Planet Alpha Announced for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC

Team17 and Denmark-based independent developer Adrian Lazar have announced that Planet Alpha has joined Team17's games label. The game will put players in an alien world where they have the ability to control the day and night cycle of the game.

In development since 2013, Planet Alpha is a side-scrolling platformer that combines creative puzzles with stealth mechanics, on a backdrop of handsome colours and odd creatures - like Abe's Oddysee mixed with No Man's Sky.

Lazer previously worked at IO, working on Hitman (2017) and Hitman: Absolution. We are building something special and we're putting everything we have into it.

The power couple, who are married with two children, first toured together for the On The Run tour in 2014. Jay-Z and Beyoncé are bringing the OTR II tour to New Era Field on Saturday, August 18, 2018.

Lazar started developing the game on his own about four years ago, but now sports a small team that is hard at work creating the game. "I can not wait to share our creation with the world".

As for the game's story, it picks up when you find yourself injured, alone, and stranded on a unusual alien world that is home to magical and mysterious flora and fauna. More information can be found on the game's site.

The game will be released on the Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2018. It is now without a release date or release window, however, if you're attending the upcoming PAX East, you'll not only be able to see Planet Alpha, but you will get the chance to even play it.
