Today the developer and now publishing studio, Serenity Forge, is launching their latest title,¬†Lifeless Planet. In this exploration game, an astronaut is exploring a distant planet (taking 15 years at twice the speed of light to get there). Only upon arrival discovering that it contains an abandoned soviet town. Much like people dispute the moon landing, this mission is no hoax as he is saved by a mysterious woman from a “strange and deadly phenomenon.”

So buckle up, and get ready for some great indie exploration. Check out the trailer for it below:

According to Serenity Forge’s founder¬†Zhenghua Yang, part of the proceeds for the Playstation 4 version will go towards science education. Zhenghua says, “Both Stage 2 Studios (developer) and Serenity Forge (publisher) seek to integrate education with gaming, which is why we partnered up with Stage 2 Studios to publish the game on PS4.” For more information on how the two are contributing to education, including donating to the Burke Museum in Seattle, click here.

So there you have it, not only are you going to explore and have some good old fashioned fun, but also support the kids at the same time.
