Hardcore Platformer Tinertia Coming to PS4 in 2015.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Tinertia, a hardcore 2.5D platformer without a jump button, will be released for PS4 in the second half of 2015, developer Candescent Games together with Section Studios announced.

Rather than sticking with the genre norm of a jump button, Tinertia features a rocket launcher with infinite ammo, with players needing to help a robot named Weldon rocket-jump his way through 80 levels in order to escape from a mysterious planet called Tinertia.

"Our goal with Tinertia is to create a truly new platforming experience," explains Vilas Tewari, lead programmer and CEO of Candescent Games. "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."

Players will need to learn to connect rocket jumps in order to gain momentum and speed through the various levels while taking on giant robot bosses.

Tinertia is currently available via Steam Early Access.
