Lace Games and Stage 2 Studios are pleased to announce that the release date for the hugely anticipated and critically acclaimed indie PC game ' LIFELESS PLANET' has been confirmed as  6th June 2014.

Developed almost single handidly by Alaskan based David Board (Stage 2 Studios),  '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!

"When I first set-off down this path some two and a half years ago, little did I know just how much of my life would be dominated by this labour of love.  Clearly, those long, dark, cold Alaskan winter nights have helped keep me focused!  More than anything else, I am absolutely thrilled that the gaming world will at last get to enjoy the game that is ' LIFELESS PLANET"!

"Two and a half years ago, Lace Games bought in to David's vision" commented Adam Lacey, CEO of Lace Games.  "Our belief in David and his ability to deliver on that vision has been totally justified and we are looking forward to the game being made available to the game playing public".

'LIFELESS PLANET' will be available to purchase from Steam and all other leading digital retailers from  6th June 2014.  The game will feature English text and voice overs along with full text and subtitled localisation into German, Russian, French and Spanish languages.

Selected UK retailers will also be stocking physical copies in stores on the  6th  June  2014 with further releases to follow throughout Europe and the rest of the world.

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.
