What is Graviter About?
In Graviter you play as a comet whose cat, decided to go walkabout in the middle of space. Pretty standard stuff, I think we can all agree. Unfortunately, Comet’s cat got lost on the way home. Luckily, considering this a cat and also it accidentally got lost, this puss also left some pretty handy clues around. Your job is to use these clues to help capture kitty again, and bring them home.
In the words of the developer, “Graviter centres around using physics to your advantage, manipulating the size and position of celestial bodies, and launching yourself through that self-made obstacle course to collect galaxy map fragments. Only completing the map will lead you to your kitty, so make sure to collect all of them! If that seems like a lot – don’t worry, you’re allowed to paws… sometimes.”
