Stranded after his ship is destroyed in deep space, Harrison, a lowly maintenance worker and our hero, must struggle to find his way home...

LOST ORBIT centers around the exploration of space. Players take control of a lone astronaut (Harrison) who sets off on a dangerous journey to rejoin his civilization, armed with only an improvised set of equipment and a relentless spirit. Without the help of his ship, Harrison will need to use the gravitational forces of planets to navigate and propel himself through space. 

Set in a world rich with comedy and tragedy, LOST ORBIT is a game filled with risk, loneliness, wonder, and death.

LOST ORBIT is scheduled for a Summer 2014 release on PC.

About PixelNAUTS

LOST ORBIT was created by PixelNAUTS, a small team of AAA-Devs sick of working for the man. They set out to create a fast twitch, flow-focused, and challenging game for those who love to travel at near light speed. LOST ORBIT features simple, yet very responsive controls; allowing players to tackle the dangerous and incredibly fast challenges presented in each level. LOST ORBIT focuses on merging art, gameplay and music into a harmonious and intense experience, taking players on the ride of their (often too short) lives.

LOST ORBIT was inspired by the developer’s love of the mysteries of space, challenging gameplay, and dark humor. Between the beautiful planets and intense gameplay LOST ORBIT weaves a lonesome tale of an astronaut’s journey to find hope in the nothingness of space. This dark tale is juxtaposed with humorous and over the top deaths and set in a colorful and wondrous world of the unknown.
