Developer PolyKnight Games has revealed on the PlayStation blog that its game, InnerSpace, arrives this January. The game takes place at “the tail end of civilization,” with players taking on the role of a Cartographer and uncovering the world’s story through flight and exploration.
InnerSpace‘s story is largely one of “cause and effect,” according to its developers.”This isn’t quite a post-apocalyptic setting, of scorched earth and radiation,” PolyKnight CEO Eric Brodie wrote. “It has maintained its beauty in its decay. Some ruins remain, and life, as it tends to do, still lingers. The landscapes have a story to tell, deliberately designed to hold true to the history of this place. It’s a colorful puzzle of sky and water, in the shadows of ancient gods, and we hope you enjoy putting the pieces together. If you believe something you see has meaning, it was most likely intentional.” Players will explore the Inverse, a universe of inside-out planets, and PolyKnight encourages players to “question everything you see,” as the world’s design offers subjective interpretations of its story.
InnerSpace releases for the PlayStation 4 on January 16th, 2018. PolyKnight’s “Into the Inverse” launch trailer can be viewed below.
