Developed by Alaska-based Stage 2 Studios
for the PC, Lifeless Planet
is a 3D action adventure set to be published worldwide by Lace Games
later this year. The game puts players in the moon-boots of a volunteer astronaut on a one-way mission to a life-bearing planet far outside our solar system. But after a rough landing, the promise of a new Earth soon fades with the discovery that the planet he was to explore is now barren and inhospitable. Alone in this wasteland, his fellow astronauts missing and his oxygen tank leaking, the astronaut's situation turns desperate. He begins to explore the planet for his missing crew members... only to discover a deeper mystery: an abandoned Soviet-era laboratory. He must discover if this is really an extra-solar planet or he has been shuttled to a lonely region of Siberia as part of a deceptive propaganda stunt.
Lifeless Planet is now in beta testing - a batch of screenshots
and a video are available for your viewing pleasure.
