Independent developer Adrian Lazar has teamed up with publisher Team17 to bring Planet Alpha to the Nintendo Switch and other platforms later this year. In 2015 Lazar left his job at IO, having worked on Hitman (2017), Hitman: Absolution and Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days, to focus on the game full time and recruited a small worldwide team to support development.

Development for Planet Alpha began all the way back in December 2013, as a solo endeavour from Danish developer Adrian Lazar.

Planet Alpha is an atmospheric side-scrolling platform adventure game. What will you discover?

As for the game's story, it picks up when you find yourself injured, alone, and stranded on a odd alien world that is home to magical and mysterious flora and fauna. The world that Adrian and his team have made is one that I want to spend time in. Following this stint, the project found an investor in CAPNOVA, who is now fully financing the game, and presumably allowing Lazar to hire some help.

Planet Alpha is due for release on PC and consoles later this year.
