Howdy! I’m very excited to share what we revealed throughout as we speak’s /twitchgaming Showcase: ID@Xbox – Drinkbox’s new sport, No one Saves the World. And by “No one,” I imply you; you play the hollow-eyed baby-thing No one (and also you’re going to save lots of the world).
The Calamity is spreading monsters and gross corruption in every single place. The wizard hero Nostramagus is nowhere to be discovered, however you’ve stolen (borrowed?) one in all his magic wands and are taking issues into your personal tiny fingers. The wand helps you to morph into many distinctive kinds — a rat, knight, horse, mermaid, robotic, and plenty (LOTS) extra! It’s as much as you to grasp these kinds and their powers to defeat the Calamity.
After tackling platformers (Mutant Blobs Assault!!!), metroidvanias (Guacamelee!) and dungeon crawlers (Severed), we needed to strive making an Motion-RPG the Drinkbox approach. To us, meaning eliminating our frustration factors, and including as a lot attraction and selection as doable.
For instance, you don’t grind enemies to degree up or unlock kinds in No one Saves the World. As a substitute, you full quests. There’s numerous quests to finish and whereas some are critical (“kill 10 enemies with out getting hit”) some are much less so (“fall in love,” “get sat on”). Early on, you’ll study to combine and match the talents of your kinds, opening a bazillion combos. A knight that bites all the things like a rat? A robotic that gallops round like a horse? You wager!
As you discover the sport’s huge overworld, you’ll uncover dungeons and battle via them to push again the Calamity. A dungeon could be a fort or cave, but it surely may additionally be a large rotting pumpkin or a crashed UFO. Dungeons are procedurally generated to verify the sport stays recent and will get more and more tough the additional you go. There’s at all times a brand new dungeon, type, quest, or problem simply across the nook.
A last bit of pleasure to depart you with: we’re tremendous jazzed to have composer Jim Guthrie (Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, Beneath, “Indie Sport: The Film”) on board for the soundtrack! As ordinary, Jim’s work is completely unbelievable, and we are able to’t look forward to you all to listen to it.
No one Saves the World can be out there on Xbox Collection X|S, Xbox One, and Home windows 10 PC later this 12 months, and can be out there on launch day with Xbox Sport Cross. We’ll have much more to announce as we get nearer to launch, so please look ahead to it!
