I love space games which put the Soviet Union at the forefront of the action, Battlezone remains one of my favourite games partly for that reason. Lifeless Planet has the chance to be catch my imagination as it too appears to put the Russian’s back into space. Hit the jump for the E3 trailer.
Lifeless Planet features a volunteer astronaut who has travelled to an Earth-like planet many light-years away from home, when he lands he is stranded without his companions, and hints that the Soviet’s got to the planet first. It is an interesting premise and it has an indie background with a successful Kickstarter campaign leading to Lace Mambe Global picking up publishing rights to the game. It is slated for release in Q4 2012 on PC.
