Pre-orders for Lifeless Planet are now open via a Kickstarter pledge. So the only question that remains is... wait, what is Lifeless Planet? A good question indeed, as it is most definitely a title that has come out of nowhere, and shows great potential indeed.

An astronaut accidentally lands on a faraway planet, and discovers a Russian laboratory there that, well, shouldn't be there. Suspecting something a little odd is going on, he's then saved from a deadly fate by a mysterious woman who appears more than a little alien.

There are far more details on the Kickstarter page, but the main point to note is that the game is due to be released next Summer. Check out Stage 2 Studios' blog for the game as well, if you're looking for more morsels. Screenshots after the cut!
