Following the colourful luchador metroidvania violence of the Guacamelee! series, developers Drinkbox Studios are returning to punch up fantasy in an action-RPG. Today they announced a release date of January 18th for Nobody Saves The World, a top-down ARPG with where players can transform into everything from a rogue to a rat, and customise them to be even weirder.
When evil rises in Nobody Saves The World, it’ll fall to use to save the world. Because we are Nobody. You see? It’ll have us learn forms to shapeshift into (15 , they say), everything from a rogue or dragon to slug or ghost. Then you can combine those with 80-odd abilities from across forms to create builds.
Their blurb has an energy I appreciate: “Play as an Egg that can leave a trail of slime and shoot fireballs!!! We can’t stop you!”
Lots of silly quests to help people to unlock all that jazz, they say. And online cooperative multiplayer.
Nobody Saves The World will launch January 18th on Steam
