PLANET ALPHA coming to the Switch in 2018

PLANET ALPHA coming to the Switch in 2018

Danish developer Adrian Lazar and his team are set to bring their fantastic looking platformer Planet Alpha to PC later this year.

In development since 2013, Planet Alpha is a side-scrolling platformer that combines creative puzzles with stealth mechanics, on a backdrop of lovely colours and unusual creatures - like Abe's Oddysee mixed with No Man's Sky. Check out the announcement trailer below. The game will put players in an alien world where they have the ability to control the day and night cycle of the game. The world that Adrian and his team have made is one that I want to spend time in.

Planet Alpha is a platformer on a handsome alien world.

But is the world as "tranquil and serene" as it seems, or is there something more sinister at work beneath the surface?

Seahawks turned down chance to match Richard Sherman's 49ers' contract
Richard Sherman , healthy, would immediately ascend to the top of San Francisco's starting cornerback spots. The franchises square off twice per season, and Sherman will be on the opposite sideline this year.

Lazer previously worked at IO, working on Hitman (2017) and Hitman: Absolution. "Developing the game for over four years has been a roller coaster, so when we looked for a publisher we were very selective", explains creator Adrian Lazar. Following this stint, the project found an investor in CAPNOVA, who is now fully financing the game, and presumably allowing Lazar to hire some help.

Planet Alpha will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in 2018.
