There have been few flying games on PlayStation 4. So few in fact that I can’t even remember any off the top of my head. This doesn’t include games that have flying in them as 1 aspect of the gameplay, such as GTAV or Just Cause 2. I’m talking about a full on flying experience. With that said, for those who want the freedom of the open air and the thrill of exploration, you should check out the latest from indie developer Polyknights, InnerSpace.
Set in a world where physics are inverted, explore a setting of interconnected, inverted spheres. Each is an interior world of once-inhabited islands surrounded by water, where gravity pulls outwards, away from the center. Piloting an agile aircraft, take the role of an unnamed cartographer to explore the various bubble-worlds, collect relics, and encounter each bubble’s unique patron deity- all in order to discover more about the universe, its history, and its future.
Above is about 15 minutes of gameplay. That was really only enough to show off the tutorial and give an idea of what the flight mechanics are like and the whole story aspect of the game. This includes what you can expect from explorations and how you can access other parts of the game. The game itself looks really beautiful. Lots of colorful bits and interesting things to look at. The whole exploration part of the game however is what is keeping me interested as I want to see what the Inverse is all about.
The one area however that has me down is the control scheme. While it works, I just don’t like it. I would love if there were other control schemes included or a way to customize the controls to your liking, but for now, there’s only this one control scheme and nothing more. For now I’ll have to deal with it and get used to it, but it’s making it a bit difficult for me to fly around with any grace as it’s the reverse of what I’m usually used to.
Aside from that, InnerSpace is a gorgeous game and one I’ll need to get into more. There seems to be this whole story locked away that needs to be opened up and that will come as you explore more and more of the world.
