Gravitational follows the story of Sebastian, a scientist working at a facility developing a revolutionary gravitational travel and control systems. Following a disaster, Sebastian must bring the incident under control to prevent a major catastrophe. It’s a race against time in which players must face challenges in inaccessible places and use Sebastian’s wheelchair and movement in zero gravity to traverse.

Speaking about the game and its recent success, Electric Monkeys’ Hugo Campos says:

“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.”

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
