Developed by Tiny Roar, XEL is a vibrant sci-fi “Zelda-like” that will head to PC and consoles in 2022. In the game, players will explore a lush, vibrant world filled with gorgeous — and occasionally deadly — biomes.
Solve intricate puzzles, explore mysterious dungeons, and battle merciless robots and exotic wildlife. Inspired by titles like the Zelda series, XEL will take players through an epic and heartwarming story. This title is filled with fantastical settings and memorable characters set to an emotionally powerful soundtrack from composer Gidon Wolff.
What is XEL?
XEL follows an amnesiac protagonist named Reid, who finds herself shipwrecked on an enigmatic world. Players will join Reid as she sets out to get to the bottom of the mystery behind this bizarre land. It’s filled with secrets, puzzles, and a not-so-stable sense of time. Players can explore a beautiful overworld dotted with challenging dungeons in a classic, top-down, 3D action-adventure format in a rich, vivid palette.
During her quest, Reid will meet charming, enduring characters, engage in thrilling combat, and of course, find and upgrade a whole bevvy of nifty weapons, items, gadgets, and moves. Some of which may help her jump through space and time.
XEL will be featured during the “Assemble: Spotlight On” which will kick off today, at 12.30 BST/13.30 CEST on the RocketBeans Twitch channel.
