The PlayCorp development studio was founded by engineers with a natural motivation and passion for cutting edge technology, leading to years of research and development to establish and execute the PlayCorp vision. Beyond Contact was born from the fruit of that passion with a focus on issues such as social and environmental responsibility.
Chris Mosley, CEO of Playcorp, has stated that:
“Beyond Contact is an optimistic vision of the future. Imagine humanity thriving and even helping other species survive, because diversity is the key to thriving. Bringing together a survival game and a story presented many unique design challenges, some of them ongoing. Integrating all of this into a cooperative multiplayer experience where players must work with each other is the next big challenge heading into a full release early next year. We now have a platform that we can use to make all of our dreams for the game come true as we continue to fill and expand the world of Beyond Contact and Space Corps. “
