Our Thoughts on LOST ORBIT

No Comment Yet

Created by PixelNAUTS, out for release on 12th May this is LOST ORBIT.

Stranded after his ship is destroyed in deep space, Harrison, a lowly maintenance worker and our hero, must struggle to find his way home…

LOST ORBIT centers around the exploration of space. Players take control of a lone astronaut (Harrison) who sets off on a dangerous journey to rejoin his civilization, armed with only an improvised set of equipment and a relentless spirit. Without the help of his ship, Harrison will need to use the gravitational forces of planets to navigate and propel himself through space.

Set in a world rich with comedy and tragedy, LOST ORBIT is a game filled with risk, loneliness, wonder, and death.

Game Features

  • Explore 40 levels set across 4 unique solar systems on your perilous journey home.
  • Each level features a detailed ranking system and time trial mode.
  • Choose and upgrade your set of abilities to customize Harrison as you see fit through a light RPG system.
  • Boost, swim, bounce, leap and teleport your way through a myriad of obstacles.
  • Simple and intuitive controls make the game easy to pick up, yet surprisingly deep.
  • Balanced between tense technical moments and cathartic graceful flight, LOST ORBIT is a game that is instantly immersive and satisfying to play.
  • Die alone in space; where no one will know of your struggle.

Greenlit on June 25th this game has taken a world that looks like a redesigned, modernised Asteroids and put in a cute character to explore with. This indie game has taken on an art style similar to Borderlands and features incredibly fast, immersive gameplay in a cool space setting that honestly, I love. If you’re looking for a cool game to spend a few hours in this is perfect. It’s a nice story, coupled with a character you can customise and constantly improve and the gameplay is awesome. I highly recommend this game, but at the right price. I wouldn’t pay more than £20 for this, even though I think it’s a cool game it could get old.

LOST ORBIT does have full controller support (I’d recommend playing with a controller), Steam Achievements, and Steam stats, but what I would have liked to see from a game like this is a local multiplay, possibly even an online multiplayer that expands further than the ranking system.

The Review


8 Score

"A cool indie game with a great art style, awesome gameplay, a cute character and storyline plus replayability (albeit limited). If this game doesn't bring out DLC and offers more levels for free and is cheaper than £20 I would definitely say this is a must buy."
