Unlimited Terraforming and Building in your own Procedurally Generated Smooth Voxel World.
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 and survival 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! Play alone in single player offline mode or or join friends in multiplayer online mode to collaborate. Astral Terra has automatic online hosting of your world with no external server setup, with options for worlds to be public, password protected or private.

[1 THE BEGINNING]
In the beginning there was the formless warm gray.
There was neither light nor darkness, nor form nor striving.
Yet in time, there was the slightest movement in the gray.

Over eons of uncounted time, the gray gathered itself in a single place.
A thing like a smooth gray egg coalesced, then shrunk and contracted until in an explosive burst,
The Two were born: One of Light, the Other of Darkness.
The Great Lovers, Lakana the White, Goddess of Light and Order, and
Visaku the Black, God of Darkness and Chaos, blossomed forth into the universe.
[2 THE FIRST CHILDREN]
In the fullness of time, the Two begat the First Children. The Firstborn was enigmatic.
They named him Davanu, and tall and proud,
Crowned with mighty horns and lusting always for power.
Red is his color.
Next in their line was Da’lea the Green, joyful and merciful,
Prone to rapid change in mood, but mighty in her generosity and mirth.
Finally, in a pregnancy that nearly killed Lakana were born the Four:
Ravanyx the Golden, fiery in both temperament and appearance;
Vaya the color of Sky, fast and effortless in motion, controlled by none;
Nitluru the Brown, dwarfed and sturdy, slow to anger, but mighty in wrath;
And Tagaryl, green like the Sea, cold and deep, filled with secrets...
