Antigraviator is being developed by Belgian development outfit Cybernetic Walrus. The studio is founded by four alumni from Howest University - Digital Arts and Entertainment, voted the best game design & development school of 2017 by The Rookies. The developers' use of the Unity engine has garnered them much acclaim, including a spot as one of the finalist of the 2017 Unity Awards. Unity Technologies recently used their experience and assets for the Unite Austin 2017 training day.

“With Iceberg Interactive on board as publisher of our first game, Cybernetic Walrus is getting its big tusks.” says Mike Coeck, managing director at Cybernetic Walrus.  

Erik Schreuder, CEO of Iceberg Interactive, adds: “We’re huge science-fiction fans, as you might have guessed from our portfolio. A futuristic racing game definitely fits the bill for us and we couldn’t be more excited to publish Antigraviator.”

About Antigraviator

In the year 2210, racing has evolved far beyond its expected limits. New terraforming capabilities paired with scientific breakthroughs in the field of antigravity have given birth to a new spectacle: the Antigraviator tournament. In Antigraviator, players will race on exquisitely detailed stages, full of light-speed danger, chaos and mayhem.

Gamers will guide their Grav in three gameplay modes across four different worlds with three tracks each. These dynamic courses come to life, while pushing the power of Unity to the limit.

Players can challenge their friends in the fiercely competitive multiplayer modes, either online or in split-screen mode. Race yourself to the top of the worldwide leaderboard and earn special ranked skins.

Gamers can sabotage their fellow racers by activating hover mines, damaging the environment to create a rockslide, causing tunnels to collapse, firing missiles from rocket launchers along the track and many more fiendish tricks.

Gravs are customizable, but choose wisely: deciding on one upgrade may mean compromising on another. Strategically tailor-make Gravs to gain the upper hand in races or face the crushing prospect of defeat. In addition to the customization options, unlockable skins will be available free of charge. 

In this futuristic high-octane racing game, defying gravity is the least of your concerns.
