The award-winning Gravitational will soon be taking players into zero gravity when it releases on PlayStation VR this summer.
Publisher Perp Games and developer Electric Monkeys have announced today that Gravitational will be releasing on PSVR on July 13th as a digital release on the PlayStation Store. For those wanting a physical disc to add to the collection, there will be a physical release on July 16th.
Today’s announcement comes with a teaser trailer that gives us a quick look at the game in action ahead of release.
Gravitational is a first-person physics puzzle game that has won awards for its social impact; the game puts you in the wheelchair of Sebastian, a handicapped scientist and you’ll have to face challenges that wheelchair users often come across in their daily lives, albeit with extra puzzles and a story of disaster.
Rob Edwards, Managing Director of Perp Games, says “Gravitational has made a huge impact since its announcement and we are incredibly proud to be working with such a talented team as Electric Monkeys. Gravitational is an incredibly fun game, that makes you think about the world around you.”
Hugo Campos, Co-Founder of Electric Monkeys Game Studio added, “We are very glad to work with Perp, who believe in Gravitational and work alongside our team to help create the best experience for the game.”
Gravitational takes place in a utopic future, where large corporations are in a race with each other to develop ‘gravitational travel & control’ systems. Systems which will revolutionize the World. Playing as Sebastian, a scientist at GraviCorp, you are at the heart of a huge incident resulting in the main core collapse. It is down to Sebastian to bring the accident under control and avoid a major catastrophe.
Facing challenges in inaccessible places and understanding the conflicts and traumas that Sebastian experiences, you navigate the world using both Sebastian’s wheelchair and also experience and master movement in Zero Gravity.
