It’s been a while since we’ve heard from the creators of Separate and Guacamelée, but on Friday DrinkBox Studios presented their latest project, Nobody saves the world. Revealed during Microsoft’s ID @ Xbox showcase, the studio presents the game as an action RPG that includes everything people love about the genre, without anything of the cruelty like grinding. Oh, and Jim Guthrie, the composer behind the music of Indie game: the movie and Superbrothers: Swords & Sworcery EP, writes the game’s soundtrack.
In an interview with PolygonDrinkBox co-founder Graham Smith said part of the inspiration for the game came from Final Fantasy Tactics and its Job system. You can see the influence of the 1997 Square PlayStation classic in the way your playable character, Person, has the ability to take on different forms. You will be able to become a mouse, a horse, a slug, a turtle and more, and you will have to use all the forms at your disposal to complete the game and its many dungeons.
Nobody saves the world will release later this year on Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC, where it will be available on Steam and the Microsoft Store. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will also have the chance to play the game over lunch on console and PC.
