Rocketing off on Steam today with its official launch, Tinertia is now available and promises to be a top contender for Platformer of the Year.
As far back as one year ago we took our first hands-on with Tinertia ahead of PAX Prime 2014 and loved every minute of it. Launching today on Steam, look forward to some of the best platforming available today – all without a jump button. Developed by indie team Candescent Games, Inc. and design partner Section Studios, Tinertia tasks you with adventuring as the robot Weldon, wielding a rocket launcher to propel yourself ahead, above and beyond a series of challenging industrial environments. Stranded on a planet controlled by the evil ARC that has identified him as a threat, Weldon must survive against a threat prepared to destroy him at any cost.
Harnessing the Quake-era physics of old, Tinertia isn’t a jumping platformer like Mario, but rather asks you to propel yourself using only your rocket launcher. Featuring an easy to pick up, tough to master game play design, Tinertia is ready to take control of your life, and your live-stream.
