Impulsion Gains Maximum Momentum with Speedrun and Competitive Modes, Out Now on Steam


Master Manipulation of Time and Space and Make Every Second Count to Best Friends and Challengers Around the World


Paris — July 19, 2018 — Nothing is impossible when you can manipulate time ad space. Global game publisher Playdius announced today that the first-person platformer Impulsion, is now available on PC via Steam. Winner of the Ping Awards 2017 and Best Student Game nominee at Games Awards 2017 and BIG Festival 2018, Impulsion is a mind-bending first-person platformer where every second counts. Master the art of time and space manipulation, dual-wielding force field guns and breaking the rules of physics. Challenge yourself, friends, and players around the world in Impulsion’s Speedrun and Competitive Modes and climb the global leaderboard.


Developed by Driving Force Games, an independent game development studio founded by three passionate students from the Institute of the Internet and Multimedia in Paris, Impulsion aims to bring new and innovative physics-based gameplay ideas to the first-person platformer space.

In Impulsion, players find themselves in station HMR-1, a mysterious station designed to calibrate robotic units such as yourself. Guided by the sassy artificial intelligence Archie, players will be charged with navigating through a wide array of devious challenges to prove their worth outside of the station.

Armed with two force field pistols, players can dual-wield their weapons, manipulating time, gravity, and speed to overcome obstacles and avoid traps in each environment. With sharp wits, fast reflexes, and imagination, players must show off their skills and find the right balance between bold moves and caution as they take on 25 levels of increasing difficulty.

Impulsion key features include:

  • Fast-paced platformer in first-person experience!
  • Challenging levels providing hours of gameplay
  • Story Mode with an intriguing science-fiction story filled with funny dialogues
  • Competitive Mode with Steam leaderboards to challenge the world… and your friends
