From the developers of Guacamelee! 1 + 2 comes Nobody Saves The World, a new twist on Action RPGs, in which you play many different character Forms, each with their own unique gameplay mechanics.

Complete Quests to discover and swap between 15+ varied and distinct Forms. Mix and match abilities in unique and interesting ways to find and complete even more difficult Quests, and unlock more powerful Forms. Explore a vast overworld, clearing procedurally generated dungeons in an effort to beat back The Calamity and Save the World!

  • You Are Nobody: As Nobody (yes, you play as a character named Nobody), you find a powerful magic wand which allows you to swap into different Forms to clear dungeons, solve puzzles, and complete quests!
  • Questing, Not Grinding: Player progression and new abilities are obtained exclusively by completing quests, not by defeating monsters. Quests range from “Complete a Dungeon”, to “Poison Baddies”, to “Cheer up a fellow rabbit-lover”.
  • Quests Unlock New Forms: Level up and unlock new Forms by completing quests. Each new Form has specific strengths and weaknesses and new abilities to experiment with.
  • Combine Form Abilites: Customize your Forms by equipping abilities from other Forms: Mix and Match abilities in fun and unexpected ways!
  • Evolving Dungeons: As you become stronger, procedurally generated dungeons will increase in difficulty and complexity to keep you on your toes!
  • More to Come: We'll be revealing more features of the game as we get closer to launch. Stay tuned!
