Perpetuum is a now free-to-play, persistent, sandbox, single server, massively multiplayer sci-fi rpg (MMORPG). Control huge robots and mechs to gain access to an alien planet’s resources and knowledge, amass huge wealth, or even claim part of the world for yourself using terraforming and complex infrastructure. The game became free on August 04, 2021 with the studio releasing a standalone server app that anyone can use to set up a private Perpetuum server where others can join and play together. They also released the source code for the server so that the Perpetuum community can further development and bug fixing.
Sci-Fi Setting – Perpetuum is set in a unique sci-fi environment inhabited by robots and alien technology.

Industry – Perpetuum features a complex, multi-tier industrial system that enables players to have both small and large scale industrial operations.
Economy – The economy is completely player driven. Other than basic items, everything on the market is manufactured by players, the prices dictated by supply and demand.
Player-Built Infrastructure – Players are able to raise their own settlements in the unoccupied areas of the Perpetuum world, where they are able to enforce their own rules as they see fit.
Terraforming – Players are able to form the world of Nia as they see fit to aid their goals. The terrain can be raised or lowered in certain areas and thus settlements can be protected by intricate strongholds, and temporary shelters can be created in the heat of battle to protect vulnerable allies. It’s all up to the player’s imagination.
Character Progression – Time-based character progression requires no grind and provides a level playing field for casual and hardcore players alike.
