The Invincible Announced

Here's a Steam Listing for The Invincible, a sci-fi first-person shooter based on the Stainslaw Lem novel (thanks Gematsu). This is in the works at Starward Industries, led by former CD PROJEKT RED producer Marek Markuszewski along with developers whose credits include The Witcher 3, Dying Light, Dead Island, and Cyberpunk 2077. Here's a Music Preview Video and here's more on the game:
The Invincible is a first-person Sci-Fi thriller set in a retro-future timeline. Waking up as a space scientist on a hostile planet, you embark on a mysterious mission to find the missing crew of your spaceship. Survival is a matter of your correct choices, taken whilst uncovering the secrets of the planet, bigger than anyone thought.

You are a scientist onboard an interstellar scientific expedition, suddenly thrown into a life-or-death rescue mission. Landing on a planet Regis III you have to find the missing crew members using some advanced space equipment, whilst relying on your brains and instincts to survive on the planet which quickly occurs to be unwelcoming. Soon you’ll discover that Regis III holds terrifying secrets which are uncovered while you’re piecing together the fate of your crew. And as you delve deeper into the mystery, you realise that perhaps you are not alone, and that some places like this planet are better left untouched. But it’s too late to turn back.

Features

  • Retro-future atompunk setting reminiscent of the era of space race
  • Analogue yet very advanced technology allowing for drones and autonomous robots to support or spoil your mission
  • Immersive gameplay with a non-linear story shaped by your relationships, choices and persuasive skills
  • Beautiful, state of the art graphics powered by Unreal Engine
  • Intriguing story inspired by Stanislaw Lem’s seminal sci-fi cult classic of the same name

Interesting. Stanislaw Lem - excellent source material. Unusual color pallet, at least they had some good art talent on board. Unfortunately this qualifies under JonJonz's Red Flag Rule, any game trailer without actual game play is suspect.

I am getting a "Lifeless Planet" vibe, which is ok, I liked that game, at least up to the stage where the biggest challenges were the jumping puzzle/parkour exercises.

Strange choice if you are going to take one of Lem's books/stories to make a video game.

Music is good. Screenshots are good - love the 70s analog design. Wishlisted. Book sounds interesting too. I'll have to give it a read.

Huh, looking at the Steam page, you'd think this was going to be a VR title, but it doesn't say that it is anywhere.
