The Untold World Talks the Talk But…

…will it have cute neko girls and horse men?

Set in a magical world with humans, elves and beastkin, The Untold World promises it will be a game for the gamers. Featuring 4k support, hand painted backdrops and ARPG (Diablo, not Dragon Age) mechanics, it offers two very different stories that will change further still with each decision you make…and yeah, that all sounds like typical PR posturing to me as well.

Having said that, it is a very purdy looking game, and I do like my pretty games, even when they can be a bit lacking in narrative substance. One thing that has stood out to me, is that you can “become” an NPC after completing their personal quest line. Basically, you make yourself look like said NPC, earn all their skills and, for a change, don’t feel like a complete lemon because Joe Bloggs-McDisposable-Dude had that one, killer skill that you can’t get.

Currently doing the rounds on Steam Greenlight, The Untold World could well be everything it’s trying to sell itself as.
