Robinson’s Renaissance: The Solus Project Out Feb 18th

Another survival game! Who wants to chop down a thousand trees and eat a hundred freshly harvested Happy Meals per hour to fend off accelerated starvation? While many survival games might expect you to spend all your time collecting and eating, as if there were nothing better to do, The Solus Project [official site] might be different. It takes place on a hand-crafted planet and is a more linear experience than many of its peers. Indeed, I’m going to go ahead and say its apparent focus on weather, health and exploration makes it the successor to Robinson’s Requiem I’ve been waiting for.

No Man’s Survival: The Solus Project’s Looking Good

It’s probably not fair to either game to invoke No Man’s Sky when talking about upcoming sci-fi survival offering The Solus Project [official site], but both the reddish-pink colour palette and the heavy use of tricorders (let’s not kid ourselves, eh?) does put me in mind of Hello Games’ newbie. The Solus Project is billed as a survival game, but more in the classical sense than the newer DayZ, Rust etc one. Devs Teotl Studios – who you may know from The Ball – and Grip – of Unmechanical fame – are at pains to point out it’s not a sandbox jobbie.

Man, that’s easy: eat fingers, drink wee. Survivalists these days, honestly – no backbone, that’s their problem.

Crash-landing your spaceship on a deserted planet is bad enough, but a growing suspicion that you’re not alone is surely worse. Look forward to that in The Solus Project [official site], a first-person singleplayer survive ’em up given its formal announcement during E3. Sure, the planet looks deserted but… how long have those alien structures been abandoned? And what’s up with those giant cracked eggs?

It’s a collaboration between Teotl Studio, the folks behind pleasant first-person puzzler The Ball, and Jet Car Stunts folks Grip Games. Come watch the trailer:

Jet Car Stunts Is A Video Game About Jet Car Stunts

See that jet car? It's doing stunts.

I do enjoy a good self-descriptive name. We’ve Got a Fuzzbox and We’re Gonna Use It certainly did, Roman Road indeed was, and Girls Aloud were delightfully so (imagine my disappointment in Drunken Robot Pornography). Today I find myself pleased by not only by the clear self-descriptive nature of Jet Car Stunts‘ name but also the fact that it describes a jet car doing stunts. The game flew onto Steam on Thursday at £7.99.
