"16-Bit Metroidvania Style-Platformer"
LANIAKEA plays in the planetary system Trappist-1, 40 LY away from Earth, where mankind tries to settle down on new found exoplanets after the big extinction on earth in 2090. They raised up the "Gillion Space Colony" 3 years ago on Trappist-1G to do biological researches.
Here, you are the 19 years old girl LANI ALMACH which is working for the USSA (UnitedSpaceSurvivalAgency) as a space-courier to transport goods, spareparts & drugs between the agencies colonies. On board on her ship, she travels with her cats PAUL and ROMY, so she isn't alone when flying through space for long time.
It was the 7th of march when LANI received a message from the USSA headquarter that they have lost contact to GSC about 3 months ago. Since she is the nearst ship available to the outpost, her order is to check what went wrong on Trappist-1G.

First of all: Since the last play- & downloadable demoversion of the game is/was about over 6 month old I decided to remove it completely. I do not want to spoiler too much of the game in an early/buggy version anymore. I will put a REAL demo (verticle slice) back online, when the game reaches proper quality stages and is heading for a final full release. But this will take some months to go. For so long, I will give you some little sneek peek screenshots or informations about once a month of the work going on, so you can see what the game is heading to.
To communicate with people more directly who are interested in helping developing and testing the game I started a Discord Server/Channel under:
Discord.gg ...feel free to join ;-)
For its "birthday" here are 2 nice artwork wallpapers in 1920x1080 for you Desktop
The old playable demo-/alphaversion contained about 60 Rooms you could discover. In the last months I could raise these number up to now 170 Rooms and so the complete Map design is about 80% finished. Still a lot of details are missing but it is nice to see that the world is becoming bigger and bigger.
Here are some new screenshots:
Btw: This week I started implementing the "Skill Stations" where LANI can optain new Skills.
Using these machines will conceptual look:
That is all for now. See you on...
