Latest Developer Update
“We’ve implemented Flying bases! You’re the commander and get to order your base around. You´ll have to point a location on the map, and the base will head towards this location. Julian, our developer, has written a neat little script that renders the map and allows you to zoom into it and pan around. This also saves us a lot of work since we no longer have to create maps manually in photoshop.
So how do you get to your flying base? You can land it, but it still might be a bit difficult. That’s why we’ve added jetpacks for the players! They´re pretty high tier, and your boost is limited and depends on the crafting quality. We didn’t stop at the player jetpacks and decided to implement jumpjet modules for the mechs!,” says Sebastian Kaulitzki, Executive Producer at Brainstone Games GmbH .

The game transports players into an alien rich where they’ll experience exciting FPS gameplay allowing them to compete with each other or band together in factions to endure the difficult challenges that may unfold.
Pantropy has no micro-transactions or in-game purchases. It returns to the roots of online gaming where players earn rewards through skill and determination, not dollars. In order to gear up, players must scavenge for resources to craft tools, weapons, armor, vehicles, and buildings to protect themselves from the vicious alien fauna.
