What is a Tetrode? A tetrode is a vaccum tube that is used in electronics. Don't tell anyone, but we just used that for our game's name because it sounded cool. Tetrode will be released on August 30th. It is a experimental sandbox project made with Gamemaker Studio. In Tetrode you play as a mining robot, stranded on a deserted planet after your ship crashes. You have one objective. Create a sucessful colony, as it doesn't look like you are leaving any time soon.

The first version of Tetrode has been in development for 3 months and is semi-playable, including crafting, an inventory, enemies, skins, saves, weapons, combat, and much more! Multiplayer is planned for a later release, but we don't know when that is. A sign of friendly life will come in an upcoming update, adding even more fun to the mix! Look out for the next update!

So that's about it! We hope you enjoy it!


The Windows release is back on the site, so users looking for a more immersive experience can use it. The HTML build mainly works, but it is unstable and prone to errors like the inabillity to save and load worlds. Only use the HTML build if you are trying the game, or you use Linux/OSX.


Tetrode is now open source! Grab the Gamemaker project file here: http://tetrodesrc.yolasite.com/


I made a Google+ community to discuss Tetrode and other things. Check it out here: http://tinyurl.com/tetrodegplus
