In What is hidden in the Multiverse, you play as a child of unknown name who meets Everett, an eccentric and sarcastic scientist from another world with the ability to jump between dimensions. You will go on a journey with him, discovering distorted realities along the way, escaping colorful characters on their mission to capture you, all the while discovering Everett’s mysterious past and motives. This is a journey filled with absurdity and black humor, existential questions and interesting characters from all over the world.
At its core, it’s a pixel puzzle/platform game where you switch between different universes (which act like different versions of the level you’re on) to solve puzzles and progress through the story. You can see all kinds of universes! Frozen, where the ice makes your steps slippery and allows you to jump incredibly long distances. Poisoned, in which you can only stay for a short time without running out of breath. Or inverted, where everything is upside down, even gravity! They all differ in aesthetics, theme, mechanics, storytelling, and even music! In this little adventure you have to explore the whole multiverse. The creation of the world is also an important factor in the story, though not essential for the more curious players. Why are these universes like this? What happened to all these people? And why is the warrior grandmother fighting a horde of yellow-eyed zombies? If you are careful during your adventure, you may come across some abandoned items from people from all over the world that you can collect to delve deeper into the story or just satisfy your inner collector spirit.
It’s a fun little adventure full of surprises, and we’re incredibly excited (and nervous!) to bring it to you all on Xbox today! It’s been a hard couple of years of work and a lot of incredible people have gone out of their way to make this story as special as it is today, and so we hope you enjoy it as much as we did when it was made <3
Thanks for reading!
