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.
that shits expensive to do. (8 minutes ago)
I'd rather stuff like glass reacted realistically via physics, than have realistic reflections and refraction via multiple light bounces (9 minutes ago)
rather than wasted processing power concentrating on stuff with little beneficial trade offs compared to hack techniques (11 minutes ago)
It's not entirely surprising, though. Hybrid rendering was always going to be the way forward. It depends how efficient it is, but I'd still rather devs do something with physics and AI (12 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: Remedy's tech demo just makes me want a Blade Runner 2049 game now. Yes, I think I'd probably get aroused if a BR2049 game were announced by them using that tech. (13 minutes ago)
@crookedmind: so is people overreacting on the steam reviews like usual? (4 Hours ago)
@droezelke: what is plagiarized exactly? they ripped models and tracks from another game? because it just looks like another futuristic racer to me? (4 Hours ago)
