INVERSUS Deluxe - Free expansion this fall!

Last time we talked, I was working away on the 1.5 update. Then I started adding more content. Then I decided to add some more new features. I certainly wasn't done adding more unlocks. And then I went and gave the whole thing a big visual upgrade. Looking back at the current game and what I had been building, I realized that it had become this giant beast of an update and just bumping the version number wasn't enough. This needed a name!

INVERSUS Deluxe is still going to be a free update for all existing players and it will be the version of the game launching on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

You can check out the trailer here (it's a Nintendo Switch trailer, but it's the same update you'll be getting):

12 new versus maps and 4 new arcade maps create a total of 50 unique maps for players to enjoy.
• Test your skills in the new single-player versus mode by facing off against AI Bots that scale in difficulty from beginner to world-class player.
• The addition of ranked online multiplayer rewards skill in both 1v1 and 2v2 games.
• New real-time soft shadows and high definition materials add a depth and richness to the screen.
• With the new split-shot ammo, players can fork bullets and shoot around corners.
• Equipping new unlockable motion trails allow players to show off personality in the arena.

Minor update 1.4.5

Hold on - there's a new update and it's not the big 1.5 update? What gives?!

Well, the upcoming 1.5 update has gotten even bigger (more on that in the near future) and I want to get some of the new additions tested out behind the scenes. That’s where this new build comes in! INVERSUS is now tracking skill in public versus battles and awarding (or deducting) Rank Points in the process. The goal is to have ranked multiplayer support front and center in game, but before I can do that I want to evaluate how well I’ve tuned all the settings.

If you want to try it out, you can actually check your rating on the web right now on this leaderboard! I should also mention that if you need help finding a match, the community Discord group is a great place to meet active players.

About This Game

The playfield looks simple at first glance, but once the action begins, complexity unfolds at a rapid pace. INVERSUS is a negative-space shooter for one to four friends. Player movement is constrained to opposite colors of a black and white grid. My walls are your paths and your walls are my paths. Each shot flips tile colors in an attempt to block, trap and close in on the enemy. Firing a bullet opens up a path for you while also closing off a path for me. Both online and local couch play are supported. The competitive versus mode pits players against each other in 1v1 or 2v2 battles. The single-player and cooperative two-player modes pit players against endless waves of enemies as they fight for high scores on an ever-changing board.
