Team17 to publish sci-fi platformer Planet Alpha

Explore an Alien World with Planet Alpha and Relive the Abe’s Oddysee Atmosphere

Team17 has announced that Planet Alpha will release on Nintendo Switch, an atmospheric side-scrolling platform adventure game from Denmark-based independent developer Adrian Lazar.

In Planet Alpha, you awake on a mysterious and exotic alien world which may not be quite as serene as it first appears.

As outlined in the moving pictures below, Planet Alpha weaves a gorgeous art style with puzzles, stealth mechanics and intricate platforming-wherein, after waking up in odd surroundings, the player can "rotate and control the planet" as they strive to find their bearings. Lazar, who is the brains behind the project, started the game in his own time while working at IO on the most recent HITMAN series.

"Planet Alpha is the work of passion of a small but very ambitious team".

Development for Planet Alpha began all the way back in December 2013, as a solo endeavour from Danish developer Adrian Lazar.

Debbie Bestwick, Team17's CEO adds: "At their best video games can take us to different worlds on awesome journeys".

There is no release information for Planet Alpha as of now, but make sure to stay tuned for any new information.

You'll be able to play Planet Alpha on Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC later in 2018. What's more, the player has the ability to change the time of day at will, using the transformation that the planet undergoes to their advantage.
