“Hardcore” Platformer, Tinertia, Coming to PS4
Candescent Games and Section Studios have announced an upcoming “hardcore” platformer, Tinertia, which will be heading to the PlayStation 4 in the second half of 2015.
Candescent CEO, Vilas Tewari, said the game does not feature a “jump” button, and instead, gives players rocket launchers with infinite ammo. “If you like rocket jumping and physics, you’re in for a treat!” he added. According to an official description of the game:
Tinertia is a 2.5D platformer. The levels in each world are physically connected to one another and wrap around like mazes.
Tinertia’s design pillars are depth and mastery. The game worlds are crafted to be challenging, yet they have lots of room for competition through speed and clever use of rockets. As you play through the game you’ll learn to connect your rocket jumps and leverage momentum to go faster. Your speed is only limited by your mad skillz! Expect intense moments and sweaty controllers as you fly through the environments and take on giant robot bosses.
Tinertia will be playable at the PlayStation Experience event this December.
