Mild start to weekend, rain & snow chance
A Cold front will arrive overnight Saturday into Sunday and help to cool us down and potentially bring a few showers on Sunday . The weather service also called for a slight chance of rain and snow Sunday , along with a high in the upper 30s.

Development on Planet Alpha started in 2013 with Adrian Lazar working on the game solo in his spare time.

But is the world as "tranquil and serene" as it seems, or is there something more sinister at work beneath the surface?

They aren't telling me much about Planet Alpha, but the visuals are striking: peculiar landscapes with tiny details that nearly look like handcrafted pieces of art. Adrian Lazar has previously worked at IO Interactive and has contributed to Hitman (2017), Hitman: Absolution as well as Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days. Following this stint, the project found an investor in CAPNOVA, who is now fully financing the game, and presumably allowing Lazar to hire some help.

Planet Alpha is heading to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2018. We'll be sure to keep you up to date.
