INheritage: Boundary of Existence Is A Bullet Hell With A Focus On Story

By Eugene . November 22, 2013 . 3:31pm


Just because bullet hell shooters are normally associated with Japan doesn’t make the country the sole owner of the genre. For instance, Indonesia has put out its own spin on the genre with INheritage: Boundary of Existence—an iOS game which features parts of the Indonesian culture.


It’s also got a visual novel storyline weaved into its plot along with fully voice-acted dialogue, and players control a character who might have hurt the one they love with… their ego?


Now, one might think it a little hard to control a bullet hell game which relies on precise movements to survive the bevy of blows being shot at your character on screen, but developers Tinker Games—based in Bandung, Indonesia—has promised that the game features a “smooth and unique hand gesture” system to help out with that.




Additionally, what we usually call “Options”—the little things that tag along with your ship/character and shoot various other bullets—are called Rakyan here and you’ll be able to unleash special attacks as well to help clear the screen in a pinch. INheritage also promises full voiced dialogue, and the graphics look pretty on-par with others in the Japanese style of manga-inspired artwork.


INheritage: Boundary of Existence is out now on iOS.

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    Looks fun, but iOS only :(

  • Göran Isacson

    Looks interesting. I just hope that it can actually run on my iDevice… Don’t think that what I got is an iPhone 5 or later.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    O_o Indonesia keep churning out games which i don’t know at all. Going to be interesting to check this game here.^_^ Hope that gaming industry will be able to grow further in Indonesia.^_^

    • neocatzon

      Check out Mintsphere then, they also going below the radar in the country. One of it’s dev once said most download are not from Indonesia, sadly.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        let me say something..
        mostly if Indonesian hear something about “made in Indonesia”, they can’t help but being pessimist, thinking of “most of things that made in Indonesia are bad”.. that’s why it didn’t get much Indonesian enthusiasms. also Indonesian usually play games such like Angry Birds and Temple Run, so, most of them also don’t have interest in this kind of game..

        • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

          Well mostly, but i surely not here. Made in Indonesia nowadays is actually better than made in China lol. As many of Indonesian product is actually quite good. We are only unable to compete in pricing here.T_T

          • Renaldi Saputra

            yeah, I know some ppl didn’t think so, but majorly ppl think so.. especially electronic stuffs

        • neocatzon

          That don’t have to be always the case but it certainly holds some truth. We may lack in so many ways, but it’s a progress nonetheless, instead not having anything in store.

  • Seven of The Scions

    I personally hoping that Indonesia become one of the nation with game industry.
    it’s one of my dreams.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      I hope so :)

  • dracometeo

    They were selling the Official Art book on AFA indo 2013. The main character name is Nala, the white Tiger. Some character got a really, really sad stories ;_;

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Sad stories is my fav here. So, i guess i will need to check this game ASAP.^_^

  • alfare

    I’ve checked out its demo. IMO there’s still room for improvement in the storyline and art. But the controls are good.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Fiuhh. If the controls is good, storyline and art would be quite easy for upgrade next time here.

      The main basis should be great there which is the gameplay.^_^

  • Renaldi Saputra

    to android please

  • Kai2591
