Action-RPG ‘Nobody Saves the World’ Revealed for Xbox and PC; Releasing Later This Year

Drinkbox Studios, the developer behind cult classics Guacamelee! and Severed, have revealed a brand new Action-RPG they are working on during the first-ever [email protected] Twitch Gaming Showcase. This title, Nobody Saves the World, is stated to be a new twist on the Action-RPG genre.

Players take control of a character named Nobody and utilize a powerful magic wand that morphs them into different Forms to clear dungeons, solve puzzles, and complete quests. The title also features an original score composed by acclaimed Sword and Sworcery composer Jim Guthrie.

Ian Campbell, the Lead Designer on Nobody Saves the World, had this to say about the upcoming title:

“Nobody Saves the World is full of everything we love about Action-RPGs, and none of the stuff we hate. Gobs of forms and abilities, dozens of dungeons, hundreds of quests, tons of character customization – and no grinding! It’s packed with the Drinkbox charm you know and love… OH and also, you can play as a Horse!”

You can read about this title’s key, advertised features below:

  • QUESTING, NOT GRINDING: Player progression and new abilities are obtained exclusively by completing quests, not by defeating monsters. Quests range from “Complete a Dungeon” to “Poison Baddies” to “Cheer up a fellow rabbit-lover.”
  • QUESTS UNLOCK NEW FORMS: Level up and unlock new Forms by completing quests. Each new Form has specific strengths and weaknesses and new abilities to experiment with.
  • COMBINE ABILITIES: Customize your Forms by equipping abilities from other Forms: Mix and Match abilities in fun and unexpected ways!
  • EVOLVING DUNGEONS: As you become stronger, procedurally generated dungeons will increase in difficulty and complexity to keep you on your toes!

Nobody Saves the World will be releasing for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, the PC Windows Store and Steam later this year. The title will also be made available on launch day to Game Pass for PC & Console subscribers.
