contact is what you’ve been waiting for.

This upcoming game by Alersteam combines sci-fi with western sensibilities in a RPG inspired by The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind and Firefly. Players must battle against enemies, chat with NPCs to get what they need, and even ensure protagonist Jack gets the food, water, and shelter needed to survive the harsh environment.

Exoplanet: First Contact is the first chapter in a series of planned episodic releases. They’re asking for $45,000 on Kickstarter to complete First Contact on PC. Luckily, the game was already Greenlit for Steam.
