Namco Bandai’s latest gamble would probably make Newton turn in his grave. Inversion is a video-game that defies all laws of gravity. It’s also a third-person shooting video-game, so it’s interesting to see how the changes in gravity will affect this.
The starting point for Inversion is similar to the beginning of every disaster film. The main character is going about his daily life when out of a sudden, everything literally starts falling apart.
It’s common for films to give a glimpse of life before the disaster, but it doesn’t normally happen in video-games. That is possibly the reason why it feels compelling to play through these last moments, before civilisation collapses.
