After being delayed, Drinkbox Studios’ fun shape-shifting RPG is finally available on Xbox and PC.
from the manufacturers of and , Nobody saves the world is filled with the self-aware humor and vivid art style of the Drinkbox brand, while paying homage to classic ’90s RPGs. Inspired by Final Fantasy Tactic’s Job system, the game’s titular hero Nobody can transform in 18 different ways, including a egg, a slug and even a bodybuilder to complete quests and clear dungeons.
The game’s overworld and top-down aesthetic will be immediately familiar to fans of other classics like Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Drinkbox also brings new-school twists to the genre with clever level design and quirky combat that includes moves like the magician’s confetti bomb. But the fun really increases when you get the ability to mix and match attacks between forms, which unlocks over a hundred combos to help dispatch enemies.
If the game’s gorgeous 2D sprites weren’t enough to grab your attention, Nobody saves the world also features a soundtrack by composer Jim Guthrie, whose music has been featured in titles such as Superbother: Sword & Sworcery, Indie game: The Movie, and others.
Nobody saves the world is now available on Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and PC (Steam) for $25, or via subscription as part of Xbox Games Pass on Xbox consoles, Windows PCs, and Xbox Cloud streaming.
