Howdy! I’m very excited to talk about what we revealed during today’s /twitchgaming Showcase: [email protected] – Drinkbox’s new game, Nobody Saves the planet . And by “Nobody,” you’re meant by me; you play the hollow-eyed baby-thing Nobody (and you’re likely to save the planet).
The Calamity is spreading monsters and gross corruption everywhere. The wizard hero Nostramagus is usually to be found nowhere, but you’ve stolen (borrowed?) one of is own magic wands and so are taking matters into your personal tiny hands. The wand enables you to morph into many unique forms – a rat, knight, horse, mermaid, robot, and lots (LOTS) more! It’s your decision to understand these forms and their powers to defeat the Calamity.
After tackling platformers ( Mutant Blobs Attack!!! ), metroidvanias ( Guacamelee! ) and dungeon crawlers ( Severed ), we wished to try making an Action-RPG the Drinkbox way. To us, which means removing our frustration points, and adding just as much variety and charm as you possibly can.
For instance, you don’t grind enemies to level up or unlock forms in Nobody Saves the planet . Instead, you complete quests. There’s plenty of quests to perform even though some are serious (“kill 10 enemies without getting hit”) some are less so (“fall in love,” “get sat on”). On early, you’ll figure out how to mix and match the talents of one’s forms, opening a bazillion combos. A knight that bites everything just like a rat? A robot that gallops such as a horse around? Without a doubt!
you explore the game’s vast overworld
As, you’ll discover dungeons and battle through them to push the Calamity back. A dungeon may be a cave or castle, but it may be a huge rotting pumpkin or perhaps a crashed UFO also. Dungeons are procedurally generated to ensure the overall game stays gets and fresh increasingly difficult the further you go. Always a fresh dungeon there’s, form, quest, or challenge nearby just.
Your final little bit of excitement to leave you with: we’re super jazzed to possess composer Jim Guthrie ( Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP , Below , “Indie Game: The Movie”) up to speed for the soundtrack! As usual, Jim’s work is completely incredible, and we can’t await you all to listen to it.
Nobody Saves the planet will undoubtedly be on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, later this season and Windows 10 PC, day with Xbox Game Pass and you will be on launch. We’ll have significantly more to announce once we get nearer to release even, so please turn to it forward!
