Planet of Lana: storyline and gameplay
Planet of Lana was scheduled to launch in early 2022, but the development team postponed the launch stating that they wanted to make sure that the game will meet the standards and live upto the expectations of the fans.
Wishfully describes Planet of Lana as a sci-fi saga which is led by a young girl who embarks on a journey to save her sister traveling through a hostile world filled with strange creatures and machines.
It all begins when a robot army invades the Planet of Lana which is a natural haven filled with lush green forests. Because of the invasion Lana and her sister are in great distress and try to escape. Lana’s sister is abducted by the robot army as Lana helplessly hides to save herself. She then goes on a journey to save her sister from the robot army. On her journey she meets a cat-like creature called Mui, which later becomes her best friend and companion. This intricately detailed story will run for generations through different galaxies.
Now with Mui as her companion, Lana explores the origins of the robot army through the vast green fields, the caves and the rocky mountains. Throughout this, Lana and Mui build a bond which expands the possibilities of the gameplay. Mui will help Lana complete tasks, solve environmental puzzles and also help her with encounters of the robot invaders. These stages of the game are really intense as Lana cannot risk getting spotted by the robots, she has to be camouflaged and hide from them.
Mui usually follows Lana throughout the map, Lana can make Mui obey certain commands like following her, asking Mui to go to a specific place. Mui and Lana will together do a lot of tasks. Since Mui is much smaller than Lana, it will be going into smaller places or jumping to higher areas. Both Mui and Lana have their own abilities which they can use to solve the often occuring puzzles, as their bond becomes stronger they gain more abilities which will help them progress to the next part of the game.
