If you're an Android user with a version lower than 11 and encounter a start-up crash, fret not as an upcoming update will be released in a day or two to fix this issue. You're in luck because OrangePixel is proud to present Residual, a thrilling survival platformer game in a different galaxy. As a lone explorer, you crash-land on a planet with an extraordinary alien secret, and the only way to survive is to traverse across it, craft tools, harvest food, and put up campfires. Experience an unpredictable, procedurally generated world that presents many obstacles such as cosmic storms, hostile plant life, the mysterious ooze, and hunger.

But don't worry about being alone because a snarky floating Personal Disaster Bot called PDB follows you, offering you assistance and companionship. PDB also aids in revealing the hidden lore, exposing the planet's history as you explore and survive.

Residual employs OrangePixel's Nature Engine that creates thousands of procedurally generated planets based on unique environmental rules and conditions. Hence, every planet's challenges differ from other worlds, adding to the game's excitement and thrill. And since you're in a non-violent survival experience, there's no traditional combat, and you journey through a world with vibrant, highly-detailed, pixel art that reminisces classic 2D platformers. Plus, to reveal the secrets of an ancient civilization, you must solve light puzzles.

Customize your gameplay by choosing between a male, female, or non-binary protagonist and set your preferred survival parameters, such as how fast time advances. Do you race against time to repair the ship, dig up ancient secrets, or collect data entries on hundreds of undiscovered objects? The possibilities are limitless when you play Residual.
