Stage 2 Studios is bringing Lifeless Planet to the ID@Xbox party. Lifeless Planet is a third person action adventure game, with an emphasis on mystery and intrigue.
Team 17 has partnered up with Italic Pig to bring Schrödinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark to Xbox One. As the title suggests, Schrödinger's Cat is a puzzle platformer all about quantum mechanics.
Lifeless Planet is an action adventure with puzzle elements. You play as an American astronaut, tasked to charter potentially habitable worlds in a one-way mission. The planet described in the title, reportedly teeming with life, turns out to be a barren waste land - at least for the most part. Littered throughout are Russian settlements, sporting Soviet-era trappings - raising all sorts of questions. Is the mission a hoax? Does light speed travel result in bending reality? All these questions and more await answering in Lifeless Planet, which takes cues from sci-fi classics like 2001: A Space Odyssey and Solaris.
- Explore 20 unique and atmospheric environments on a vast and treacherous planet.
- Follow a mysterious young woman as she guides you past dangerous terrain and deadly life-forms.
- Investigate the startling discovery of an abandoned Russian town.
- Experience an exciting and intriguing story through rich graphics and cinematic cut-scenes.
Schrödinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark
Raiders of the Lost Quark is a frenetic puzzle-platformer all about quantum physics, developed by Italic Pig and published by indie outfit Team 17. Schrödinger's Cat has been drafted in to find out what went wrong at the Particle Zoo, a physics theme park that seems like it was more trouble than it was worth. All sorts of sub atomic particles are now run amok, creating all sorts of entropic chaos. Its up to you to battle the wayward quanta, and find out exactly how they escaped.
- 7 frustrating environments!
- 9 overly chatty and annoying characters!
- 11 Particle-Based Baddies!
- 14 Quark Combos!
- Nonsensical task-based gameplay!
- A satisfying climax that only clever people will be able to enjoy properly!
As a fan of old school sci-fi flicks I find Lifeless Planet to be particularly intriguing. Raiders of the Lost Quark should be a good outing for fans of puzzle platformers as well. Perhaps my backlog isn't be so huge in another quantum reality.
