Publisher Untold Games and developers Studio Voyager and IguanaBee have announced What Lies in the Multiverse, a “dramatic” comedy set within a universe with shifting dimensions.
The story-driven 2D adventure tells the story of a boy known as The Kid, who somehow ends up in a new universe and comes across a scientist named Everett, who can shift dimensions. The curious minds team up to investigate the “dimension shifting shenanigans,” and along the way, find the truth about Everett’s past.
What Lies in the Multiverse will release sometime in 2022 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It’ll be playable on current-gen consoles via backwards compatibility. A demo is currently available on Steam.
Key features include:
- Seamless Transformations – Would you like to change the game world on the fly? Now you can! Can’t reach a ledge? Bam! Switch worlds mid-air. Afraid of sliding around an icy environment? Alternate to another universe for firmer ground! Just be careful when messing with gravity…
- Diverse Worlds – Embark on a journey across a variety of gorgeous pixel-art worlds, each offering something unique. Explore temples, towns, harbors, the wilderness and more as you race to unlock the secrets of the Multiverse.
- Colorful Cast of Characters – Meet a bunch of quirky but compelling characters such as Everett, your eventual genius companion. Picture a sarcastic, eccentric Albert Einstein. Then there’s EZ, a mysterious figure everyone fondly remembers but can’t describe. And of course, ZENITH, a group of enigmatic and shadowy figures always breathing down your neck.
- A Deeper Narrative – While staying true to its light-hearted nature, the story’s poignancy builds as you progress. A rollercoaster of laughter, joy, and sorrow awaits.
