While at PAX West, Jason Bohn of Harcore Gamer went hands-on with Planetoid Pioneers, the metroidvania-like space crafter from independent developer Data Realms.  Jason was impressed by the ability to solve puzzles in diverse ways and commented on its sense of charm and distinct atmosphere.

“It looks weird in trailers and it plays weird, too. It’s a competent form of weird, though, that invites the player to delve deeper into a planet’s depths to see what they can find”, said Jason.

Planetoid Pioneers is currently in Early Access on Steam and can be purchased for $9.99 USD for the Game-Only Edition. The Contributor Edition can be purchased for $29.99 and gives players access to all the tools that the developers used to create all the content in the game.
