While seeking life on a distant planet, an astronaut discovers an abandoned Russian town. He suspects his mission is a hoax until a mysterious young woman saves him from a strange and deadly phenomenon... Lifeless Planet is a third-person action-adventure that features an old-school sci-fi story and spectacular environments in the spirit of classic action-adventures.

After a hard landing on the planet, the astronaut discovers the planet that was reported to be rich with life is instead a barren wasteland. When he goes searching for his crew, he makes a more startling discovery: evidence that humans have already been to this planet years ago! When he comes upon a deserted Soviet-era Russian town, he struggles to make sense of his mission. Did his light-speed travel to the planet send him back in time? Or is this all some strange Cold War hoax?

Along the way, the astronaut meets a Russian woman, Aelita, who is somehow able to survive the hostile atmosphere of the planet. Through an unusual natural phenomenon, her skin causes the soil to glow green under her feet. The player must use these glowing tracks as a guide across the planet past treacherous and deadly threats. Is she leading him to safety... or an untimely death?

Lifeless Planet was inspired by Cold War era science fiction stories, posing questions about humankind's desire for space travel. What if you journeyed across the galaxy to another planet, only to find humans had already been there? What kind of person would sign up for a one-way mission, leaving behind planet Earth and everyone they've ever known and love... to go in search of an Earth-like planet?

Equipped with a limited-use jet-pack and a mobile robotic arm, the player must use wits and skill to solve puzzles, unravel the mystery, and survive the Lifeless Planet!

The Premier Edition includes new original music from acclaimed Lifeless Planet composer Rich Douglass. In addition, there's also a number of visual upgrades throughout, most notably the addition of normal-mapped terrains.

The Premier Edition includes additional new Russian language voice acting, adding further richness to the already immersive experience.

  1. Interesting SciFi-Horror
    by AshesnBones, USA - Aug 21st 2016

    This is primarily an exploration/platforming game.. not really a 'walking sim' though the path you are set on is very linear. The premise is standard scifi lore.. you travel to Mars where there's supposedly some type of terraformed settlement awaiting you, but you wake up to find yourself crashed in a wasteland with your crewmates missing. Its a lonely trek to find out what happened on this planet, but the atmosphere, mystery, and interesting level designs drew me in. The platforming is questionable, and the controls are a little wonky, but overall its a worthwhile experience.

  2. Great Exploration Game
    by MoogleMan3, USA - Jun 22nd 2016

    When I played through Lifeless Planet, it reminded me a lot of games that tell their story without much in the way of dialogue or cutscenes. Yet the story it delivers is very engrossing and it kept me playing to see how the next chapter unfolds. This kept up right up to the end, yet I still wanted more. A sequel picking up after the somewhat cliffhanger, yet satisfying ending would be amazing.

    Gameplay is simple; you mainly explore by way of 3d platforming and some light puzzle solving. It never feels clunky or unresponsive.

    The game is a lot longer than I anticipated when I started playing, thinking it would last a few hours at best, but it didn't feel too long. It felt just right.

    I was very pleased with this game and hope for a sequel.
