New side-scrolling platform adventure game from legendary label.
Award-winning international games label Team17 and indie dev Adrian Lazar today announced that the beautiful platform adventure Planet Alpha has joined Team17’s games label.
Planet Alpha is an atmospheric side-scrolling platform adventure game. Combining fast platforming, creative puzzles, stealth mechanics and a unique art style to create an unforgettable experience.
You awake on a strange alien world that is home to many mysterious, exotic flora and fauna. As you explore the world around you, you’ll uncover the ability to rotate and control the planet. Is this world really as tranquil and serene as it first appears and what more will you discover?
Development on Planet Alpha initially took life in 2013 with Adrian Lazar working on the game solo in his spare time. In 2015 Lazar left his job at IO, having worked on Hitman (2017), Hitman: Absolution and Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days, to focus on the game full time and recruited a small international team to support development.
Adrian said of working with Team17:
“Planet Alpha is the work of passion of a small but very ambitious team. We are building something special and we’re putting everything we have into it. Developing the game for over 4 years has been a roller coaster, so when we looked for a publisher we were very selective. I am thrilled to have found in Team17 a partner who can offer us the resources that we need to bring this game to the players, but more importantly I’m excited to have a partner that truly believes in the game as much as we do. I cannot wait to share our creation with the world.”
Though there’s no exact release date yet, the game is expected to be released in quarter 3 of this year for Steam, PS4, Xbox One and Switch. You can add Planet Alpha on Steam to your wish list now.
