GSY Preview PS4 Xbox One Switch PC

It's September 4th and it's going to be a busy day on Gamersyde. This morning, we'll start with a little treat we've had in store for you for a little while: homemade videos of PLANET ALPHA. Get ready to be visually amazed by this descendant of Another World / Out of this World.
Note: The videos you will find inside were recorded a couple of weeks ago, just before Gamescom. We should have some Xbox One footage to share soon.

What is PLANET ALPHA exactly?

Although the game opens up with neither cutscenes nor information about the story, it is hard not to think of Eric Chahi's Another World (also known as Out of this World) when discovering PLANET ALPHA for the first time. The main character seems to be stranded on an unknown planet, he's wounded but we have no idea what happened to him. After he has recovered from his injuries, he starts exploring his surroundings, introducing us to the gorgeous world that is PLANET ALPHA. Everything seems to be peaceful and quiet, but it is not going to last very long, as some threatening robots will soon land on the planet in an attempt to invade it. The hero will then have to sneak past his enemies to avoid being killed, but his agility and brain will also be vital to his progression, which does not come as a surprise in a side-scrolling platform adventure game. Prepare to die a lot like in Limbo or Inside (or Another World for that matter) and to have your breath taken away by the impressive visuals. Clearly, Unreal Engine 4 has been put to good use to create this exotic and strange world. We have only played the very beginning of the game, but we're already under its spell. We don't know yet if the game will deliver on its promises until the end but while we're trying to find out, enjoy the videos!

The first thing that came to my mind? Pandora. I hope they make a wild hunt level game based on Pandora someday

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus it looks really good... enough. production/budget wise. it was even more cheap on the first screens, but its quite nice in motion, because they nailed the Resi3:Nemesis look/art perfectly. (8 Hours ago)
