In Wordless you’ll be tasked with one thing – discovering your true purpose.
A mysterious 2D adventure platformer that just so happens to be the debut title from the Noname Studios team, Worldless will be coming to Xbox and PC in 2023, giving players the chance to explore intricate areas and to uncover hidden secrets, all whilst taking in turn-based combat.
Playing as a metroidvania experience, Noname are being helped along by those at Thunderful (Lonely Mountains: Downhill) and Coatsink (Phogs!) as they embark on a new quest with a highly stylised, turn-based, 2D adventure platformer.
Wordless has been revealed at IGN’s Awesome Indies showcase and focuses on a journey for players to grow and discover their true purpose while they attune to a newborn existence based on polarities.
It’s set in a nascent existence of polar opposite realities aligned with a common spark. Players will venture into an abstract setting full of entities with opposing goals. One half is fixated on the virtue of their nature, the other is seeking to exchange it for their demise. Polarities attract, resulting in neverending conflict, and the result is the traumatic process of Absorption which sees their very natures exchange. Further still, instability in the process can cause mutations that allure transcendence.
In Worldless, you’ll push forward, learn the nuances of an optimized combat system by mastering your timing and refining your strategies. Absorb enemies to learn new abilities in an ever-expanding skill tree to unlock new ways to explore and add depth to combat encounters. You’ll explore intricate areas filled with secrets, using finesse and fluid action to uncover them, and engage ferocious beings in fast-paced, turn-based action combat.
Bask in an atmospheric, unforgettable setting that inspires and engages, and connect to the deeper meanings of Worldless with a haunting yet beautiful score. Define the undefined and uncover unimaginable possibilities with unique turn-based combat that focuses on action where style and mastery will be heavily rewarded. Jump, dash and even run on water as you navigate through an abstract existence in pursuit of your true purpose.
