Gravity Ghost  



Erin and her little ghost: Gravity Ghost up for pre-order


11:30 PM on 08.26.2013



Gravity Ghost is that new 2D platformer that will have people saying "Oh come on, another indie 2D platformer? Gimmie a break!" before they play it and "... actually, this is pretty darn great." after they play it. I have a hard time imagining anyone disliking it. It's so light, nearly completely free of demands, offering multiple types of rewards simultaneously to encourage progression without ever punishing the player too heavily. It's like the feeling of Animal Crossing with the thinking of Super Mario Galaxy, all with style that's smart, charming, and personal. Developer Erin Robinson has been hard at work on this one for a while, and it shows.

We'll be checking out the latest build of the game at PAX, but in the meantime, you can pre-order the game right now. Pre-order customers get the game for 33% off the launch day price plus an additional digital copy to give away. The developer encourages you "Find that person in your life -- an old friend, a parent, a smart little kid -- and give them your extra copy when the game comes out." Once you play the game, you'll understand why.

You can also pre-order the Gravity Ghost soundtrack from Ben Prunty (FTL) at a discount, and can score a free song from the soundtrack just for visiting game's new webpage

Gravity Ghost is pretty so I took a bunch of screenshots

I just finished playing through Gravity Ghost (expect a review later today), and as I tend to do with less action-focused titles or sequences, I took a lot of screenshots along the way. Not only does Gravity Ghost's planet-or...more

Gravity Ghost story trailer hints at protagonist Iona's origin

In Gravity Ghost, the player controls Iona, who is a colorful ghost. The story is told through flashbacks, with scenes showing that Iona was not always a ghost. My scientist deductive reasoning tells me this: at some point s...more

Gravity Ghost's zen planetoid platforming coming on January 26

Funny, I feel like I just posted about the release date for a delayed indie game featuring voice work by Ashly Burch and music from some of my favorite composers. Talk about déjà vu. In contrast to There Came an...more

Gravity Ghost dances between planets, makes Newton proud

We have had our eyes on Erin Robinson's Gravity Ghost for only a short while now, but every time we get to talk about it, we can't help but spew nice things about the title. As a PAX 10 alumna with 2010's Puzzle Bots, it's no...more

Mekazoo has a cheeky rhyme for tricky gameplay

“When in doubt, switch them out.” Sage-like advice, really. That’s what Mekazoo’s creative director Jarrett Slavin had to tell me to do when I showed obvious struggles playing his demo. I’m no st...more

Slender: The Arrival is out on PS4 and Xbox One today

Do people still think Slenderman is scary? I don't really know; it seems like the well-dressed humanoid has faded from the collective consciousness lately. Maybe it's just that I don't visit meme websites any more. Slender: ...more
