While seeking life on a distant planet, a skeptical astronaut discovers an abandoned Russian laboratory and suspects his mission is a hoax until a mysterious young woman saves him from a strange and deadly phenomenon... Scientists have now discovered over a thousand new planets orbiting other stars in our galaxy. Of these, at least 60 are comparable in size to the Earth, and a few are within the habitable zone of their star—meaning they could harbor life. What if you could explore one of those planets? Lifeless Planet will be a game that puts the adventure back into "action-adventure." Combining great graphics with a great story, Lifeless Planet aims to be a gaming experience in the spirit of classic games like ICO, The Dig, and Out of This World. Lifeless Planet is under development for PC, Mac and mobile platforms.

Report RSS New Lifeless Planet Screenshots and PAX Prime Report

Just posted four new screenshots to the gallery, and...I'm happy to report our two days in the indie MEGABOOTH at PAX Prime were hugely successful! We handed out around two thousand buttons and business cards, showed the trailer to dozens of people and got very positive feedback on the playable preview build. Lots of press and platform reps came by the booth as well. I met Microsoft, Nintendo and Valve reps, and while I have no announcements to make, the odds of wider distribution are good!

I'm happy to report our two days in the indie MEGABOOTH were hugely successful! We handed out around two thousand buttons and business cards, showed the trailer to dozens of people and got very positive feedback on the playable preview build. Lots of press and platform reps came by the booth as well. I met Microsoft, Nintendo and Valve reps, and while I have no announcements to make, the odds of wider distribution are good!

Even though I had to take time off production and it was very tiring (I lost my voice from two days of 10+ hrs "shout-talking"), PAX was very well worth it. I am newly energized to finish up the remaining work, and the sense of community in the indie MEGABOOTH was encouraging. We've now got a lot more very excited people looking forward to Lifeless Planet...

Progress Report

I get so excited with the progress I'm making on the game...until I look at the calendar. Time is simply not my friend, but that doesn't mean things aren't rolling along. I'm thrilled with how the end of the game is coming together, but of course I won't spoil it for you.

In the last few weeks, I finished laying-out the final levels. Then I went back and began tying together earlier levels to make the game playable end-to-end. I'll have a few more weeks of this work, but it's good to finally see all of these diverse parts coming together into the final product.

At this point, I'm shooting for release by end of the year or early next year. I'm running out of days for that, but I certainly hope to at least have a fully playable build to testers by end of the year.
