Planet Alpha is a lush-looking platformer that is coming Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2018.

Created by Denmark-based developer Adrian Lazar, Planet Alpha is billed as an atmospheric side-scrolling platform adventure game that combines fast platforming, creative puzzles, stealth mechanics and a unique art style.

Lazar began work on the game in his spare time in 2013, then left his gig at Hitman studio IO Interactive in 2015 to focus on it full time.

The story: you awake on a strange alien world full of exotic flora and fauna, and uncover the ability to rotate and control the planet.

As you can see from the trailer, the world is sumptuously rendered and pleasingly weird.

A small team is helping Lazar realise his vision for the game, and Team 17 is handling publishing duties.
