PLANET ALPHA Confirms Release Date In Bug-Infested Trailer



PLANET ALPHA, the colourful side-scroller by Team 17, has a new trailer that details some of the game’s enemy types and subtarreanean levels.

In comparison the previous trailer’s environmental focus, this teaser centers around the game’s fauna and technology. A variety of enemies are on display, ranging from alien insectoids to robotic enemies.

PLANET ALPHA appears to intersect the natural and technological world, skirting the line between organic and synthetic design inspirations. Gameplay-wise, the title balances slower puzzle elements and stealth with fast-paced evasion and platforming.

Impressively, the game’s backdrop is remarkably active, rarely falling into static animation. In terms of movement, PLANET ALPHA invokes memories of INSIDE and Limbo. However, unlike those well-regarded titles, Team17’s platformer appears to opt for the maximal instead of the minimal.

Bundled in with the trailer was an announcement of the game’s release date of September 4, 2018. PLANET ALPHA will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.

Multiple Hirings at Insomniac Games Spark Rumours of Spider-Man Sequel




Sony Interactive Entertainment has posted an advertisement on LinkedIn for both an audio designer and senior audio designer, sparking rumours of a Spider-Man sequel.

The recent hirings indicate that Insomniac is indeed working on something new for PlayStation fans to enjoy. With Spider-Man being such a massive hit alongside an officially licensed comic expanding on Insomniac’s Spider-verse, players could get a sequel sooner rather than later.

The official job posting requirements for the senior audio designer are as follows:

“Responsible for being an active and key contributor for the creative direction and style for audio assets and workflow processes throughout a production cycle. Creates, edits, and implements game-ready audio. Works closely with the rest of the audio team to maintain a high level of quality and consistency of assets.”

While the job posting does not guarantee a sequel, PlayStation fans can rest easy knowing another juicy exclusive is in the pipeline.
