The countdown begins as The Invincible’s landing page launches to coincide with the 100th birthday of Stanisław Lem
KRAKÒW, POLAND – SEPTEMBER 14, 2021 – Starward Industries, developers of the highly anticipated retro-future thriller, The Invincible, coming to PC, PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X, today invites players on an interactive, intergalactic journey via the game’s new landing page to commemorate the 100th birthday of Science Fiction writer, Stanisław Lem, and begin a journey into the unknown.
Each stop on the ship’s mission will mark some of mankind’s most important milestones in the history of space exploration as well as insights into Lem’s stories and works, allowing players to discover more with each click and scroll as the ship traverses the outer solar system and beyond, to new, previously inaccessible places. Perhaps even some that are forbidden to us as humans.
Players are encouraged to follow the countdown clock and the ship’s journey closely, where the real world and The Invincible’s game world are set to collide. Today’s point on the journey is represented by LEM’s star in celebration of the beginning of the year of Lem to mark his 100th birthday.
Inspired by the work of the bestselling Science Fiction writer, the story of The Invincible is a first-person single player Sci-Fi thriller set in a retro-future timeline. The game sees players thrown onto a distant planet, Regis III, set entirely in atompunk aesthetics. While technology in the game’s universe has advanced to the point of seamless space exploration, equipment remains analogue as the digital revolution has not taken place.
To kick off celebrations for Lem’s birthday and the year of Lem, Starward Industries are currently exhibiting at Megabit Bomb, the Festival of the Future in Kraków. Take a look at the press kit below and keep a watchful eye on Starward Industries’ social channels for sneak peeks from the event.
