Something like four months ago, we told you about Lifeless Planet, an independent game which looked really promising in many aspects. Last Friday, developer David Board was kind enough to contact us to propose immediate access to the alpha demo which was shown at PAX Prime. We couldn't miss such an opportunity to share the two gameplay videos we made today. Although this version of the game is far from being final, there is clearly something mesmerizing about exploring this desolate planet. With a mix of exploration, platform, puzzles and adventure, this could be quite an exotic experience for all those wishing to boldly go where no man has gone before.
What you should know:
• The game will feature 20 levels, which will offer a mix of open and more linear environments. We've been told there will be much variety in the landscapes.
• Exploration will be at the core of gameplay and will always be rewarded.
• There should be an Early Access version of the game on Steam soon. It will include a few levels. We will propose a full preview as soon as it's available.
This VR rhythm game looks pretty fun: [url] (3 Hours ago)
that's a pretty big deal, as its probably the biggest stumbling block for the tech. (6 Hours ago)
Stuff like inside out tracking and eye tracking, as well as motion sickness solutions should be in place. We've already got a product in development that claims to have eradicated that already (6 Hours ago)
The potential of it is massive. More so than what traditional gaming now is. Second gen is going to be very interesting. (6 Hours ago)
We're sort of being spoon fed bit sized "experiences" that either work or don't. I suppose that's part of the freshness of it, though. I just wish some big devs would get more involved. (6 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Ironically, though, the VR scene is also playing it safe. Too safe. There's not enough big risk titles like RE7. (6 Hours ago)
I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (9 Hours ago)
