Team17 has announced that Planet Alpha will release on Nintendo Switch, an atmospheric side-scrolling platform adventure game from Denmark-based independent developer Adrian Lazar.
After waking on a strange alien world that is home to many mysterious, exotic flora and fauna, you explore the world around you and discover your ability to rotate and control the planet.
Throwing in fast platforming, creative puzzles, stealth mechanics, and a unique art style to create an unforgettable experience, it is down to you to discover whether the world is really as tranquil and serene as it first appears.
“Planet Alpha is the work of passion of a small but very ambitious team. We are building something special and we’re putting everything we have into it. Developing the game for over four years has been a roller coaster, so when we looked for a publisher we were very selective,” explains creator Adrian Lazar.
“I am thrilled to have found in Team17 a partner who can offer us the resources that we need to bring this game to the players, but more importantly I’m excited to have a partner that truly believes in Planet Alpha as much as we do. I cannot wait to share our creation with the world.
Team17 CEO Debbie Bestwick adds: “At their best video games can take us to different worlds on amazing journeys. The world that Adrian and his team have made is one that I want to spend time in. It’s such a pleasure to welcome Planet Alpha to the Team17 games label.”
Planet Alpha will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in 2018.
