New Video for Lifeless Planet Beta
News from Lace Games and Stage 2 Studios is that Lifeless Planet, the highly anticipated third-person action-adventure game hit beta for PC. It is available on Steam at the moment as an Early Access Game, so be warned. To accompany the beta, a new video has been released.
In case you were wondering whether or not it is worth the buy, the first impressions from a variety of gamers, some way into the game already, are sure to convince you. To place the game in context, the story is as follows:
While seeking life on a distant planet, a skeptical astronaut discovers an abandoned Russian laboratory and suspects his mission is a hoax until a mysterious young woman saves him from a strange and deadly phenomenon…
The game appears to be quite the atmosphere shocker and absolutely mesmerizing in its sound, environment, gameplay, and a mysterious (and perhaps dark) mission. Impressively, David Board, an Alaskan-based employee at Stage 2 Studios, single-handedly developedÂ Lifeless Planet.Â His inspiration stems from a love of classic sci-fi movies and TV shows from the 1950s-1960s. This is interesting since the modern perspective of sci-fi/horror is altogether different from the portrayal of the genre in the mid-1900s. Judging by the images and video released about the game, there seems to be a Cold War influence, experiments and secret missions are implied to underline the story.Â Lifeless Planet looks to be an impressive game.Â The no-so-modernized town coupled with the planets own natural scenes only adds to the games already captivating atmosphere.
