While one thought emerges: Survive. All alone against the void, the explorer ventures forth. Due to finding food, minerals, and a way to fix their ship to return home.
At the start of every game, the proprietary Nature Engine sculpts a brand new world. While governing everything from climate and resources to plant life. All the way to certain nature based rules of Residual. Carve out an life on thousands of possible planets. Since each presents a different yet weird challenge. Find shelter from the blazing sun. Develop your power to stay warm during long, cold nights. You can also find creatures and flora that can help or harm.
Space holds the chance of freedom. But beneath the surface lies long forgotten secrets. Residual will have you discover an ancient civilization eager to make themselves known again. Through creative puzzle solving and creative dungeon diving. All lay bare the mysteries of the universe. But will this discovery aid a planetary escape? Maybe leave the lost pilot forever trapped in the void?

“I kept telling them not to go down that chasm. But do they ever listen to me? No!” chimed Pedey-B, the explorer’s constant robot companion and Personal Disaster Bot. “Whatever secrets are down there is not our concern. … Hey, are you even listening?”
“What lies at the heart of Residual is that yearning to explore, discover, and survive,” offers Pascal Bestebroer, the solo developer behind OrangePixel. “Every new planet means different, exciting stories for each player. Share your adventure with others who seek it!”
