- The Invincible—Starward Industries’ debut title—is scheduled to be released on November 6, 2023.
- The retrofuturistic title is based on Stanisław Lem’s novel and introduces the new main character, Yasna.
- We interviewed the CEO of Starward Industries, discussing different aspects of the game.
To talk about where the prospect stems from, The Invincible, at first, is a Polish novel with its roots dug deep into the science fiction genre. It’s penned by Stanisław Lem — an icon of his time — who found fame in an array of other publications as well. Visualizing The Invincible by Lem as a “ready-made movie script,” Starward Industries has put together a video game adaptation of the novel, and it’s nothing to sleep on.
The studio that has helmed this project comprises veterans from the likes of CD Projekt Red and Techland, both of which are A-grade video game developers with years of mastery speaking for them. eXputer sat down with The Invincible’s director Marek Markuszewski in recent times for an interview, asking some of the questions we had regarding the upcoming sci-fi thriller.
Read ahead for the full interview and Marek’s valuable insights into The Invincible.
Starward Industries’ debut title seems to be doing everything perfectly, at least in theory, having a short yet immersive gameplay, boasting great optimization, and having as many as 11 endings. However, after this interview, I realized that we must look beyond that to truly capture what this game wants to convey to the audience, and that would be the essence of Stanisław Lem’s novel itself.
The Invincible, originally published in 1964, takes the readers on a cosmic adventure wherein these events are uncovered that transcend beyond human understanding. The video game adaptation, although having a different main character, will still be very faithful to the novel, and everything that this character experiences will, in Marek’s words, “redefine what you know about science, the universe, and yourself.“
