Lightyear Frontier is an adventure farming game that looks like a combination of No Man's Sky and Stardew Valley. This is a result of cooperation between Frame Break and Amplifier Game Invest.


In Lightyear Frontier we find ourselves on an alien planet, which surface we explore using a powerful mech. During the game we have to take care not only to make this picturesque globe our new home, but also to learn its secrets and find out more about the civilization that once inhabited it and left behind mysterious structures.


Lightyear Frontier gives us a vast open world. We can observe the action here both from a first person perspective (FPP) as well as from a TPP. During the game we have various duties on our shoulders. We acquire useful resources and cultivate the land on which we plant different crops (their range expands as we progress). In addition, the globe is inhabited by various animals, which we can tame and breed, and even try to combine with their genetics. With time, we gather enough supplies to be able to construct our first headquarters. As we progress, we expand it, building more and more advanced structures within it. Although it all sounds quite idyllic, from time to time the planet can give us a hard time. The weather (which changes in a realistic way) can be violent and the changing seasons mean that we have to constantly keep an eye on what's happening on the farm.

We do all this sitting behind the wheel of a huge mech. Like a futuristic tractor it serves us both for exploration and work on the farm. With its help we cut down trees and split stones, or even water the plants and mow the crops. As we progress, we gain various upgrades that increase its capabilities.

Of course, our stay on the alien planet is not only about work on the farm. This picturesque globe is full of secrets hidden in ancient buildings left by the ancient civilization. Exploring them, we learn more about the planet and its previous inhabitants.
