Gravity Rush is a new PlayStation game with graphics inspired by French sci-fi comic artist, Moebius, responsible for graphics on films like The Fifth Element and Alien. Watch the concept film for the game here.
Gravity Rush is told in a graphic art style inspired by Jean Giraud, Frances's leading comic artists commonly known as Moebius, who passed away this March at age 73. Giraud drew for more than 50 years on design concepts and storyboards for a raft of cult science fiction films, including Alien, Tron, The Abyss and The Fifth Element.
Gravity Rush follows Kat, young girl struggling to regain her lost memories in a world unravelling before her eyes. A chance encounter with a mysterious black cat gives her the power to control gravity. She must use this new found power to save herself and Hekseville, a futuristic metropolis, from the Gravity Storms ravaging the environment. Kat matches wits with an unknown evil only known as “Nevi,” who conspires with the government and thwarts Kat at every turn.
Throughout her journey, Kat travels through vibrant environments with images in the cel-shaded graphics are brought to life through OLED technology delivering the crisp and vivid colours.
