Inverto – Open Alpha


Inverto is a first person shooter-puzzler with a touch of parkour, that’s inspired by Prey, Portal and the work of M.C. Escher, where you have the ability to manipulate gravity through six axis.  Even in Alpha it’s a good looking game, levels have with a strong visual style that feel like a more colourful version of Portal, but with a definite Escher quality about them too.

The gravity manipulating mechanics are great fun to play with and make things pleasantly disorientating.  Shooting certain panels on a wall (or roof) with your GraviGun, causes gravity to instantly flip, making the surface you shot the new “floor”, allowing you to access new area you couldn’t reach.

It’s an intelligent and well designed puzzle game that not only tests your problem solving skills, but your sense of direction too.  It’s easy to get lost when you don’t know which way is up!
