Polish game development studio, Starward Industries, have announced their debut title, The Invincible, in celebration of the 99th birthday of Science Fiction writer Stanisław Lem. The Invincible, in the making since 2018, is a first-person single player Sci-Fi thriller set in a retro-future timeline coming to PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X in 2021.
The single-player story of The Invincible will introduce gamers firsthand to the idea that there are places in the Universe that are not only unwelcoming to us as humans, but entirely forbidden. The game will plunge players onto a distant planet Regis III set in atompunk aesthetics. While technology in the game’s universe has advanced to the point of seamless space exploration, equipment remains analogue as the digital revolution has not taken place, nor has The Cold War ended.
Starward Industries CEO, Marek Markuszewski said:
“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. 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.”
