Everything We Know About INSPIRE

INSPIRE Story Plot


INSPIRE’s story is set in a future where Earth is in the middle of an alien invasion. You are a Bionically Enhanced Collector, otherwise known as a B.E.C, employed by Earth’s global employment agency, Collector Corp.

Your life is on the verge of a life-changing transformation with the arrival of the Sentians, a mysterious extraterrestrial race. Will you become the unexpected hero that Earth desperately needs?

INSPIRE Gameplay


INSPIRE is a top-down action shooter set in a semi-open world filled with stylized environments and dynamic daily and seasonal cycles. As a B.E.C., you have access to a selection of high-powered weaponry that you can use to combat the aliens threatening to overrun your planet.


In addition to your weapons, you’re equipped with a transforming backpack companion, which can morph itself into various tools for traversal, offense, and defense, including a handy jetpack.

Although the game features plenty of shooter elements, it doesn’t seem to be a roguelike in the same vein as other top-down shooters like Nuclear Throne and Enter the Gungeon.


INSPIRE - Gameplay Trailer

INSPIRE’s latest trailer showcased the final build of a game four years in the making. Among the many environments shown in the trailer, several cutscenes and cinematics were also highlighted, along with Husman’s own techno score.
