Took the words right out of my mouth
Thunderful, Coatsink and Noname Studios have today released a new developer commentary video for their upcoming atmospheric 2D adventure, Worldless, which will be available on Switch November 21st. The new video offers a deeper look at how Wordless delivers a mix of metroidvania exploration, turn-based action combat and RPG-style upgrades.
Taking a closer look at the key gameplay mechanics in Worldless, Creative and animation Director, Joel Roset demonstrates how you are rewarded for exploring every corner of a level with new abilities to unleash in combat and how the map has been efficiently designed to show players what they have already cleared and what is yet to be discovered. Joel also explains how Worldless’ innovative mix of turn-based and real-time combat systems work, showcasing, for example, how a perfect parry system rewards skillful timing in defensive phases.
Worldless is set at a time where the rules of existence remain undefined. In this abstract setting, players will discover entities with opposing goals. One half is fixated on the virtue of their nature, the other is seeking to exchange it for their demise. This inevitably thrusts them into conflict as they battle for transcendence and you will find yourself embroiled in that fight, left to interpret the game’s mysterious narrative and its themes of growth and understanding for yourself.
