Test Flight: Airscape: The Fall of Gravity

Daniel West has just released a demo for Airscape: The Fall of Gravity. Players can snag the demo by visiting the game's Steam page, which offers a chance to experience the first six levels. In addition, the developer has announced that the game will be releasing in August for PC, Mac, and Linux.

The game is a gravity-focused platformer starring an octopus on an alien world. As the octopus explores oddly-shaped planetoids, it is affected by odd gravitational pulls. Jump upward toward another surface and gravity pulls you up toward it, climb a curved surface and the world spins around you, ride a tumbling block downward and jump away at the last moment to pull yourself toward more solid ground. The octopus remains at the center of the screen for much of his adventure, with the world spinning around based on his perspective of the downward force of gravity, and forcing the player to consider how his movements affect his abilities. The game also features swimming sequences through floating bubbles of water intermixed with the gravity mechanic.
