Cinematic puzzle adventure game Planet of Lana announced for Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PCOff-Earth odyssey due out in late 2022.
Publisher Thunderful and developer Wishfully have announced cinematic puzzle adventure game Planet of Lana for Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC (Steam, Windows 10). It will launch in late 2022.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
A planet that used to be a place of undisturbed balance between human, nature, and animal has now become something else entirely.
The disharmony that had been in the making for hundreds of years has finally arrived in the form of a faceless army. But this is not a story about war. This is a story about a vibrant, beautiful planet—and the journey to keep it that way.
- Explore a colorful world with a trusted companion.
- Friendships grow in violent and puzzling terrain.
- Programmed doesn’t mean predictable.
- Bravely can fit in the smallest of creatures.
- Everything isn’t a fight.
- Welcome to an off-earth odyssey.
Here is a separate overview, via Thunderful:
Set on an alien world, Planet of Lana tells the story of Lana and her loyal animal companion Mui as they embark on a rescue mission to save her sister. This touching tale is experienced through the lens of a cinematic side scrolling gameplay format, as players explore a colorful world full of stunning environments, strange creatures and dangerous machines. From a gameplay perspective, Planet of Lana is an adventure filled with daring platforming, engaging puzzles, tense stealth sequences and a companion mechanic that connects Lana and Mui, allowing for unique gameplay and story moments using their abilities in tandem.
This off-world odyssey is tied together with a completely unique visual style that combines hand-drawn artwork, complex parallax layering and subtle use of 3D graphics to give the look of an interactive painting. On high-end PCs and Xbox Series X, Planet of Lana will run at a native resolution of 4K (2160p) at 60 frames per second, allowing its incredible artwork to come to life. Further details on Planet of Lana’s gameplay, story and performance profiles for other devices in the Xbox family of consoles will be shared at a later date.
