Apparating out of seemingly nowhere, Gravity Ghost: Deluxe Edition makes its way to the PS4, and it's available now for download.
Here is the press release:
Gravity Ghost: Deluxe Edition, the beloved indie platformer, lands on PS4 today with exclusive new content. In this soaring tale, the ghost of a lighthouse keeper’s daughter searches the galaxy for her lost friend, the ghost fox. She’ll turn the whole universe upside down to find him, but the story she uncovers just might be her own.
Set in a beautiful hand-painted world, Gravity Ghost is a planetary platformer where orbiting is an art form. In more than 100 dizzying levels, put aerial skills to the test against planets that bounce, break, splash, spin, repel, and more. Peaceful gameplay, smooth controls, and unusual gravity mechanics define Gravity Ghost as an emotional, relaxing experience that will whisk players away for hours.
Animated in a charming hand-drawn style, and voiced by Emmy Award-winning actress Ashly Burch (Horizon Zero Dawn, Life is Strange), and Logan Cunningham (Bastion, Transistor), Gravity Ghost is a surprisingly human story about how love, like gravity, invisibly holds us together even as life threatens to pull us apart.
Gravity Ghost: Deluxe Edition is the definitive version of this critically acclaimed indie platformer. The PS4 version includes a new constellation with 13 brand new challenge levels, and a new playable character (Voy the ghost fox). This definitive release also expands the award-winning score by composer Ben Prunty (Celeste, Into the Breach, FTL) with three new bonus tracks. The Gravity Ghost OST won Paste Magazine’s #1 Best Videogame Soundtrack of the Year when first released in 2015.
“My wonderful team and I are very excited to finally bring Gravity Ghost to the PS4.” said Erin Robinson Swink, founder, Ivy Games. “It’s a story deeply rooted in my childhood in Canada, specifically the ghost stories and nautical tragedies I heard, and I hope it resonates with players too. It is my hope that the story of a single family, with all its complications, can have the same stakes as a story about saving the world.”
Gravity Ghost: Deluxe Edition is now available digitally for $9.99 USD on the PlayStation Store (North America and South America only). Through a collaboration with Limited Run Games, 2000 physical copies of the game will also be available for purchase starting on August 9. The original Gravity Ghostis currently available on Windows, Mac, and Linux via Steam or DRM-free on the official website.
