Inflatable Arm-Flailing Tube Men Fighting Game Inflatality Hits Steam Greenlight
Steam has been no stranger to weird and unique, but low-risk games in the past. Despite its reputation as often hosting very unpolished and unfinished titles, the quirky projects on the service have still managed to shine and bring a bit of joy to PC gamers/internet culture enthusiasts. One fixation that has been a part of internet culture has been those wacky, waving, inflatable, arm-flailing tube men that inhabit the likes of used car lots and stores going out of business throughout the country to grab the attention of passers by. Now, these inflatable dancing man have a fighting game all of their own with Inflatality, available now on Steam Greenlight.
Inflatality has been developed and released onto Steam Greenlight by Hojo Studios, with this being their first title on the platform. The title uses a simple two-stick control scheme, to mimic the unwieldy movements of the rubber men’s appendages that are highly subject to the unforgiving randomness of mother nature’s wind patterns. The arm flailing attacks are also supplemented with various weapons, such as the Doom Hammer, Blade Bonnet, Hairstrike, and the Shockblock. The game also offers customization for your inflatable fighters’ color and facial expressions.
The game currently hosts four different backgrounds for engaging in flailing fisticuffs: Whiplash Motors, Demolition Derpy, Hardly Faire, and The Boum Boum Room. The title is currently only available through Steam Greenlight, but could see a full release on Steam if it passes through the full Greenlight process.
