The new gameplay features Dr. Yasna, a scientist exploring a desert planet to find their missing crewmates. The game takes cues from Firewatch, as Dr. Yasna is speaking to a character named Novik on the radio, as they discuss what could have happened to the missing crew. The game’s pace is very calm and quiet, letting the players experience the highly-detailed environment and listen to the conversation play out.
The trailer ends with what appears to be Yasna’s death, implying the game could feature multiple playable characters. You can check out the gorgeous gameplay for yourself below.
The game’s story is inspired by a novel by Polish author Stanislaw Lem. The book, also titled The Invincible, explores the hostile, lifeless planet of Regis 3 after a spaceship crew crash lands there.
The Invincible is in development at Starward Industries, a studio made up of veteran AAA developers with experience on The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077, Dead Island, and more. It was first revealed in September 2020, and is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC sometime in 2023.
The new studio describes itself as AA built with AAA experience with their website saying, “We want to pursue quality mastered in previous endeavors and to deliver it in smaller, yet even and groundbreaking projects.”
