From Hypersect, Inversus is a minimalist action-strategy game releasing in spring 2016 for PlayStation 4.
Featuring single-player, local multiplayer for up to four people, and online leaderboards for arcade play in single and co-operative modes, Inversus mixes territorial strategy and arcade shooter elements. As shown in the above trailer, you fire your shots to trap the enemy, block incoming fire, and flip the tile colors to increase your range of movement.
As for the modes, Versus sees you and up to three other players battle in 1v1 or 2v2 matches, while Arcade is all about playing solo or co-operatively to get a higher spot on the leaderboards.
Here’s the description for Inversus:
INVERSUS is a mind-bending action-strategy game for one to four friends. Player movement is constrained to opposite colors of a black and white grid. Each shot flips tile colors in an attempt to block, trap and close in on the enemy. Every round evolves into a unique battlefield.
