That’s no planet: Lifeless Moon lands on Kickstarter

Lifeless Moon [official site], the follow-up to exploration game Lifeless Planet, has launched a crowdfunding campaign. Where the first game was set in the far future 15 light years from Earth, Lifeless Moon sees two astronauts stomping around our own moon, exploring a town that resembles one back on Earth. The original saw you walk and jetpack around in a space suit in third person, jumping…

Lifeless Planet review

There are days when I envy the faceless, nameless protagonist of latest walk-around-a-bit-'em-up Lifeless Planet. He's well and truly alone, fifteen light-years from Earth, stranded on a barren planet. His life is simple: seek oxygen and answers before hunger, asphyxiation or dust storms render him little more than a far flung corpse. Confusingly, there's a Russian research base and a mysterious woman here too. Good…

Impressions: Lifeless Planet

The game, which features an astronaut discovering a Russian town on a distant planet, is one of the most intriguing Kickstarted games due to turn up this year, so hopefully…

Lifeless Planet Really Isn’t Looking That Lifeless

Last November we spotted an amazing-looking game being Kickstarted (before it was cool) called Lifeless Planet. Attempting to create a game with an Ico-vibe, the mysterious exploration of a planet managed to secure more than double its funding. And, predictable, hasn't come out by the predicted release date on the project (now aiming for Winter). However, it's going to be featured at the Kickstarter Arcade…

The Race For Space: Lifeless Planet

There are a fair number of games where after playing them, in fact years after playing them, you tip your head back and scream at the sky, "WHY AREN'T THERE MORE GAMES LIKE THIS?!" Ico is definitely one of those for me. So I'm delighted to hear from David Board, an indie developer who is attempting to fill that particular gap. Lifeless Planet is an…
