Independent developer PolyKnight Games has announced that its exploration flying game, InnerSpace, is coming to PS4 and Xbox One, as well as the previously announced PC, Mac, and Linux. Additionally, the developer revealed the game will launch sometime this summer on all platforms.
As you may know, InnerSpace first emerged on Kickstarter (where it found success). And it’s via a Kickstarter update post that PolyKnight revealed the above news, as well as revealed that the game has found a publisher in Aspyr Media.
For those that don’t know, Aspyr is one of the best known and largest Mac games publishers in the world, and a publisher who has recently began working with different indie games. According to PolyKnight games, given Aspyr’s expertise and how well it fits into their family of games, the partnership seemed like a “perfect match.”
With the backing of Aspyr, InnerSpace will now literally be the twice the game than what was originally pitched. The game is now nearly double the size and has had new worlds, mechanics, and demigod encounters added. According to PolyKnight Games, the final product will be much more “robust” and a “complete experience.”
In case this is your first time hearing about InnerSpace, here’s an overview via the game’s Steam page:
For as long as they can remember, the people of the Inverse have looked down at the sky, to the locked door of the Ancients, and wondered: What is beyond? For ages they have lived here, built their cities around the mysterious megalithic ruins of the ones who came before. Amid such mystery and grandeur, the people know only one thing for certain: Once, a long time ago, gods lived here.
Now, at long last, an archaeologist of the Inverse has unlocked the door of the Ancients. As his cartographer, it is your purpose to soar through virgin skies, dive into lost oceans, and chart the unknown. In a mind-bending world of inverted physics, discover relics of the past and uncover the true history of the Inverse, and what that holds for its people, its gods, and its future.
InnerSpace is an exploration flying game, and the first title from PolyKnight Games. Inspired by the character-driven narratives of Journey, Proteus, and Grow Home, InnerSpace began as a project among college friends and evolved into a successful Kickstarter campaign. This summer, PolyKnight is proud to welcome you and all its backers inside the Inverse. Your greatest journey is within.
Discover The Inverse – InnerSpace is a game about exploration, about player-driven moments both small and grandiose. Take your time, soar through the skies and dive through the oceans, and the secrets of Inverse will reveal themselves.
Relics of the Ancients – Scattered among the ruins are priceless relics that reveal key information about the civilizations that once were, as well as provide technological upgrades to your glider.
The Art of Flight – Featuring an ephemeral art style and soothing electronic musical score, InnerSpace delivers a thoughtful, provocative flying experience unlike any other.
