Thunderful has shifted the release window of Swedish developer Wishfully's sidescrolling cinematic platformer Planet of Lana, now scheduled for release in Spring of 2023.

Players will explore a lush planet called Novo, during the invasion of a hostile robot army. Upon the capture of her sister, protagonist Lana flees to the wilderness where she befriends a cute cat-like creature named Mui. Together they must unravel the mysteries surrounding the mechanical invaders, while utilizing stealth to avoid capture.

Planet of Lana features hand-painted visuals and a soundtrack by The Last Guardian composer Takeshi Furukawa. The score was recorded in Budapest, with orchestration by Saki Furuya. Audio from the reveal trailer previews epic, ambient music that slowly builds alongside tribal drums, accompanied by vocals performed by Scottish singer Siobhan Wilson, in what is to be her first foray into videogames.

Planet of Lana will be playable day one on Xbox Game Pass, and also published through Steam.

From the product page:
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.
