PLANET ALPHA, the interplanetary side-scroller from Team 17, has a new trailer that shows off some of the project’s varied environments.
The trailer, embedded below, dips between rural and futuristic designs, with the flora of the level designs appearing as deadly as they are enticing.
Oddly enough, the trailer invokes memories of 2017’s INSIDE, despite that game having an extremely limited colour palette compared to PLANET ALPHA. Gameplay-wise, the title appears to balance slower puzzle elements with some fast-paced platforming. The integration of the game’s artistic sensibilities affecting the gameplay, too, is a nice touch.
Despite borrowing heavily from a variety of sci-fi influences, the art style remains relatively original. In particular, the design of plant life remains uncanny, skirting the line between aesthetically pleasing and terrifying.
No release date has been confirmed as of yet, but the title will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.
