THE BIG PICTURE: PLANET ALPHA
Explore a beautiful alien platformer world in Planet Alpha
We never expected something so pretty and green to come out of the mind of someone who used to work on Hitman and Kane And Lynch 2, but Adrian Lazar has been beavering away on this stunning game for the last four years and is now teaming up with Team17 to bring it to the masses.
It’s a side-scrolling puzzle platformer set on alien planet full of space whales, curious plants that glow softly and garishly coloured vines. As you explore the planet you’ll uncover the ability to rotate and control the planet to overcome obstacles in your path, such as crumbling terrain. You’ll also learn that despite how beautiful everything might be there’s also something a little sinister going on in the background – tech going to war with nature, perhaps. It just goes to show that no matter how advanced your spaceship is it can still be taken out by a rogue flying whale. Even if it is hiding a dark secret we can’t wait to see more of this gorgeous planet. Planet Alpha will release at some point in 2018.
