No combat? In a survival styled game? Well that's a bit unusual. Orangepixel who created games like Space Grunts, Heroes of Loot, Gunslugs and more has announced Residual.

Residual will crash you into a randomly generated planet with no other humanoid life. From here, you need to find a way to restore your ship to escape. Described as a mix of a survival platformer, full of exploration, crafting and light puzzles. There's no combat though, zero. No guns, weapons or violence.

You can see some real early footage below:

Like pretty much all other Orangepixel titles, it's going to release on Linux. It's also being built with some fancy new tech. Using their new "Nature engine", the planet generation is based on a bunch of rules including: Sunlight, heat or coldness, vegetation or sand, darkness or brightness and it will change what type of life is on the planet too.

You can wishlist/follow Residual on Steam.

Ps. Looks like we missed it but Orangepixel's other title, Snake Core (, Steam), also released recently and looks like quite a lot of arcade-style fun with a mix on the old classic Snake.
