About The Game

Fringe Planet is a survival simulator. It is inspired by the likes of such epic games as RimWorld, Dwarf Fortress and Factorio.  It follows the story of six strangers who have been plucked from their lives and deposited in a frozen hellish world.  With no memories of who they are, or why they are here, they must attempt to survive and even tame the environment of Fringe Planet.

As they struggle against starvation, the cold and the harsh creatures that inhabit Fringe Planet they will slowly start to discover the secrets of this place.  They will start to remember who they are.  They will discover how to harness both the powers science and magic to better their lot. They will go from surviving to living.  And maybe they will attempt to escape this cursed place, or maybe they will decide on another goal.

Fringe Planet is designed to be a great story telling tool.  Various customisable story tellers will influence your game, throwing different events at the player, varying drop rates and providing a very unique play through every time.  Though there is a complex and detailed lore behind the game, and several end game goals – a player can decide to ignore these completely.  It is designed to be a rewarding sandbox game – that will let a player tell their own story.  The characters the player controls can either be procedurally generated, or can be customised with different attributes, appearances and back stories.

 

Lore

Fringe Planet has a deep and fascinating lore - the events surrounding the creation of The Void are unknown - as is it's actual location. All that is known is that The Void is filled with giant floating islands which have been drifting through infinity for eons. Some of these islands are populated by the natural fauna and flora of The Void, others have far more insidious inhabitants. It is known that through out the entire void a deep and complex web of magical fields exists. Power and spirits travel through this web.

None have returned from Fringe Planet. Most die. Some find other endings.
