Gravity Oddity, the gravity-bending space action roguelike from developer Invincible Cat, fuels up its jetpack for a Summer 2022 launch on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Steam for PC.
Gravity’s gone! Planets have started to shrink and shatter. Survivors create new colonies on floating rocks in space or live lonely lives in their ships. Fortunately, Rio Grande Corp. anticipated this disaster and created the Gravity Boots, empowering people to walk on any surface and live nearly normal lives. But Rio Grande Corp. may have an evil agenda: they’ve kidnapped the protagonist’s roommate, Gary. With Gary gone, how will our hero pay his rent?
Grab those Gravity Boots and go after Gary on a journey through space. Zip across asteroids and leap from ship-to-ship with a handy jetpack and modular raygun capable of teleporting its user to any surface. Fight on ceilings and walls to take out soldiers and turrets while dodging ship security systems. Master gravity in fast-paced, chaotic shootouts emphasizing verticality, precision shots, and platforming skills.
After blasting bad guys and wrecking ships, loot everything to find money, supplies, or one of 80+ stackable mods. Discover synergistic upgrades to empower the starting sidearm, with improvements like bouncing bullets, homing shots, or even spawning a decoy with each reload. Arm up and defeat the boss in each procedurally-generated stage to travel to the next area. Move with caution, as perma-death means the loss of those precious upgrades.
Customize the colorful, cartoony look of Gravity Oddity’s silly sci-fi journey by tweaking the protagonist’s costume and appearance. Coordinate outfits with both the protagonist’s furry friend Newton and their robot to look sharp while teleporting across the galaxy. Even the music changes to match the gameplay: while songs typically start off with piano, intense action amplifies the soundtrack, adding retro synth elements for the ultimate space experience.
“Designing Gravity Oddity has been creatively fulfilling because I’ve worked directly with my community,” said Tim Verrouil, solo developer and founder, Invincible Cat. “I asked them what they’d want in a game, and we came up with this concept together. It was tricky to make combat work on walls and ceilings but with their help, I think we’ve made it very enjoyable!”
Gravity Oddity will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Steam for PC. It will support English, French, Spanish, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, German, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, South Korean and Japanese.
