'Gravitational' Also Comes to Playstation VR - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on May 11, 2021 @ 11:32 a.m. PDT

Gravitational is a VR game that takes place in a utopic future, where large corporations are in a race with each other to develop ‘gravitational travel & control’ systems.

In Gravitational, we are a few decades in the future. Humanity continues to prosper and the race to discover new technologies grows every day.

Systems which will revolutionize the World.  Playing as Sebastian, a scientist at GraviCorp, you are at the heart of a huge incident resulting in the main core collapse. It is down to Sebastian to bring the accident under control and avoid a major catastrophe.

Facing challenges in inaccessible places and understanding the conflicts and traumas that Sebastian experiences, you navigate the world using both Sebastian’s wheelchair and also experience and master movement in ‘Zero Gravity’.

Through the mechanics and the story of the game, face challenges in inaccessible places and also understand the conflicts and traumas that Sebastian experienced, both for being a person with a disability, and for being one of the greatest scientists behind this new technology.

Gravitational will release digitally on July 13th and follow up with a physical release a few days later, on July 16th.

The release date announcement is hot on the heels of the news that Gravitational has won more awards to go with ‘The Itamaraty Social Impact Games Award’ won last year.  Last week at the Big Festival 2021, Gravitational took home the ‘People’s Choice Award’ as well as receiving an honorable mention for the ‘Big Impact and Diversity’ category.

Hugo Campos, Co-Founder of Electric Monkeys Game Studio said, "We are absolutely thrilled with the award.  Creating a game like Gravitational has been a great experience, it opened our eyes to social issues we didn't even know and showed us a new way of thinking.”

Rob Edwards, Managing Director of Perp Games, says “Gravitational has made a huge impact since its announcement and we are incredibly proud to be working with such a talented team as Electric Monkeys. Gravitational is an incredibly fun game, that makes you think about the world around you.”

Hugo Campos, Co-Founder of Electric Monkeys Game Studio added, “We are very glad to work with Perp, who believe in Gravitational and work alongside our team to help create the best experience for the game."

Gravitational is an entertainment game, at the same time that it has a strong message about accessibility, reflection, and empathy with people with disabilities.

MOVE WITH A WHEELCHAIR: After an accident, Sebastian lost movement on his legs and then started to use a wheelchair. Move yourself using the motorized and traditional modes.

ENTER GRAVITATIONAL FIELDS: This is one of the technologies Gravcorp has been testing for a while. Everything floats inside gravitational fields, even Sebastian.

HANDLE ENVIRONMENT OBJECTS: Sebastian combines one of his creations with some other Gravcorp’s technologies. This way, he can handle some heavy objects from a certain distance, making his tasks a little bit easier.

Gravitational is coming to PlayStation VR on July 13, 2021, followed by PC VR (Steam) in 2021.
