Tinertia: Hardcore Platforming Without Jumping – PAX Prime 2015

Tinertia

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.

Nia has been gaming for about as long as she could hold a controller. Growing up with experiences like Super Mario Bros 1 – 3, The Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Streets of Rage, she was bound to blossom into the lovely specimen you see before you. She loves the classics but will play anything that requires buttons, a d-pad, or analog sticks. She hopes to one day leave her mark on the gaming industry as it has helped impact the person she is today.
