Developer Planet Alpha ApS has teamed up with British video-game publisher Team 17 to market the product. The game has a very striking art style and makes full use of the Unreal Engine to deliver what might be the best looking platformer ever created.

Players awake on a odd alien world that is home to many mysterious, exotic flora and fauna. What will you discover?

But is the world as "tranquil and serene" as it seems, or is there something more sinister at work beneath the surface?

The development of the game began in 2013 after Adrian Lazar left IO Interactive, the studio behind Hitman (2016). We are building something special and we're putting everything we have into it.

Adrian Lazar comments positively to the partnership, which allows the team to finally bring the game to players all over the world.

The game looks quite unique so hopefully it'll live up to expectations when it launches later this year. According to Lazar, Team17 "truly believes in Planet Alpha as much as we do". So we implemented a day and night cycle that we keep evolving even today, which goes way beyond the visuals, affecting every part of the gameplay. The world that Adrian and his team have made is one that I want to spend time in.

Respected and well known indie label Team17 is handling publishing duties on this one, with a 2018 release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
