Explore Planet Alpha's strange world on Switch this year

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

It's a whole new world.

Sci-fi platformer Planet Alpha will be launching on Switch in 2018.

The release comes through a partnership between publisher Team 17 and Danish indie developer Adrian Lazar.

The game is a side-scrolling platformer in which you explore an atmospheric alien world as its local wildlife is beset by an invading force. As you explore more of the world you’ll gain the ability to rotate and control the planet.

Lazar began work on Planet Alpha in his spare time back in 2013 but has since recruited an international team to progress development.

Team 17 has now been secured as a publisher for the title, though no release date has been confirmed as of yet.
