Drinkbox Studios (Guacamelee!, Severed) revealed their upcoming game recently as part of of the first-ever ID@Xbox Twitch Gaming Showcase: Nobody Saves the World, a new twist on action RPGs, coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, the PC Windows Store and Steam later this year. The title will also be made available on launch day to Game Pass for PC & Console subscribers.
Game details as shared on Steam:
As Nobody (yes, you play as a character named Nobody), you find a powerful magic wand that allows you to swap into different Forms to clear dungeons, solve puzzles, and complete quests (we did tell you it was an RPG). Nobody Saves the World also features an original soundtrack by acclaimed Sword and Sworcery composer Jim Guthrie.
Thank you so much for the love towards Nobody Saves the World!🙏
It's been wild to finally be able to talk about this neat thing we've been working on!

“Nobody Saves the World is full of everything we love about Action-RPGs, and none of the stuff we hate – Gobs of forms and abilities, dozens of dungeons, hundreds of quests, tons of character customization – and no grinding! It’s packed with the Drinkbox charm you know and love… OH and also, you can play as a Horse!”

About Nobody Saves The World
Nobody Saves The World (NSTW) is a new twist on Action RPGs, in which you play many different character classes (aka “Forms”), each with its own unique gameplay mechanics.
Complete Quests to discover and then swap between 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!
- 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 ABILITIES: 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!
