Playdead's INSIDE and ABE'S ODDYSEE are also huge influences on Adam Stjärnljus and Klas Eriksson in their debut video game.
It might not look like it, but PLANET OF LANA is actually Wishfully's very first game after a long career in TV and animation. Lead game designer Adam Stjärnljus and script writer Klas Eriksson who both co-directed the game have been working together creatively since they were thirteen years old and have always wanted to make a game.
We dive into the process of telling a story in an invented language, how composer Takeshi Furukawa (THE LAST GUARDIAN, STAR WARS CLONE WARS) fell in love with the game at first concept art and how it feels to be at the finish line after five years of development.
