At the end of last week Thunderful Publishing announced the game Planet of Lana. The announcement had millions of viewers, and received great spread and very positive comments in gaming media. This weekend, Coatsink's upcoming game REPLACED was also announced during E3, one of the world's largest gaming fairs, and became one of the weekend's most noticed games.

Planet of Lana is a cinematic puzzle adventure, framed by an epic sci-fi saga, developed by Gothenburg-based Wishfully Studios. Fans and the press praised the game for its distinctive visual style, and for game mechanics that bring together several modern classics. In the process, Thunderful registered an exceptionally high number of wish list entries.

“We are blown away by the response to Planet of Lana’s reveal at Summer Game Fest. So much love and anticipation for our game. Thunderful as publisher for the title has elevated Planet of Lana to a worldwide audience”, says Wishfully Studio’s CEO Adam Stjärnljus.

Meanwhile, leading gaming media selected Thunderful subsidiary Coatsink's game REPLACED as one of the weekend's most impressive game. REPLACED was hailed for a distinctive combination of 2D and 3D, a captivating retro-futuristic story and spectacular battle scenes.

“REPLACED is a really exciting title for us. It’s a visual feast with jawdropping gameplay mechanics, and we think players are going to love it”, says Coatsink’s CEO Tom Beardsmore.

“It’s great to see the positive response that our ambitious games have received to their announcements in gaming media. The response shows that the structured selection process that we have developed to ensure concepts and quality for our internal game ideas also works excellently within our publishing business. These games are examples of our overall investment in major gaming projects. There are clear synergies in being able to use and refine the same process when we invest in both internal and external game projects”, says Thunderful Group’s CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson.

Both Planet of Lana and REPLACED will be released in 2022.
