Inversus is an overhead shooter that mixes the color-switching mechanics of Othello and Ikaruga to create one of the most inventive shooters in recent memory. For that reason, the game easily found a place in our Best of PAX East list earlier this year.
And now, developer Hypersect has announced that Inversus will be released for the PC and PS4 on August 16.
“One of the key things I’ve taken from working as the lead sandbox engineer on the multiplayer shooter, Destiny, is the critical attention to feel and feedback in gameplay,” said Hypersect’s Ryan Juckett. “It’s what players will notice right away in Inversus, and something I’ve consistently seen people enjoy.”
A new trailer showcasing Inversus’s single-player Arcade Mode has been embedded above, and another focusing on the multiplayer-only Versus Mode can be found after the break.
