Lifeless planet FI

Lifeless Planet, the sci-fi astronaut adventure game released on PC in March 2014, is now making its way to PS4 with the Premier Edition.

Our astronaut is on a mission seeking life on a distant planet, however after landing there instead discovers a barren wasteland and surprisingly an abandoned Russian town.

He begins to wonder if he has travelled back in time, or if this mission was all just a fraud, until he meets an unusual woman who is somehow able to survive the planet’s atmosphere, and whose skin turns the soil beneath her feet glowing green.

The game is a third person adventure, in which you will explore and solve puzzles across 20 different environments: “equipped with a limited-use jet-pack and a mobile robotic arm, the player must use their wits and skill to solve puzzles, unravel the mystery, and survive the Lifeless Planet!”

The premier edition includes an updated engine which features improved character models and visuals.

The game received some mixed reviews on its original release, though generally these were more positive than not – some praising the game’s interesting story, while criticising the simplistic gameplay.

It’s not clear that the latter criticism has had any attempt to amend, and the trailer does look rather rudimentary, however a visual improvement and a chance to play on PS4 I suppose is welcome.

The game will release on PS4 on the 19th July.

I started gaming with the release of the PS1 - Crash Bandicoot and Ridge Racer Revolution being the first 'real' games I ever set eyes on - and have been enthralled with the medium ever since. I particularly love strategy and horror games, the sort offered by titles such as Total War and Silent Hill, though I also have a soft spot for a good RPG. I studied Journalism at university in the hopes of progressing into writing about games. You'll most likely find me covering indie games as I'm always on the look out for interesting little titles, and generally I stick to the PC and PS4 platforms. I'm not interested in MMOs or really any kind of online game, and I have an unusual and frankly worryingly expensive obsession with collecting gaming guide books, but aside from that I like to think I'm a well rounded average gamer.
