There are two games in recent memory which left me with an immediate thirst for more. Not in terms of story answers or glitzier sequels – it was simply that I wanted more of the same experience.

It’s set inside an inverted planet, where gravity causes objects to fall away from its center and you’re consequently surrounded by a bubble of water. Watch the soft hues of the trailer below.
