Developer Planet Alpha ApS has release a new trailer that reveals Planet Alpha’s official launch date.
Adrian Lazar started working on Planet Alpha as a side project back in 2013 when he was still employed with IO Interactive. As the recipient of a $5,000,000 dollar development fund from Epic Games through The Unreal Dev Grant program, Lazar was able to run a full-time development studio to work on this passion project of his.
[quote style=’1′ cite=” title=”]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 PLANET ALPHA as much as we do. I cannot wait to share our creation with the world.[/quote]
The side-scrolling platformer game takes place in a living alien world where players have the ability to control the cycle of day and night. It combines fast platforming, puzzles and stealth elements with an unique art-style to create an unforgettable experience.
Planet Alpha launches on Steam for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on September 4, 2018.
