The in-development perma-flying PC fighter Gravity Breakers has recently been updated to version 0.3. Along with the several system and balancing changes in this update, this indie sci-fi project has implemented its latest character: the alien drone Gerzil.
The developers shared some info on Gerzil’s battle design, and the new elements she brings to the cast:
Gerzil’s fighting style is savage and bloody, revolving around her ripping claws and retractable spikes. She is the first character with a grab-type special move: Monster Clutch. This move is still WIP but the final version will drain life from the opponent like a vampire. From a distance Gerzil fires webs, spikes, and insects.
Grappling archetypes tend to be hearty tanks, but interestingly, it seems Gerzil only gets her additional health through her grappling. This justifies her ability to be a little more mobile and versatile — appropriate for the projectile-centered battlefield of Gravity Breakers.
You can read the full list of balance changes — and purchase the early-access version of the game — through Gremlin_Ent’s site. For more information on the game itself, make sure to visit gravitybreakers.com.
