Lifeless Planet - Announcement Trailer
Jul 26, 2016Lifeless Planet is an interesting mash-up of genres, blending a walking simulator and platform-puzzling with a mysterious and quite gripping premise. Its slow pace mightn't be for everyone, but if you enjoy action adventures, are partial to tricky third-person platforming, and like classic sci-fi yarns, it's worth checking out.
Sep 20, 2016I wanted to like Lifeless Planet. I gave it a fair shake and I even liked it until I got a grasp on everything it has to see and do — about 45 minutes. Past that, it’s just an exercise in running and jumping across boring vistas while collecting uninteresting audiologs to support the bloated, unsatisfying story.
Sep 23, 2016This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I don't play video games much but this one looked interesting enough for me to want to get into, and I loved it. That said, I can imagine if you are even halfway serious about gaming this one would probably lack the complexity or variety that more popular games offer, but I found the story compelling enough to get me to finish it. Pros: I absolutely loved the visuals and the various perspectives. Story was simple but kept me following along. Cons: Too many jumping puzzles but hey, it's a low gravity thing.… Expand

Lifeless Planet is a platforming game where you play as an astronaut who’s crew crash lands on a planet that was once inhabited by the soviet union
when you wake up you see that your crew is gone and you have no idea how long you were out for...
you set out to find them and along your journey you discovery other mysteries to be solved..
You’ll find data and audio logs that explain what happened on this planet and why it’s no longer crawling with life...
The game is a constant 6 hours search for answers, and while this planet is lifeless.. it still manages to be just varied enough to stop it from feeling repetitive…
Though not varied enough to blow you away or keep you immersed for the entire 6 hours…
as the scenery doesn’t really change all too much…
The gameplay itself is straight up platforming and throwing switches to continue on your path to get home…
you hop gaps with your oxygen tank which can definitely take some getting used to as it feels just a little too floaty to ever feel satisfying…
And the level design doesn’t quite do the greatest job at keeping the player moving forward as there are rarely visual clues to give you an idea of what to do, occasionally halting momentum…
I found myself scratching my head probably once every 30 minutes not knowing where I was supposed to be going…
the game also does some weird things towards the end with geysers that don’t really work, but I do appreciate their attempt at throwing something new into the game…
The gameplay in Lifeless Planet definitely isn’t great, it’s passable...
But the greatness is in the mystery and exploration of this planet…
I give lifeless planet a 7/10… Expand

I dont regret playing trhough it but i cant recommend it. Game length 3h. Even though its so short i feel like it went on for wayyy too long.
-Graphics: dated af even for realease date but serviceable i guess
+Sound: good, atmospheric
-Controls / Gamesplay: clunky, slow and uncomfortable. i recommend double jumping and boosting all the time for faster movement
~Story: starts off strong but gets pretty bad around the half way point… Expand

Nov 2, 2016Lifeless Planet has an amazing premise and the trailers really pulled me in. Unfortunately the mystique fades away within the first 30Lifeless Planet has an amazing premise and the trailers really pulled me in. Unfortunately the mystique fades away within the first 30 minutes as you meander past the deserted soviet frontier town. There is no gameplay to speak of besides walking and jumping. The only challenge is trying to overcome the horrible controls and wonky momentum based movement system. There is a green path that you follow the entire game that lets leads you past any of the very obvious traps laid before your path and there are some documents that you'll find along the way which tell you the story of this world. The story unfortunately is very cliche and uninspired. Like i said I spent the first 30 minutes intrigued and then the rest of my 5 hours were kind of a sunk investment fallacy. I kept expecting it to get better but it never did. My takeaway by the end was that this felt like a student project more than a real game and honestly I wish i would have read the reviews before I installed it. Take my advice and avoid this stinker. I want my 5 hours back.… Expand
