While seeking life on a distant planet, an astronaut discovers an abandoned Russian town. He suspects his mission is a hoax until a mysterious young woman saves him from a strange and deadly phenomenon... Lifeless Planet is a third-person action-adventure that features an old-school sci-fi story and spectacular environments in the spirit of classic action-adventures.
After a hard landing on the planet, the astronaut discovers the planet that was reported to be rich with life is instead a barren wasteland. When he goes searching for his crew, he makes a more startling discovery: evidence that humans have already been to this planet years ago! When he comes upon a deserted Soviet-era Russian town, he struggles to make sense of his mission. Did his light-speed travel to the planet send him back in time? Or is this all some strange Cold War hoax?
Along the way, the astronaut meets a Russian woman, Aelita, who is somehow able to survive the hostile atmosphere of the planet. Through an unusual natural phenomenon, her skin causes the soil to glow green under her feet. The player must use these glowing tracks as a guide across the planet past treacherous and deadly threats. Is she leading him to safety... or an untimely death?
Lifeless Planet was inspired by Cold War era science fiction stories, posing questions about humankind's desire for space travel. What if you journeyed across the galaxy to another planet, only to find humans had already been there? What kind of person would sign up for a one-way mission, leaving behind planet Earth and everyone they've ever known and love... to go in search of an Earth-like planet?
Equipped with a limited-use jet-pack and a mobile robotic arm, the player must use wits and skill to solve puzzles, unravel the mystery, and survive the Lifeless Planet!

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.

Early Access Review DE: Very interesting Game with a harmonious Atmosphere and a Story that makes you curious about more. Graphic and acoustic for a 1-Man studio very impressive. If you liked "Journey" on the PS3, you can easily access it here as well. EN: Very interested game with a coherent that atmosphere arouse my curiosity for more. Graphical and acoustical a very impressing project for a One-man studio. If you liked "Journey" on the PS3, you'll probably like this game.

Mediocre Metascore? Admit it's a Walking Simulator with simple Puzzles and simple Gameplay, even the Presentation is very simple and the Graphics are expedient. For this you will be rewarded with an exciting and fantastic Sci-Fi Story that motivates you to Continue playing and captivates to The End. Then, when you still consider that the whole thing was developed by a One-man team, respectful! For anyone who sees the Story As The main Reason for The story at games and does not shy Away from the drygen presentation. 7/10 Points

Lifeless Planet is more of a work of Art than a Game. The Approach was quite interesting and the Atmosphere is really good, but the actual Game behind it is rather weak. The Jumping Interludes are not always optimal and the World is also quite empty. You can Also really argue about the actual Story. However, Lifeless Planet is a rather quieter and short game for in between, which can be particularly briefly impressed by its incredibly good Atmosphere. Those who can embark on this Adventure will be worth the Trip for, but all Others will be rather disappointed.

Lifeless Planet is a Game that is not only beautiful but does not fight, little Puzzles are also in it and a good Atmosphere has it too. Unfortunately, I am stuck on a Piece Of rock. Don't Feel like going to the last Memory Point, because it's pretty far behind. And that's what makes the Game so. You play that and you just forget to save it in between. It's sometimes tiresdent when you're so alone on a foreign Planet, maybe alone (or not?) wandering around. But it's exciting anyway and I'll be hiking again soon ... Because I want to know ... What happened...

The Strengths of the Game are the Atmosphere, the Story and the Sound that tear you along. Lots of Jump & Run and here and there a Puzzle (easy to medium), which are very coherent and fit well into the Spiel/Story. The Game is quite short with just under 5 Hours of Play, but that is not to the Detriment of the Game. In the Game is not fought, it is defiance everything very exciting and one or the other Horror second Was also there:) I couldn't get enough of the beautiful Panoramic views over the Planet and over the numerous different Places. The Control is very easy and quick to learn. In Short: A beautiful Game with an insane Atmosphere and good Sound, a very good Substitute for a few TV evenings or an exciting Book.
