London, Nov 14: In anticipation of the upcoming release of the atmospheric 2D adventure game, Worldless, developed by Thunderful, Coatsink, and Noname Studios, the creative minds behind the project have unveiled an insightful video shedding light on the game’s intricate mechanics.
Scheduled for launch on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch on Nov 21, the game seamlessly blends turn-based and real-time combat, drawing inspiration from acclaimed titles such as Devil May Cry and Octopath Traveler.
In this second video installment, Joel Roset, Creative and Animation Director, takes viewers on a journey through the game’s combat dynamics, delving into the incorporation of key elements from Devil May Cry and Octopath Traveler.
A pivotal aspect highlighted is the “Absorption Tank,” a strategic mechanic that accumulates when players inflict damage on enemies and depletes when they take hits.
Roset elaborates on the calculated risk and reward decisions players must make as they choose between gradually filling the Absorption Tank to reveal attack inputs or opting for a quicker, more unpredictable approach.
Worldless mirrors the ‘Style Meter’ concept from Devil May Cry in its approach to absorption damage, creating a dynamic experience for players.
