A vast planet hidden in the outer reaches of space, ruins of a long extinct civilization - you awake in the wreck of mankind's first and only interstellar starship, lightyears away from earth. Soon to find that you are humanity's last hope of survival from a disaster. A disaster that was supposedly caused by the inhabitants of this very planet. As you explore strange landscapes, you can't shake off the feeling that you are not alone.
Xcylin is an RPG that puts you on a planet where you need to explore, craft and fight in order to survive.

Sorry, for some reason I didn't receive any updates from itch.io, so I overlooked your comments. I develop the game on my own, so it is a lot of work to keep track of everything. If you want your money back that can of course be arranged - but rest assured, that I'm working on the game day and night! Early-Access release is set for April 2017.
will the game be available this year
i have had the game 46 days now no sighn of devs or alpha
Why not disabling modding for the pre alpha, so people already get something to play when they buy it here?
In general this is a good idea, but Xcylin the game is also basically a mod, or rather a world template for the Xcylin engine, so I think disabling modding is not really an option. But I will look into it, maybe there is a way ...
i am really looking forward to this but i have bought the game to early why is there no pre alpha to play around in
We are working hard on Xcylin and could release an pre alpha version, but as Xcylin is moddable we don't want to release a version where the modding interface is not mostly finished. That would lead to modders being very disappointed when they need to completely rework their mods with later versions of the game. But rest assured that we will release Xcylin as soon as it is possible! :)
hi i just purchased when will this be released to play
Thank you for your purchase. We plan an alpha release later this year.
Please follow us on Twitter (@xcylin or @moebiusdev) to get the release as soon as it comes out. Of course you will also get the final build, once we release it!
my intel hd4000 could run minecraft at a decent rate, how do you thing my intel hd5500 will handle this game?
Xcylin uses better textures, special liquid shaders and also uses blocks that are not cube shaped, so I think the hd5500 will not handle this game very well :/ But I'm working on low-end settings, so maybe(!) it will be possible that Xcylin runs at 30 fps on a hd5500 later in the development.
I think we will start seeing a lot of voxel based games popping up and the connotation to minecraft will soon disappear when people discover the vaster potential of these type of games.
This doesn't look very original...
I guess you think that all blocky games are like Minecraft, right? That is about as true as the statement that all RTS games are like Command & Conquer. I hope you will revise your opinion once you have the opportunity to play the game. :)
