Tomasz Waclawek, the creator of Ronin, returns to show players his new game. Known as Immortal Planet, this action-packed RPG is described by the developers as “a love letter to Dark Souls”. So be prepared to fight, die and repeat again! The game will launch on Steam on July 28th.
What is Immortal Planet?
The game is an action RPG with a deep and challenging combat system that rewards patience and focus as well as punishes reckless players. The project offers a storyline showing a crumbling society of immortal being forever trapped in an endless cycle of rebirth. While those Immortals sleep in their tombs, sleepless warriors patrol the halls of their tombs.
Players step into the shoes of a lone Awakewalker who emerged from the sleep. The character has no memory of their past, and it is up to players to forge their future and to find a way to escape the planet’s curse.
Tomasz Waclawek, the creator of the game, states:
Immortal Planet is a love letter to Dark Souls. After making Ronin, published by Devolver Digital in 2015, I wanted to create a game that would be my own take on emerging genre of souls-like games. For me, the core of a souls-like game is the methodical combat where patience and focus are much more important than reflexes. Stamina management is a huge part of that, but I always felt that there can be a lot more done to it to make it more interesting.
Some of the game’s features:
- Souls-like Progression: Recover Experiences lost upon death and use them to upgrade your character. Customize your playstyle with dozens of items and spells.
- Methodical Combat: Patience and focus are much more important than reflexes. Block, dodge and tackle enemies while managing your stamina. You can see enemy stamina and exploit it to stun them when they are exhausted.
- Tight Level Design: Levels are designed around single checkpoints from which you explore the area around it. Levels feature many unlockable shortcuts so you are always progressing no matter what.
- Intense Boss fights: Every level features a powerful boss enemy. Fights with these enemies are multi-stage struggles that are a real test of skill and determination.
