Lifeless Planet: Premier Edition is a story inspired by science fiction stories from the Cold War era. An astronaut and a young woman navigate an abandoned Russian town on a distant planet, discovering the possibility that humans have inhabited the planet long before the astronaut’s arrival.
As the description reads on Steam: “What if you journeyed across the galaxy to another planet, only to find humans had already been there?”
Lastly, there’s The Escapists 2. It’s what happens to a video game when you mix a game like Pokemon Diamond Version with a Prison Break style storyline. While living by the rules of the prison, players will secretly orchestrate a daring plan to break out.
On July 14, Epic Games will be hosting a one-day virtual conference for developers all in aid of the Unreal Engine. Unreal Fest Online 2020 is to be split into 50-minute presentations covering a range of topics, followed by a Q&A session to conclude.
The event description reads: “Whether you’re a game developer, architect, engineer, designer, artist, producer, or cinematographer if you create with Unreal Engine or are thinking about getting started, Unreal Fest Online is for you.”
