Planet of Lana is a cinematic puzzle-platformer where players take on the role of a young girl who finds herself lost in a world dominated by mysterious creatures and cold machines. Today’s trailer does a good job of showcasing what players are in for come launch, including a few shots of some of the friends that will be made along the way. For more on how Thunderful and Wishfully plan to tell a story of beauty and nature, you can read the synopsis below:

A planet that used to be a place of undisturbed balance between human, nature, and animal has now become something else entirely. The disharmony that had been in the making for hundreds of years has finally arrived in the form of a faceless army. But this is not a story about war. This is a story about a vibrant, beautiful planet –and the journey to keep it that way.

Planet of Lana comes to PC, Xbox, and Game Pass subscribers in just a few weeks. In the meantime, you can read our 2019 interview with Wishfully creative director and lead game designer Adam Stjärnljus, where we learned about how the team has created a game inspired by Inside, The Last Guardian, Journey, and more.
