The Invincible is a first-person single-player sci-fi thriller, with atompunk aesthetics. The game is developed by a new Polish studio made of people who worked on Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3, and Dying Light.
The Invincible is based on a 1964 novel by author Stanisław Lem, and takes players to the distant planet in a retro-futuristic timeline.
You wake up on Regis 3, a distant, hostile planet. You’re a part of an interstellar scientific expedition, but it seems you’re now all alone. You’ll use futuristic, yet strangely analog technology to find and rescue the missing crew, all while trying to survive the planet’s harsh conditions.
As you search for your fellow explorers, you’ll slowly uncover Regis 3’s secrets and come to realize yo’re not as alone as you thought you were.
According to developer Starward Industries, the game will introduce players to the “idea that there are places in the Universe that are not only unwelcoming to us as humans, but entirely forbidden.”
“The Invincible, which has been secretly in the making for some time, combines a fascinating setting, iconic story and an established non-linear gameplay to deliver a truly unforgettable experience,” says Starward Industries CEO, Marek Markuszewski. “The studio believes in the power of interactive storytelling, and wants to engage gamers of all skill levels in crafting their own paths in the peculiar world of a distant, malevolent planet.”
So far, The Invincible’s most striking feature is its visuals. The game is set in an atompunk world, where technology has advanced to the point of seamless space exploration, but equipment remained analog. The digital revolution did not happen, taken place, nor has The Cold War ended.
The Invincible is planned for 2021, and will release on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox One. There’s still no trailer, but you can follow the game’s Steam page and enjoy some of its music and screenshots.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores.
