About this game

DEVELOPER NOTE: if you are running on Android version lower than 11, an update is coming in 1 or 2 days fixing the start-up crash! (sorry)

Residual… a new breed of survival platformer from OrangePixel.

In a forgotten galaxy full of strange planets, a lone explorer crash-lands on one with an ancient alien secret. Venture forth from the shipwreck across a harsh, unpredictable, procedurally generated world. Harvest food and make campfires to stay alive. Craft science-fiction survival tools like teleporters and mining devices. Unearth alien technology capable of repairing the ship. Hunger, cosmic storms, hostile plant life and the mysterious ooze are among the many obstacles you’ll face.

You won’t be alone! PDB (a snarky floating Personal Disaster Bot) will follow and assist you along the way. Sometimes. PDB also helps you discover the hidden lore, revealing the history of the planet as you explore deeper and deeper, assuming you can survive!

OrangePixel’s uniquely designed Nature Engine generates 1000’s of planets from a vast set of environment-based rules, then drops explorers on a world brimming with potential. If a planet orbits close to the sun, intense heat, high winds, and sparse vegetation will pose a set of challenges wildly different from other worlds. Further from the sun, long nights make stamina easier to maintain, but reduced solar power turns every suit function—like scanning the planet—into a critical decision.

Residual welcomes players to a non-violent survival experience with limitless possibilities and no traditional combat. Jump and descend through colorful, highly detailed pixel art evoking classic 2D platformers. Solve light puzzles to reveal secrets of a long-lost civilization. Select a male, female, or non-binary protagonist, customize survival parameters like how fast time advances, and race to repair the ship, dig up ancient secrets, or collect data entries on hundreds of undiscovered objects.

This game is an absolute mess. I have to play it in battery saver mode to get it to run at the correct speed. The controls are abysmal. I have been playing for hours to get the required sealant to get off the first planet, then my backpack gets a hole in it, and I lose the required blazer behind a block, breaking the game. Who puts a mechanic like that into a game? Too bad I spent too much time just trying to get the game to run in order to get a refund.

I was apprehensive because of the reviews, but I saw a character select screen and decided to take a chance. Im so glad I did. The graphics are pretty and the game play is like a platformer. The only things upsetting me are the health bars that flicker in and out and they 5 list what they correspond to (health, food, sleep) and the voice of the robo was grating, but you can turn robo voice off in the settings. You can also change the timescale in the settings.

Seems like an interesting game, but the touch controls are problematic. On my android 12 curved device it seems that the control locations are not precise so I need to press multiple times near the general area of the button. This is also the case for menu navigation not just the in game controls. Also, pressing the phone's back button exits the game instantly and if I reopen the application it starts a new game on a new planet. Much to improve. Have not tried with a controller
