The Invincible is a first-person retrofuturistic thriller and an adaptation of The Invincible, a novel by Stanislaw Lem. It's the debut project of Starward Industries, whose ranks include developers who have previously worked on such games as Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3 and Dying Light.

Plot

The Invincible is set in an alternate world which never entered the digital age. All the highly advanced gear that appears in the game is based on analog technology.

We play as Yasna - a member of an interstellar research expedition. She starts the game alone, waking up on an alien planet, Regis III. She doesn't remember how she ended up here, but she knows for sure she didn't come alone. The remaining crew members have disappeared, however, forcing her to go find them.

As she learns what happened to her crewmates, Yasna soon realizes Regis III is a supremely dangerous place, explored by the agents of a hostile human empire and inhabited by aggressive non-organic beings.

Mechanics

The Invincible mostly focuses on exploration, storytelling and puzzles. As we progress through the game, we can talk to the Astrogator who provides us with advice over the radio. We can also use a probe and a set of tools to overcome obstacles.

The game makes use of the first-person perspective. The story is non-linear and changes depending on our decisions. The further we progress, the more we'll learn about the remaining crew members.

Technical aspects

The Invincible runs on the Unreal Engine, its retro-futuristic artstyle inspired by sci-fi novels and movies created early during the Cold War.
