What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are passionate about Lost in Sky, its mechanics, lore, and the environment. We want both experienced and platformer newbies to join us!

This is why we’ve been sharing the game's early versions with the community since the very beginning and directly transformed the feedback we received into something in the game.

The Early Access version should meet the expectations of volunteers and friends, but this is not enough for us.

Your feedback really matters. Together we will make one of the best action platformers around!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The major part of the content, including the basic gameplay, levels, weapons, is already here—and it’s worth your attention. But we understand that there’s plenty of room for new features on top of the existing base.

This includes additional locations, puzzles, and mechanics. You will be the first to know when they arrive.

In addition, it’s always more fun to play with someone else: we’d like to focus on the game’s co-op mode.

We want to hear from you! Your ideas and suggestions are very important at this stage. We expect it won't take us long to carefully bring them into the game: 8 months tops until it's out of E.A.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

What is ready by now:

  • 10 hours of action-packed gameplay on levels full of all sorts of enemies, awesome combat, and tricky puzzles;

  • Switching between the characters with different special abilities on the go (you’re playing with the AI bot instead of a real partner at the moment);

  • A unique retro futuristic game universe: the way that the characters look, the artifacts, architecture, and panoramic views;

  • Fun puzzles;

  • Levels, full of challenges and secrets.

What we’re working on:
  • New characters' abilities to unlock;

  • More terrible monsters;

  • A lot of new secrets on the levels to make the player focus on the exploration;

  • Co-op mode: send an invite to play with your friends via LAN or Internet;

  • Additional co-op levels and bosses;

  • Game localization into as many languages as we can;

  • Complete update of the sound effects.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Today the game can be enjoyed as a fully single-player experience.

It includes handcrafted levels, tutorials, core gameplay, and boss battles.

Don’t forget to check out the co-op scenes that you can find in the main menu!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We're planning to add content and features to make game more attractive co-op-wise, but we never intended to alter the price.
The game will be available at the same price—even lower during the Steam sales. We want to make it perfectly affordable, whether you want it for yourself or as a gift to a friend.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our gaming community members are welcome to contribute to the development! We are going to share regular updates via our development blog and reach out to players through our community hub and social media. We'll follow your comments and observations—and accept your feedback gracefully.

We want to complete the development process with your support, right now, during the Early Access stage. We know you can share your valuable suggestions based on your practical gaming experience.

The most active of you will find their names in the credits!

We sincerely hope that our fans will be enjoying the game after the release!”

On the Highway to Release - 12/07/2018

The great spaceship ARK is cruising through the space in the distant future. This planet-spaceship is made up of multiple biomes, inhabited by humans and mutated deadly beasts.

Over the centuries of wandering the humanity lost its goal and the former level of technology. Owing to the dictatorship of a group of priests, headed by the Creator's AI, the City, ARK's core and the pillar of industrial civilization, remains the only place preserving bits and pieces of the lost knowledge.

All of a sudden, mutated monsters from the Jungle invade the city. Security system crash leads to a bloody massacre, which only the heroes of the warrior caste can stop.



In addition to mutant hordes, the player will face the mysteries of ARK laboratories, which calls into question the very human nature. What is a human? Is it the indomitable spirit or genetic carrier, hostage to the masters of the evolution, run by them from behind the ARK's scenes?

This is the basis of the Lost in Sky: Violent Seed story—the game we're telling you about today.

Main characters

Let us introduce you to the main characters, responsible for protecting the remains of the humanity, the mission that seems impossible at the first glance.

Roy M., the Swordsman. An elite melee warrior from Ark captain's private security team. Absolute combat skills enable him to confront any threat.



Strike

Snaps all types of enemies like twigs, but consumes stamina. Mind your combat strategy in this regard.
A mastery of melee weapons allows to effectively defeat any enemy.


Power strike

Good for smashing cages and supply boxes or kicking back the enemies. Of course, it requires measuring the distance to the enemy and careful timing to prepare the blow.



Jump strike

Effectively takes down airborne enemies.


Dash strike

A situation that is about to go out of control requires a super strike. Sweeping away all enemies from your way feels nice and works well.




Another character is Eileen, the Archer, who deals ranged damage. Her sharp eyes and quick shot spell trouble.



These are her combat abilities:

Shot

Why approaching an enemy in an uphill battle if you can simply take them down from a safe distance?



Power shot

Deals huge damage, but consumes more stamina.


Fan shot

It's the super ability: EIleen shoots a massive fan of arrows. There can't be too many good arrows.


Enemies

Monsters in the Lost in Sky world can walk, fly, crawl, and attack in many different ways. The range of assorted troubles they'll be causing you is very wide.

Langoliers

Petty, annoying, seemingly chaotic flying creatures. They may attack you one at a time or in a swarm.

Check out their sketches:



Scorpios

Quite the tricksters. They can jump and bite, and the smartest of them can burrow for a devious attack.



Spiders

Cowardly and reserved by nature, they spit on you from a distance, travel by their cobwebs, and avoid close encounter at all costs.



Worms

Slow, but nasty. If it fails to bite you, it'll explode. No good either way.



Teamwork

Depending on the character you control, Roy or Eileen, you may command your partner to follow or hold position. You an also share a health kit or simply have a chat.

The gameplay is based on your cooperation and interactions with the game mechanics (levers, push plates) as a team. You can never go alone. Always invite a friend or two.



One or more combat turrets can be a part of your team. It makes fighting your way through the crowd of enemies so much easier.

Levels

At the beginning the players will attend a briefing in the Menagerie training camp. You will practice your combat skills and prepare for the upcoming mission.

The Menagerie in the middle of the City of the Future is where they keep the beasts from the Jungle and other Ark biomes. Caste warriors hold their special practice rounds there. However, the priests remain silent about the real purpose of keeping the beasts in the heart of the secure city.

Menagerie is an endless maze with lots of floors, passages, and platforms. The lighting is malfunctioning because part of city life-support systems is failing, causing the red emergency lights to kick in.



The caged monsters are trying to break out and tear in half everyone who dares standing in their way.



Our next article will cover the City, the cradle of future civilization, with beautiful neon lights on the surface and grim and gloomy inside, in the dark underground passages.

Stay tuned and see you soon!
