Brighton, UK 4 April 2014

Lace Games and Stage 2 Studios are pleased to announce that the hugely anticipated and critically acclaimed indie PC game 'LIFELESS PLANET' has now hit Beta!

'LIFELESS PLANET' is a third-person action-adventure game that puts the player in the moon-boots of an astronaut on a one-way mission to a life-bearing planet far outside our solar system.  But after a rough landing, the promise of a new Earth soon fades with the discovery that the planet he was to explore is now barren and inhospitable. The adventure truly begins when he discovers he is not the first human visitor to this mysterious world!

Following the successful launch last month on Steam's Early Access program, the game has transitioned smoothly to an internal Beta stage and has been enhanced by much of the feedback received not just by the press, but the gaming community as a whole.

Designed and developed single-handedly by David Board, 'LIFELESS PLANET' was one of the first games to be successfully funded on Kickstarter. David has since laboured for over two years to bring this sci-fi exploration game to a beta stage.  "I am incredibly humbled by the reaction to the game so far.  Things are now progressing rapidly and I am confident we will be announcing a Gold Master date soon" commented David.

Adam Lacey, MD of Lace Games added "It never ceases to amaze me just what one person can achieve and reaching Beta is a true testimony to David's dedication and determination.  Much of the feedback received from the Early Access program has been incorporated in to the game and we are more confident than ever that 'LIFELESS PLANET' is set to be a huge hit"

Lace Games and Stage 2 Studios have also released a new moving screen shots video highlighting some of the great feedback 'LIFELESS PLANET' has received so far from the gaming community.  The video can be downloaded here: http://youtu.be/zsHzsbwj60w

About the creator

'LIFELESS PLANET' has been single-handedly created and developed by Alaska-based David Board of Stage 2 Studios.  His inspiration for the game stems from a love of classic 1950’s and 60’s sci-fi movies and TV shows.  Coupled with a love for video games and quite frankly not much else to do during those long dark Alaskan winter nights, he has turned this passion into something quite special.
