Polish author Stanislaw Lem’s 1964 sci-fi thriller, The Invincible, is being made into a videogame by Polish game company, Starward Industries. Sayeth PC Gamer:

The Invincible is a 1964 hard sci-fi novel by Polish author Stanislaw Lem about the crew of a powerful deep-space vessel that lands on the planet Regis 3 and learns some hard lessons about the meaning of life. In 2021, it will also be a videogame inspired by that novel, developed by a new Polish studio called Starward Industries.

“The Invincible, which has been secretly in the making for some time, combines a fascinating setting, iconic story, and an established non-linear gameplay to deliver a truly unforgettable experience,” Starward Industries CEO Marek Markuszewski said. “The studio believes in the power of interactive storytelling, and wants to engage gamers of all skill levels in crafting their own paths in the peculiar world of a distant, malevolent planet.”

The game is being rendered in an atompunk style. The team working on it has also worked on Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077, Dying Light, and other stand-out titles.Image: Starward Industries

Be honest. How many plastic lids are stashed away in your kitchen? No, seriously…how many? Go ahead and check that black hole of a cupboard down there and find out. We’ll wait… Was the number up over 20? Over 30? More? Now the second question is…could you even guess at which containers actually fit half… READ THE REST

Music is hugely liberating.
