The Kickstarted game, Lifeless Planet, which sees players exploring an atmospherically hazardous and seemingly lifeless planet, has been announced as a 2013 release. The developer has finally dropped word on when gamers can expect the crowd-funded title to release.
picked up the news from German site GBase, where Stage 2 Studios' lead designer who noted that...
"My goal with Lifeless Planet is to build a game that puts the adventure back into 'action-adventure.' I grew up loving games like Out of this World, The Dig, and ICO, and I want to create a gaming experience in the spirit of these true action-adventure games. Don't get me wrong: 3D is good. Platforming is good. But I love games that combine great graphics with great stories."
Very interesting, especially given that gamers who are unfamiliar with those titles can at least check out a remastered and re-released 20th Anniversary Edition of Out of this World, which just went live on digital distributors a few days ago.
With the crowd-fund complete and a late third or fourth quarter release in tow, things are looking up for Stage 2 Studios.
