Its protagonist will be involved in a surreal story after being abandoned by his wife and handling his misfortune with alcohol, drugs and lust.
The player will be able to discover the sinister land of NetherWorld; to explore its darkest corners, get along with weird NPC’s, use flames and handguns to battle horrific bosses or just get drunk in a bar.
From the beginning, the main purpose of NetherWorld developers was to create something different, an unusual story with deeply eccentric characters and a pile of apparently- ridiculous situations. This adventure will have multiple references to great videogames franchises such as Dark Souls, among others. However, some of them will be only visible for sharp players.
In NetherWorld, most of the fights will be against final bosses, focusing on the story progression, dialogues and relationships between the different characters.
Each final boss will have unique mechanics, ensuring epic and intense battles. To defeat them and help our black squid-like hero to get over his depression, we’ll have all kinds of weapons. However, sometimes we’ll have to use nearby objects or just flee as fast as possible. In broad strokes, NetherWorld’s dynamics can remind us of Shadow of the Colossus.
