Who would have thought that being a Nobody can help you save the world? Nobody Saves the World, a game by Drinkbox Studios, the makers of Guacamelee! and Severed is bringing a fresh take on action RPGs. This brand new game is coming to Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Game Pass, the Windows Store, and Steam later this year.
Nobody Saves the World on Xbox and PC will let you play as Nobody. Yes, your name is really Nobody, and you will get to play with a powerful magic wand. This magical rod will let you change into different forms to clear dungeons, solve puzzles, and complete quests in your adventure. And while you are at it, you can get to listen to Jim Guthrie’s original soundtrack, the composer of Sword and Sworcery. Ian Campbell, Lead Designer on the title, had this to say.
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!”
Player progression does not rely on grinding but through quest completion instead. You can get new abilities by completing quests that range from “Complete a Dungeon,” “Poison Baddies,” to “Cheer up a fellow rabbit-lover.” You can also unlock new forms through this method. And these forms give you specific strengths, weaknesses, and abilities that you can use.
You can also combine your abilities by customizing your forms by equipping other abilities from other forms. And since you are also getting stronger, dungeons’ difficulty increases to continue giving you a challenge.
Swap between forms, combine abilities, and complete quests to unlock more forms at Nobody Saves the World. Now is the time to be a Nobody and defeat the calamity to save the planet. What form are you looking forward to? Are you excited for a fresh take on RPGs? Let me know in the comments!
