Press Quotes

IndieGameMag: “In gaming land, players can be – and see – anything; the only limits are imagination. Aiming to take this concept to new dimensions is Tethys Interactive’s Astral Terra.”

Two Dash Stash: “With the constantly changing worlds there is no limit to the wonders that Astral Terra can provide. It’s rare that a game truly leaves me in awe of what they’re doing. Astral Terra is getting to that point. The thought of ever-changing worlds, that I can change on a whim is very intriguing. I hope it lives up to its potential.”

United Front Gaming: “If you asked me a year ago if I liked voxel-based, sandbox gaming (think Minecraft), I would have said absolutely not…One of the standout features is this notion of smooth voxels; the world can be manipulated real time as if you were the developer mapping out the environment. It reminds me a little of Microsoft’s Project Spark.”

Softpedia: “The guys from Tethys Interactive are trying to provide, through this RPG, a one of a kind experience as everything in the game, starting from the skills that players learn to the world, is unique and customizable…What makes the game so interesting is that it offers the possibility to shape the world that you are in.”

Indie RPGs: “Morrowind meets Minecraft; that’s my first impression looking at this open-world 3D aRPG. The graphics are nicer than in either of these games, but it still manages to implement Minecraft’s world creation and destruction mechanics. That it does so in a truly alien-looking, open-ended fantasy world reminiscent of The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind is icing on the proverbial cake.”

Game Description

Explore, Adventure, Craft, Build, Survive.

How will you shape your world?

Astral Terra is a fantasy-themed sandbox world-crafting game for PC with RPG elements. Set in a beautiful smooth voxel world that’s generated on the fly and completely editable, no two players will have the same experience, as everything from the skills you learn to the world you play in is fully unique and customizable. Explore the endless realm of the Fae Sanctum as a Planar Warden and pick out a piece of land to build your fortress via your unlimited power to terraform and build. Gather resources for crafting and building or just explore the various biomes for the sake of discovery. From character progression with abilities and powers, to the terrains and the environments, everything is procedural and editable! Shape your world and your character the way YOU desire! Feel free to invite or join friends to collaborate, Astral Terra allows the player to host their game online.
