DrinkBox Studios always delivers a twist on a well-worn genre to rework the formula. In Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, it was a terrific puzzle-platformer with a B-movie backdrop. And in the Guacamelee! duology, it was a Metroidvania soaked in Mexican history with luchador action. Now with Nobody Saves the World, it’s an action RPG where instead of rolling multiple characters, you play as a single character that’s comprised of multiple classes that you can switch to on-the-fly. DrinkBox Studios demonstrates how sure-footed they are in what they’ve made, because there’s such an enchanting world with delightful role-playing elements and varied gameplay you’ve gotta play.
New releases for the PlayStation Vita are few and far between these days. Especially games that take specific advantage of what the Vita can offer, in this case touch screen controls. Severed plays out much like a twisted fantasy told in a foreign and colorful land. As the protagonist Sasha, she finds herself hoping to rescue her family and do battle in the process.
