Pluto is a Planet!

Vostok Inc. held a press conference this afternoon where news of planetary scale exclusive content was first shared. That's right, we're declaring Pluto a planet! This isn't just some big PR stunt for upcoming Twin-stick shooter Vostok Inc.... oh wait... it is? ok, the good news then is Pluto IS a planet... exclusively on Nintendo switch! Watch the Press conference here

For the team here at Wired and at developer Nosebleed Interactions, Pluto is – and always has been – a planet, and a huge part of our solar system since its discovery in 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh. Its heart-shaped expression, first seen from across the solar system on July 13th, 2015, made us fall in love with Pluto all over again. Long distance relationships do work! Whether it’s 4.4bn km or 7.4bn km away, Pluto has a place in our hearts, and now a place in our game: Vostok Inc!

In Vostok Inc, you play as a corrupt, narcissistic yuppie hoping to make as much money as possible in a greed-driven, twin-stick shooter without a conscience. As the newly-appointed CEO of Vostok Inc., you have one goal: to become filthy, stinking rich. Piloting your very own ship, explore and exploit more than 40 planets across six different solar systems in your quest to earn ludicrous amounts of MOOLAH!

Start by landing on any planet to begin colonization, build factories and rake in the big bucks. Once the MOOLAH starts flowing, you’ll be able to upgrade your ship’s weapons and augmentations. Increase profits even further by finding and recruiting managers, consultants, and executives scattered throughout the galaxy.

Make sure you follow Vostok Inc on Twitter and Facebook!
