A Walk in the Dark takes place in a dark fantasy world and features gravity inversion mechanics as part of its design. You’ll be able to run, jump and slide, encountering traps and strange creatures as you progress through stages.


The game has been out for several months now, but it popped up on Steam Greenlight this week, which does wonders for exposure. If you’re interested, you can read more about it here.
