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!

  1. Beautiful, challenging and compelling game
    by Unclejace237, USA - Jul 22nd 2014

    This is one of the best games I have played. Great art, compelling story and challenging gameplay. Most importantly, it retains one's interest without the use of violence (short of your astronaut jumping off a cliff) as with so many games today. The only negative comment I have is the saved games are by default hidden by the OS. They are also placed in the cache folder which TimeMachine does not backup. Hopefully that will be corrected at some point.

  2. Disappointment
    by NorthernSpruce, Canada - Jul 9th 2014

    Much of the game is quite impressive - nice vistas, interesting puzzles, good storyline. Much of the game consists of making jumps but, even though I have a problem with reflexes/hand-eye coordination, it wasn't a problem as patience and experiment paid off. Then towards the end, out of nowhere, wind is introduced into the game and it becme impossible to me. I must have attempted one jump forty or fifty times. Looks like I won't be able to finish the game. So pointless to ruin an excellent game with a ridiculous twist.

  3. Mostly a platform game
    by Morten Vindberg, Denmark - Jul 5th 2014

    This is more of a platform game than an adventure. I gave up. I found all that unsuccessful jumping both annoying and boring. I guess my finger techniques are getting too old for this type of game
