Hi gamers, I’m the developer, Mario, and I’m extremely excited to announce that Remote Life can finally be played on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. The game has been very successful so far on PC and got over 90% positive reviews, and many great reviews in gaming magazines. After building a great following on PC I am very excited to let you experience the game on console.


What Kind of Game is Remote Life

Remote Life is a side scrolling space shooter (Shmup) with 16 gigantic levels, over 18 weapons and countless enemies and bosses. Experience a fast-paced action game with crazy and scary graphics, and jump into a brutal-fast-paced-techno-alien world.

The game offers great visual effects, a great atmosphere and a mysterious sci-fi story. You will be able to choose between three spaceships with different speeds, and several special vehicles that will make the gaming experience memorable. The 16 levels guarantee a great game variation, where each level is a completely new experience. Those include also special missions where you can explore huge open world levels. Collect over 18 different weapons and discover which of those are best to use during missions that are each one different from the other.


The game has several levels of difficulty that you can choose according to your skills and experience. Furthermore, an AI  system will analyze your skills and help you with extra lives if needed. Remote Life contains a huge number of enemies and no repetitive or boring enemy patterns, but enemies with aggressive AI. This assures that every time you play you will be thrilled like the first time that you have experienced Remote Life. If you are a fan of retro games and pixel art, you can switch from HD graphics to 16-bit or 8-bit mode. The feeling will be like in arcades or on retro consoles. One thing is certain: it can’t get boring!


Game Story

Free the world from this terrible nightmare before its sickening breath of horror destroys humanity. A huge and menacing alien hive is approaching our planet. The only way to defeat it is to enter and destroy it from the center. You are John Leone, an ambitious pilot, ready to fire all his ammunition into the jaws of horror! Grab your space jet and find out why aliens are attacking us, and experience the mysterious story behind this attack. But on top of all this: save our planet!

A Few Personal Words

This game has always been my dream game that I wanted to develop as a kid in the 80s. I started playing in the 70s with the Atari 2600, then in the 80s I switched to the Commodore and Sega Genesis which influenced me a lot. And now after almost 50 years I have fulfilled my dream—I would say, I am living my dream. I get so many fan mails from gamers who loved Remote Life. It is truly a big success.

During the three years of development I really did work so hard to achieve the best game I could create to give you an amazing experience. Surely the knowledge of retro gaming, since I personally went through many decades of games, is a big help in creating concepts of gameplay and mechanics. But a big factor was also Sci-fi movies of the 70s and 80s. I wanted to create a fast-paced action game with insane scary graphics and a credible alien world where you feel totally sucked inside. There are around 100 different enemies and traps that can kill you. It is an insane big number.

Every level has its unique style and enemies. Bony and scary level designs, or very organic designs , where even the walls are wobbling if you shoot at them. Or foggy desaturated levels. Levels that look mysterious and intimidating or are full of empty space.  I just love each of them. Almost all levels have mid bosses and end bosses. Each of these look crazy and outstanding. There are so many bosses that I cannot decide which one my favorite is.

The game did very well on Steam, and I’m confident it will also have success on Xbox. I am very proud of it, and I would like to encourage everybody to create a game, if that is your dream. I did it at almost 50, so if an older guy can do it, a younger person can achieve anything. Be brave my friends, and live your dream. I can proudly say, my game and I are part of gaming history, and I will not stop making games.

Enjoy the game my friends, and have a lot of fun!
