The first hour of the Summer Game Fest 2021 Kickoff Event passed with constant announcements and gameplay footage, including many minor or debuting developers. Planet of Lana - a hand-drawn platformer from Wishfully was among these projects. The heroine of the game has to survive in a world changed after the arrival of a mechanical army, but it's not about fighting off the invaders.
The gameplay is based on the creature accompanying us in solving puzzles and traveling through locations. The devs also promise dynamic, arcade sequences, as well as "programmed" but not "predictable" enemies. Planet of Lana will be released on Steam, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S in 2022.
Passionate about video (and other) games for years, he completed an Mba in linguistics, defending a thesis about games. He began his adventure with Gamepressure in 2015, writing in the newsroom, later also covering film and – oh, horror! – technology (also contributor to the gaming encyclopedia). He started with platformers, which he still dearly loves (including metroidvania), but he's also interested in card games (including 'analog'), brawlers, soulslike games and basically every other type of game. Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
