    Selected Articles

      • "This is incredible."
        - Jon Carnage, Twitch.tv
      • "Quirky characters and papercraft aesthetics aside, Gravity Ghost offers a beguilingly pure gaming experience."
        - Daniel Nye Griffiths, Forbes
      • "[Gravity Ghost] brings an almost unbridled sense of joy to the gameplay — the stakes aren’t high so you actually get to enjoy the game mechanics. [...] And the gravity physics are really like nothing I’ve experienced before."
        - Megan Patterson, Paper Droids
      • "9/10 [...] Gravity Ghost has the potential to be this year’s independent sensation"
        - Emmeline P, GameSkinny
      • "Gravity Ghost is being the pristine ballerina that holds her awkward pose inside a musical jewellery box, but when the lid is closed and herself out of sight, she is able to perform her dance in a private universe, stretching each limb and aching muscle. [Its] barebones narrative seems so tragic and human and real."
        - Chris Priestmas, IndieStatik
      • "Gravity Ghost is heavy on fun"
        - Jonathan Holmes, Destructoid
      • "The little Indie Mario Galaxy that could"
        - Kirk Hamilton, Kotaku
      • "Another great E3 memory: watching the expression of pure joy on @aedavis's face while she played @Livelyivy's Gravity Ghost."
        - Anthony Burch, Hey Ash Whatcha Playin
      • "Movement is just incredibly enjoyable [...] It’s just really really satisfying and kind of downright relaxing. Additionally, soundtrack is A) Bumpin. Totally excellent, and B) Not surprising that it is because it’s done by Ben Prunty."
        - Ryan “Northern Lion” Letourneau, YouTube
      • "The sounds and music in Gravity Ghost fill you with a sense of letting go of real life."
        - Sam Hughes, The Sound Architect
      • "The music is perfect for the game, engaging but slightly depressing as it beautifully sets the atmosphere and is all around odd and otherworldly."
        - Stephen Wilds, CultureMass
