- Candescent Games Inc CEO Vilas Tewari
announced today that Tinertia PS4 is rocket jumping to the PlayStation 4 console with details below.
To quote: Hello, PlayStation nation! My name is Vilas and I'm the lead programmer at Candescent Games. Together with Section Studios, we're thrilled to announce that Tinertia is headed to PS4.
Tinertia is a hardcore platformer without a jump button. "What? No jump button," you ask? Well, instead of a plain old jump button, we give you a rocket launcher with infinite ammo! If you like rocket jumping and physics, you're in for a treat!
Our goal with Tinertia is to create a truly new platforming experience. The platformer is the grandaddy of game genres, so to create something unique we tackled its core mechanic; the jump button. If you're like us, you have at some point rocket jumped around Quake, Unreal, or Team Fortress.
It's a fun and exhilarating experience due to its imprecision and randomness through physics. However, when mastered, it becomes a fast and precise way to traverse a map. With rocket jumping as the basis for movement, we created a twin stick platformer. You use the left stick to walk and the right stick to shoot in any direction.
Tinertia's design pillars are depth and mastery. The game worlds are crafted...
