Lifeless Planet is an indie game that was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2011 and later released in 2014. The game features breathtaking scenery and a thrilling storyline—so much so, that it was only a matter of time before someone asked, “Wouldn’t this make a great movie?” We think so too! Lifeless Planet has come home to Kickstarter to fund a live-action adaptation, which will fill in prequel elements to the game’s main storyline.

Every tone it attempts is struck with confidence and talent, from creeping horror to outright terror to reflective serenity.

Lifeless Planet is bold and memorable...a truly efficient payload. Fire it up and be transported.

A grand achievement in video game design. (5 Stars)

His mission to a distant world leads to a discovery beyond belief...but he didn’t go alone.

In the game Lifeless Planet, an astronaut wakes up to find that he’s been left alone at the crash site after being knocked unconscious during the landing. He assumes his crew members either left him for dead or otherwise thought their only option was to continue their exploration without him...

Lifeless Planet: Arrival is their story.

Initial inertia

David Board and Stage 2 Studios have been approached by several production companies looking to turn Lifeless Planet into a film, and have chosen to collaborate with Wayside Creations. The main goal of both the game developers and the filmmakers is to enhance the Lifeless Planet universe, without taking anything away from the gamers’ experience.

Wayside Creations has a marked history of working closely with game developers on adaptations. This project is no exception, and is intended to be a true collaboration with Stage 2 Studios. David Board has signed on as a producer; together, we will strive to tell a new story in the Lifeless Planet universe.

Lifeless Planet: Arrival will be shot in a 5-7 minute short film format. However, if the budget allows, we’re more than open to expanding the project into something larger, both in scope and depth. Stay tuned for our stretch goals!

(Space)suit up!

David Board of Stage 2 Studios grew up loving games like Out of this World, The Dig, and ICO. Fueled by his desire to create a gaming experience in the spirit of those classic adventure games, he began developing the Lifeless Planet story in 2011. The game was successfully funded (and then some!) on Kickstarter, and released in June 2014. Lifeless Planet is currently being ported to the Xbox One.

Wayside Creations is a Los Angeles based production company that specializes in live-action video game adaptations. Since an initial Fallout fan film in 2011, Wayside has produced two seasons of Fallout: Nuka Break, as well as the award-winning short Fallout: Red Star. Together, they total over 100 minutes of content and have been viewed more than 8 million times. Even Chris Avellone and Tim Cain (story developers, original Fallout game) have gotten involved in crafting the Nuka Break story. With a strong record of uncompromisingly high-quality content and an award-winning costumes and make-up department, Wayside Creations is fully equipped to crash-land onto the Lifeless Planet.

 

Risks and challenges

Your mission, should you choose to accept.

All independent filmmakers can expect the usual risks and delays. Common delays during a production are attributed to location and talent scheduling conflicts. We will counteract these by spending a considerable amount of time in pre-production, working out all the details before we begin shooting.

A Kickstarter itself is a challenge, because it’s all or nothing. Decidedly less of a risk for backers, though, because you won’t be charged unless we make our goal -- so if you thought you were funding a $20,000 project, you won’t wake up one morning to find that you’re the only backer on a $20 project. That is the precise reason we choose to fundraise on Kickstarter: You. Please help us make our goal by donating and sharing the link with your friends and family.
