9 Minutes of Nobody Saves the World Gameplay

Guacamelee! developer Drinkbox Games is taking on top-down dungeon crawlers with Nobody Saves The World. The action-RPG takes a page from titles like Diablo and The Legend of Zelda, but with a twist. As you work through the game's strange, twisted world, you unlock the ability to transform into a number of different characters, each with its own often-ridiculous special abilities.

Drinkbox gave GameSpot a chance to play about 45 minutes of Nobody Saves The World, in which we tried out several different transformations, and you can check out some of our gameplay in the video above. From a rat that can inflict poison on anyone it bites (and then make poisoned enemies explode) to a magician who pulls rabbits out of a hat so they can murder his enemies (along with the occasional white tiger), we got a quick sense of how you'll use different forms to give you lots of options on the battlefield.

The layout of each Nobody Saves The World dungeons is procedurally generated, so they'll change if you leave them and they'll become tougher and more complex as you gain strength. You have benefits of your own, though--in addition to a double-digit list of forms to unlock that range from traditional fantasy characters to off-the-wall options such as an egg or a horse, you'll also unlock customizations that allow you to change up each one's abilities and perks. Crafting different loadouts will allow you to handle different challenges, and you can change your perks and abilities on the fly after unlocking them so you can make adjustments even mid-dungeon.

Nobody Saves The World is set to release later in 2021 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
