Over the weekend, Ysbyrd Games revealed a new game on the way for Q1 2021 as they presented No Place For Bravery. This game has apparently been in development since 2016 with Glitch Factory and has gone through a couple different incarnations until now. The game is now a top-down action-RPG that explores the lengths a parent would go to find their child in a war-torn world. Which, we might add, looking at the screenshots and the trailer below, is one bloody world. You know it's going to be fun when the land you're walking around on is literally built out of titans that were slain. The game is going to be released next year on Switch for PC and Nintendo Switch, but for now, enjoy reading about it and checking out the trailer.
An old soldier dedicated to the advancement of his people, Thorn reassesses his priorities and prepares to lay down his sword, until discovering his long-lost daughter Leaf still lives.In a bid to expunge the nightmares which plague him, Thorn sets out with his disabled foster son Phid to find Leaf, and endures a painful quest that forces him to confront the decisions made in his ambitious past. No Place For Bravery places equal emphasis on narrative and action, with fast-paced movement paired with swift strikes and tactical parries during combat encounters. Progression is not about leveling up and increasing stat numbers, but earning upgrades discovered from significant encounters and uncovering the secrets laying in wait within the beautiful world of Dewr. No Place For Bravery's art conveys the goals of its gameplay by featuring an incredibly detailed pixel world, a stirring soundtrack and hand-painted textures. Characters feature fluid animation, all created in a style drawing inspiration from medieval, high fantasy and apocalyptic fiction.
