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!

In addition, there's also a number of visual upgrades throughout, most notably the addition of normal-mapped terrains.

  2. Minimal but evocative
    by Ken Spiker, USA - Jun 29th 2014

    I love this game. It has a quality that few games have these days, an esthetic simplicity and evocative ambience. You really feel you're exploring on another planet. It presents enough challenges to keep you playing but without the constant tension of a shooter. Basically, you're exploring an alien planet and trying to solve its mysteries. (Or is it Earth after the apocalypse?) The graphics are beautifully rendered.

    As a game it's mostly jumping from one platform or rock to another, sometimes over prodigious distances. One review I read suggested that all that platform jumping detracted from pure exploration, but I found the jumping to be essential to making it an interesting game, and not that hard when you get used to it. Well, there was one jump that I had to try about 20 times to get right, but most of the others are fairly easy.

    There are no monsters and no shooting, you're pretty much alone and it's easy to fall to your death. There are also some deadly plants that want to impale you if you get too close. The one thing I didn't like was the darkened rooms where you have to use a headlamp and it's very hard to get the lamp pointed in the direction you want. Otherwise the puzzles are simple and intuitive. For some this game may be too minimal and boring, and for others, like me, it presents a wonderful sense of exploration and alien ambience. I wish there were more games like this.
