Tinertia: Hardcore Platforming Without Jumping – PAX Prime 2015


Out of the many awesome things shown at PAX Prime 2015, Tinertia was by far one of my favorite things. Published by Reverb and developed by Candescent Games and Section Studios, you control Weldon, a tiny robot that propels himself to new heights using his rocket blaster. When playing Tinertia, I had to throw everything I THOUGHT I knew about platforming out of the window. Many squeals, yelps, and hearty chuckles were had as I attempted to clear the level without being able to jump.

The video below is a more accurate representation of what to expect from Tinertia.

Tinertia released on Steam on September 3rd. The platformer will be released to consoles sometime next year.
