Explore a vast universe of connected worlds. Build an empire with friends, and defend it against your enemies. Make your mark in Oort Online.

Whether you are a seasoned hunter, a weathered explorer, a shrewd trader or a natural born fighter, there is a place for you in the massive connected universe that makes up Oort Online. Watch the sunrise on one world before hunting down epic Titans on another. Explore caverns on your own or raid temples with your guild. Mine, trade or fight Protectors for resources and search for elusive Oort Stones. Build a shop and trade your treasures, or create a Portal and expand your reach in the universe of Oort Online.

Oort Online is a massively multiplayer game set in a sandbox universe of connected voxel worlds. We want you to be a big part of the development process. We've provided a discussion forum, comments section and expanding FAQ and we're going to give backers a system to vote on upcoming features. Developed by a team of games industry veterans, Oort Online is available for instant access and pre-purchase today. Read on to explore the features of Oort Online.

Explore worlds with unique appearances, resources, creatures and history. Search for rare loot, craft gear and trade items with your friends.

Explore the land, explore the world, explore the entire, ever-expanding Oort Online universe. Mine deep underground, discover mysterious abandoned ruins, search far and wide for the rarest crafting materials and create the most fantastic items to aid you and your friends in an epic adventure. Travel to different worlds and survive in a new environment with real players and challenges. Stockpile abundant resources from your world and trade them with players in other worlds.

Search for deposits of rare resources, lost artifacts and loot. Find ancient Portals used by the Oort race and open a gateway to the vast universe.

You live in a connected universe of epic proportions and unexplainable history, once dominated by a long extinct race, The Oort.

The universe is vast and disparate. Every world is uniquely different, yet somehow they share common artifacts. Grandiose temples and monuments containing ancient technology exist simultaneously and inexplicably across all worlds. An untouched universe, selfishly meddled with by a race of explorers, The Oort. Now extinct, all that remains is their legacy.

By harnessing artifacts left behind, your people have created Portals between worlds. Long after the time of The Oort, all species of the universe live, build, trade and fight together. The universe is yours to explore.

You live in a connected universe of epic proportions and unexplainable history, once dominated by a long extinct race, The Oort.

Discover, hunt and catch the crossbred creatures across the Oort Online universe and bring them back to your home world.

Oort Online is populated with strange breeds of loveable creatures. Since the creation of Portals by The Oort, creatures from different worlds have been free to roam throughout the universe and breed. This has resulted in some seriously odd wildlife.

Many creatures can be captured, bred and killed for food. The others are bad tempered and probably best avoided. Collect your favourite creatures from across the universe by leading them through Portals back to your home world.

Discover, hunt and catch the crossbred creatures across the Oort Online universe and bring them back to your home world.

Every world in the universe of Oort Online is unique, with different wildlife, terrain, colours, resources, climates, real players and their creations.

Discover worlds rich in resources guarded by fierce Protectors.

Ocean worlds where land is scarce and players live on small islands and atolls; mountain worlds where mines dominate the landscape and travel is difficult; desert worlds where minerals and metals are common, but food is rare and survival is harsh.

The next Portal you build could be a gateway to a world of plenty or poverty. Don't venture out alone or unprepared, and be ready to fight!

Every world in the universe of Oort Online is unique, with different wildlife, terrain, colours, resources, climates, real players and their creations.

Fight The Protectors with an arsenal of craftable weapons. Team up with friends to hunt massive Titans and loot the treasures of lost Oort Temples.

Equip your hero with crafted weapons and armour then head off on an adventure. Fight The Protectors to gain loot, experience and improve your prowess in combat. Join with your friends to take on bigger Protectors and gain better rewards. Gather every player you can find and take on the fearsome Titans.

Band together with your friends and form a guild. Fight groups of rival players for land and valuable resources on your world and beyond. Engage in epic ranged, melee and magical combat using a vast array of weaponry.

The Protectors continue to guard the universe long after their creators, the Oort, became extinct. They’re deadly, and they see you as a threat.

Protectors come in five classes: Brutes (1), Hurlers (2), Rawks (3), Oogres (4) and Titans.

Brutes use blunt clubs to smash and charge at opponents. Hurlers throw deadly balls of fire, ice and earth. Oogres carve out and throw entire blocks and destroy players or landscapes with their gigantic fists. Rawks swoop fast, attack at speed and in packs.

The greatest Protectors of all are extremely rare and cannot be taken down alone: Titans.

The Protectors continue to guard the universe long after their creators, the Oort, became extinct. They’re deadly, and they see you as a threat.

Titans are the deadliest of The Protectors, standing watch over the rarest loot. Ten times bigger than you, Titans cannot be taken down alone.

Some worlds are home to a Titan, sworn to defend an ancient Oort Temple containing the rarest resources and items, but they're not easy to find. Grab some friends, divide across the world and search for Oort Temples.

Titans are incredibly aggressive and territorial. Once you've located an Oort Temple the fight begins. Don't expect it to be an easy task, taking down a Titan requires strategy, time, planning and serious guts.

Titans are the deadliest of The Protectors, standing watch over the rarest loot. Ten times bigger than you, Titans cannot be taken down alone.

Craft weapons, tools and equipment from resources found throughout the universe. Be prepared, you never know what’s lurking through the next Portal…

Craft bows, spears, crossbows, swords, clubs, staffs and more using the streamlined crafting interface. Add a rare material to the modifier slot when you're crafting and discover which materials enhance recipes (adding damage, durability, range or speed).

Before you craft anything you'll need to gather some resources. Hammers, axes and shovels will help you collect almost anything you can find. Equipment like jetpacks, grappling hooks and rope ladders will enable you traverse the world and reach the most valuable resources.

Craft weapons, tools and equipment from resources found throughout the universe. Be prepared, you never know what’s lurking through the next Portal…

Claim land using Beacons and decide how to rule it. Invite your friends, join territories and build Portals to connect with other worlds and players.

A universe of players await your creative talents, no creation will go unseen. Build, craft and create almost anything you can think of. If you're a born creator you can even place Blueprint blocks for your friends or other players to fill in. Blueprint helpers will receive gold for every block contributed.

Protect your creations by claiming land using a Beacon. Now it's yours, build a home to store your possessions and survive from The Protectors. Join forces with your friends to create player run cities, and attract other players from all corners of the Oort Online universe.

Create pathways across the universe using Portals. Portals are doorways between two locations on different worlds, allowing instant travel.

Portals are doorways that physically link worlds across the universe. Search for Oort Stone and place it to create an entrance, then choose where you want it to go.

If your friend lives on another world (the Oort Online equivalent of a server) you can link your homes with a Portal and be as close as neighbours. If you want to explore new realms then open a Portal to a random or undiscovered world.

Riches, mystery, danger and new friends await!

Create pathways across the universe using Portals. Portals are doorways between two locations on different worlds, allowing instant travel.

Build shortcuts, traps, people cannons and more using Warps. Warps create doorways between two locations on a single world.

Warps are short distance portals that transport players between two locations on the same world. Search for Warp Stone and place it to create an entrance, then do the same to create an exit.

Warps can be used to create helpful shortcuts to locations like underground mines or a nearby friend's home. You can even use them as people cannons! Build a Warp entrance at the bottom of a hole, an exit facing in the direction you want to go and jump in! Infinite drops, impossible rooms and secret doors, Warps are a lot of fun!

Build shortcuts, traps, people cannons and more using Warps. Warps create doorways between two locations on a single world.

Place Beacons to claim land and protect your creations. Beacons allow you to choose who can and can’t visit or build on your land.

The universe of Oort Online is open for everyone to explore. Create an awe inspiring structure, a work of art or a well stocked shop and anyone can visit.

Each player is entitled to craft a number of Beacons that can be used to claim and control land, allowing the owner to decide whether other players, friends or guild members can alter or add to the existing area. Combine Beacons with your friends to found a settlement and share land.

Beacons can even be used to secure strategic resources or locations. Find a rich resource deposit and claim it before anyone else, then set up a shop on the surface and sell the goods.

Place Beacons to claim land and protect your creations. Beacons allow you to choose who can and can’t visit or build on your land.

Survive an online universe where everyone is connected. Amass gold, gear, connections, power and become loved… or feared.

Oort Online is a universe populated by real players. How you act defines who you are. Every world is harsh alone, find friends and share resources to increase your chances of survival.

Claim a source for loot or rare resources and players will flock from across the universe to trade with you. Gather wealth, land, resources and share them with new or needy players and the universe will learn of your good deeds. Form a guild for profit and claim strategic locations and travel routes to dominate your world, but watch your back...

Start a war with rival guilds and players who become a threat to your home world and become a force for good or evil.

Join forces with other players and share resources, land and power by forming a guild. Fight with rival guilds for experience and power!

Together you’re stronger! Join with other players or start your own guild and gain access to monetary benefits, shops and land.

Team up and build sprawling capital cities, interconnected Portal networks, shops and hub worlds that players from across the universe will flock to visit.

The more members, gold and land your guild controls, the higher you’ll rise on the guild leaderboard. Compete with other guilds to become the greatest, most powerful guild in the universe.

Join forces with other players and share resources, land and power by forming a guild. Fight with rival guilds for experience and power!

Collect gold by slaying Protectors, rival players or selling items. Use it to trade, fast-track your way to better gear, or donate it to your guild.

As you progress through the universe of Oort Online you’ll collect gold. Gold can be used to trade with other players for resources, items, tools and weapons. Donate gold to your guild and it can be used to fund new build projects, Portals, stocking communal supplies and helping new guild members.

Gain more gold by taking advantage of resource imbalance. Gather prevalent resources on your world and sell them on other worlds where it's scarce. You can even charge players gold to enter your claims. Create a jaw-dropping structure and charge for entrance, or carve a convenient path through a mountain and charge players a toll to pass through.

Collect gold by slaying Protectors, rival players or selling items. Use it to trade, fast-track your way to better gear, or donate it to your guild.

Rent a personal server, choose a world, decide how it’s run and who can join.

To gain ultimate control, sign up for a personal server.

When you rent a server you can choose from a number of world options, from the colour of a sunset, to the height of mountains and especially the little fiddly bits around the fjords.

Personal server rental also gives you access to permissions and control over who can and can’t place Beacons on your world.

Rent a personal server, choose a world, decide how it’s run and who can join.

Voxels like you’ve never seen before. Powered by the Beautiful Voxel
Engine for Windows, Mac and Linux.
Built by world class engineers.

The many worlds of Oort Online are procedurally generated and rendered using our Beautiful Voxel Engine.

The engine allows for world generation with unlimited colour combinations, sloping terrain, organic variations in shape and orientation, complex underground cave systems, dynamic weather, extreme verticality and highly variable terrain generation unique to each planet.

The Beautiful Voxel Renderer gives life to Oort Online worlds with breathtaking draw distances, advanced level of detail scaling, real-time reflections, bloom, volumetric fog, depth of field, HDR lighting and god rays.

A sophisticated world generator capable of creating epic worlds from thousands of different terrain properties and hundreds of block types.

In Oort Online, no two worlds are the same.

Worlds are procedurally generated using hundreds of different parameters to achieve giant chasms, towering mountains, twisting alien terrain, floating islands and complex underground cave systems.

Each world is formed of a multitude of biomes and dynamic weather systems based on the environment of the world.

A sophisticated world generator capable of creating epic worlds from thousands of different terrain properties and hundreds of block types.

The diverse universe of Oort Online are constructed out of billions of blocks. There are hundreds of block types, each with different behaviours and properties

Worlds are generated from blocks with distinct properties and behaviours such as friction, hardness, bounciness, colour variance, liquidity, particles, slope, deformation and more.

Life has evolved differently across the universe. Grass, trees, plants, rocks and more can be a completely different colour on other worlds. If you prefer one type of grass shade, bring it back to your home and plant it there.

As Oort Online matures more materials will be added, increasing the palette of block types and crafting recipes over time.

Making a great game takes a lot of time and money. This site shows the vision of the game we want to create. As part of the development process the project has been divided into manageable sets of features. After we implement each set of features we will release a new version of the game for qualifying backers to play. In late 2015 we plan on launching a version of the game through outlets such as Steam that includes all of the features we have funded through this process.

We're already hard at work on the next set of features for the game, but for the next set we're going to ask all paying backers to vote on what they want us to implement next. We're giving you a voice to choose the direction of the game. Back the game and vote on what YOU want to see next!

We want to keep adding to Oort Online to make it a place to visit with your friends for years to come. So, we'll continue designing systems, prototyping mechanics and working with our players. But whatever funding target we achieve, you will receive a playable version of Oort Online.

News: Welcome to Oort Online and Wonderstruck

30/7/14

We’re Wonderstruck, and it’s launch day for our new crowdfunding project, Oort Online. This is just the first...

The Team

Who are Wonderstruck

Wonderstruck was founded in 2012 by ex-Lionhead and EA veterans. We're a team of artists, designers and engineers who love to make online games. We released our first game Polycraft last year, and some of the team are also working on The Marvellous Miss Take. You can follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

The team making Oort Online

The core team within Wonderstruck making Oort Online is about 6 people. There's a lot more us (you can see above) working on various other projects (like The Marvellous Miss Take). We can grow and shrink the team to requirement: if we need artists, engineers, testers or designers for a feature (or vice versa) we can rearrange the team. This flexibility should allow us to deliver new features for Oort Online as efficiently as possible.

Why we're making Oort Online

We love voxel and procedural games! Minecraft, Vox, BrogueInfiniminer, Cube World, Stonehearth, Spore, Trove, 7 Days to Die, TerrariaStarbound (and many more). We believe that these games have sparked the creation of a new genre, full of opportunities and a rapidly growing fan base.

We're making features that we've wanted in a voxel game for a long, long time. Oort Online is an always connected, persistent voxel universe with a brave new art style and tons of fun gameplay innovations. Keep an eye on our News section to see how we do things differently.

We've made lots of games!

This isn't our first rodeo, it's not even our thirtieth. Our combined games industry experience amounts to hundreds of years and we've made a lot of fun games.

We're based in Guildford, UK

We're based in the UK heart of the games industry, Guildford. Our neighbours are Hello Games, Media Molecule, Lionhead, EA, Fireproof, 22Cans, Born Ready Games, Rodeo Games, Supermassive (and many more, sorry if we missed you)!
