How do I install this?

Nodeverse is an in-development game about exploring a huge universe full of endless possibilities. Inspired by games like No Man's Sky, it is instead based on voxel mechanics. Some of the final playable mechanics are already implemented.

How to play

These are the instructions for playing this version of Nodeverse.

You will begin flying on a small spaceship. Use 'jump' (space by default), 'sneak' (shift by default) and the movement keys to control it. You can land the ship by pressing 'sneak', and lift up again by pressing 'jump' or unboard by pressing any movement key. Once landed, the ship can be modified, by digging or placing nodes and hull plates, or punching scaffold nodes to shape them.

If you fly high enough, you'll break out of the atmosphere and into outer space. You can return to the planet by flying lower using 'sneak'. There's also a GUI that you can open with the inventory button; this shows planets around you and, when in space, can be used to visit them.

In each planet, you can collect flora to advance your discovery gallery, which you can also access via the inventory button, and shows all the planets you've visited and the species you've collected.

Most planets contain precious loot in the form of colorful piñatas that drop new spaceship parts upon breaking. There is one piñata hidden somewhere on the surface of each planet. Find it and use those parts to customize your ship to your liking, or even build a new one.

How to help

This game is aimed to be a complex space exploration adventure... someday. For now, there are many ways to lend a hand and build it together:

  • Try it and report bugs!
  • Have an idea? Please tell the developer and discuss it!
  • Get your hands dirty. Art, code and documentation are welcome.



Do you recommend this game?

  • Good WIP No Man's Sky

    This game has potential and continues to improve.

    As it sits, I can recommend it to a general audience because it's a cool exploration experience on its own, and will inspire some new ideas for new-comers.

    If you are interested in this kind of game, you should reach out to what seems like a decently active game dev for a minetest game - they would probably appreicate the help.

  • Muy interesante

    Aunque le queda aun mas trabajo para ser un juego maduro, diria que podemos estar ante el nuevo No Man's Sky ?

  • Interesting.

    This is a cool idea.

  • Very good

    the new update is incredible, but dont have lights, or inventory, or storage, or any way to heal, which make pretty difficult for exploration, but it's going in a fantastic way already

  • Bad gameplay, good tech demo

    As a game, it is pretty much unplayable. But it shows off some beatiful features like the ability to modify your spaceship, and then depart with it. Also the multidimension space and it's map aren't bad. Might take some of this and create a space mod.
