Today, developers SOEDESCO have announced that their indie adventure racing game Defunct is officially done and coming to the PlayStation 4 this week, on December 21. The game is described as being “Sonic-like” in gameplay, with players dashing around and using gravity as an ally in order to explore the world.
Judging by the trailer above, it seems like you’ll be taking on the role of a one-wheeled robot who races around various maps. Thanks to the gravity in the game, it seems as if riding along walls or even floating in the air won’t be a problem, but players who want more will have to pick up the game when it comes out this week.
For more information on Defunct, make sure to check out below:
Defunct is an indie adventure game with a focus on flow, speed and an engaging world. You are a broken robot that accidentally falls out of a giant cargo ship onto a post-human Earth, now inhabited by robots. You have to get back to your ship before it’s too late!
You are equipped with a Gravitize engine. It is used to create a separate gravity around yourself; this is the main source of your speed. Use this in downhills to accelerate. But be careful, using it uphill will slow you down. In addition to this the world is full of different speed boosts such as Enerjuice, which you can pick up and use to go faster.
These tools enable you to drive through the world, meet strange robots, fly through junkyards and boost your way back to your ship.
- High speed gameplay with unique ‘gravitation’ engine.
- Traverse 11 varied levels full of different climates, biomes and challenges.
- Unlock skins for the main character.
- School everyone with special (unlockable) tricks.
- Compete for the best completion times in time trial mode (which features 5 extra levels).
Defunct is set to launch on the PlayStation 4 on December 21.
