Team17 has announced that Planet Alpha will release on Nintendo Switch, an atmospheric side-scrolling platform adventure game from Denmark-based independent developer Adrian Lazar. Check out the announcement trailer below.

In development since 2013, Planet Alpha is a side-scrolling platformer that combines creative puzzles with stealth mechanics, on a backdrop of attractive colours and odd creatures - like Abe's Oddysee mixed with No Man's Sky.

Planet Alpha is a platformer on a lovely alien world.

The game has been in development for some time, since 2013, and it's picked up a variety of pre-release industry accolades. Awakening on a mysterious alien world, Planet Alpha has you navigating exotic flora and fauna, before you uncover the ability to rotate and control the planet itself. In addition to this, you can also manipulate the time of day to use to your advantage, which is made possible because the world of Planet Alpha is affected by a solar cycle.

"Is this world really as tranquil and serene as it first appears and what more will you discover?"

Lazer previously worked at IO, working on Hitman (2017) and Hitman: Absolution. More information can be found on the game's site.

Planet Alpha is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC sometime in 2018.
