Starfield meets Minecraft in stunningly huge open world game you can play free now

Starfield may have split opinion, but there’s a lot of fun to be had if you’re dedicated enough to build and run your own outpost network. If that’s something that appeals to you, you might want to take a look at the delightful upcoming PlanetSmith which blends that idea with the aesthetic of Minecraft to create an end product that looks like something we’ll be able to while away hours in.

Developed by Incandescent Games, PlanetSmith is set to launch later this year. It pitches itself as a spherical sandbox game that offers “unique exploration and creative building”. You’ll be able to journey into various procedurally generated voxel worlds that “defy conventional limits of block building”. Explore the galaxy to find the perfect planet for you, or craft your very own creation. The options are quite literally endless.

Take a look at PlanetSmith in action below.

“Dive into a tranquil realm of boundless creativity with our Creative Mode. Step into a world where your imagination sets the course – sculpt landscapes, erect monumental structures, craft intricate houses, or even breathe life into colossal characters,” the synopsis reads. “The possibilities are exclusively yours to define. Unleash your artistic spirit, design awe-inspiring monuments, and then proudly showcase your creations, inviting others to marvel at your ingenuity.”

You can both visit and craft a variety of biomes, including “polar biomes, scorching equatorial deserts, large continents to conquer, and charming clusters of islands dotting deep blue oceans,” so PlanetSmith’s developers have certainly considered variety. You’ll be tasked with foraging for supplies to build shelters in order to survive, including mining below each planet’s surface. The better your foraging skills become, the more complex items you’ll be able to craft.

While PlanetSmith may not be out just yet (nor do we have a release date), you can currently dive into a demo as a part of the ongoing Steam Next Fest. To get involved, simply head on over to PlanetSmith’s page on the Steam store and download the demo to dive in.
