Former CD Projekt employees have founded a new studio called Starward Industries. Located in Kraków, Poland, the team is led by CEO Marek Markuszewski, a senior producer with experience working on The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077.
The studio is already producing a new IP called The Invincible, a first-person, sci-fi thriller set in a retro-future timeline. The game is scheduled to release on 2021 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC via Steam.
Waking up as a space scientist on a hostile planet, you embark on a mysterious mission to find the missing crew of your spaceship. Survival is a matter of your correct choices, taken whilst uncovering the secrets of the planet, bigger than anyone thought.
You are a scientist onboard an interstellar scientific expedition, suddenly thrown into a life-or-death rescue mission. Landing on a planet Regis III you have to find the missing crew members using some advanced space equipment, whilst relying on your brains and instincts to survive on the planet which quickly occurs to be unwelcoming. Soon you’ll discover that Regis III holds terrifying secrets which are uncovered while you’re piecing together the fate of your crew.
And as you delve deeper into the mystery, you realise that perhaps you are not alone, and that some places like this planet are better left untouched. But it’s too late to turn back.
Starward Industries have been taking shape since 2018, the development team counts with 12 designers with AAA experience, however, the studio will develop AA games.
“Starward is about bringing a meaningful experience to players on PC and consoles. We want to pursue quality mastered in previous endeavors and to deliver it in smaller, yet even and groundbreaking projects.”
