Burbank, CA – July 30, 2015 – Gamers seeking a platformer that balances explosive action with graceful flight, the search is nearly over! Indie studio Candescent Games, Inc., and design partner Section Studios, along with indie games partner Reverb Triple XP, announced today that the dynamic action-platformer Tinertia will launch Thursday, September 3 on Steam. Igniting the PC world with rocket-powered love, Tinertia is built on the premise of Quake-like fun, Sonic-like speed, and precision controls…all without a jump button!
In Tinertia, gamers play as Weldon, the inauspicious robot who is equipped with a powerful rocket launcher that enables players to propel themselves through a kaleidoscopic series of challenging industrial environments. Weldon is stranded on a planet controlled by the evil ARC that has identified him as a threat and is now prepared to destroy him at any cost. Geared for the streaming generation with easy-to-pick-up but tough-to-master mechanics, Tinertia challenges gamers to master rocket-jumping. Players will control the momentum, rhythm, and speed of Weldon to launch him over deadly obstacles, outrun robo-bosses, and ultimately escape off the planet. Featuring leaderboards with saved replays of friends as well as the best players in the world, Tinertia will push gamers to see who is the ultimate master of rocket-jumping.
Here is the new Tinertia Slums trailer:
Tinertia will launch Thursday, September 3, on Steam for Windows PC and is in development for PS4 and Xbox One via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program.
