Summer Game Fest: First gameplay footage for SF thriller The Invincible


Game news Summer Game Fest: First gameplay footage for SF thriller The Invincible

Much too quiet since its announcement in September 2020, the very mysterious The Invincible has nevertheless seduced all those who had the curiosity to watch its first gameplay trailer during the PC Gaming Show conference. What should be remembered?

From SF novel to narrative adventure

As a reminder, The Invincible game is developed by the Polish studio Starward Industries – made up of around ten developers who have worked on The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077 and Dying Light. This is’an adaptation of the eponymous science fiction novel by Stanislaw Lem and published in 1964. The Starward Industries team presents The Invincible as a narrative adventure. More precisely, we are told about “philosophical adventure, pure science fiction and atompunk taking place in a retro-futuristic aesthetic”.

The player embodies an astrobiologist named Yasna who wakes up on a hostile planet following an interstellar expedition that has gone wrong. The heroine finds herself embarked on a dangerous rescue mission in search of her missing crew members. True terra incognita, the world of Regis III is the scene of disturbing scientific phenomena and seems to conceal many secrets beneath its dusty surface.

Over 5 minutes of gameplay!

It cannot be said that Starward Industries was stingy with this presentation. For its first in-game video, The Invincible offers no less than 5mn30 of gameplay sequences illustrating how the game system works in subjective view and above all the very special atmosphere of the title.

The Invincible will be published in partnership with 11 bit Studios (which is also unveiling its The Alters project as part of the Sumer Game Fest), whose director of external development is a big fan of the work of Stanislaw Lem.

When many of us were teenagers, Lem gave us a vision of the future that seemed surreal. As a reader, I couldn’t imagine the world of The Invincible being more tangible than that depicted in the game. As a Polish publisher, whose mission is to present meaningful entertainment, we couldn’t let pass the opportunity to undertake a game based on such an important element of Polish cultural heritage as Lem’s book. – Marek Ziemak (Director of External Development at 11 bit Studios)

After a new postponement, The Invincible is only expected in 2023 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.

What is Summer Game Fest?

No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
