What Lies in the Multiverse is a story-driven 2D adventure that one could call a dramatic comedy. Filled to the brim with hilarious, cartoonish hijinks, the narrative also presents the player with mature and deep themes like death, envy, and obsession. Are you ready for this bombastic puzzle platformer? Developed by Studio Voyager SpA. and IguanaBee SpA and published by Untold Tales.
Things inevitably go totally crazy very fast in the Multiverse when you discover the ability to travel between parallel worlds. These worlds are alternate versions of each level and differ in aesthetic, theme, and physicality. Switching between them allows you to solve logical and spatial challenges and to progress the story.
Would you like to change the game world on the fly? Now you can! Can’t reach a ledge? Bam! Switch worlds mid-air. Afraid of sliding around in an icy environment? Alternate to another universe for firmer ground! Just be careful when messing with gravity…
Embark on a journey across a variety of gorgeous pixel-art worlds, each offering something unique. Explore temples, towns, harbours, the wilderness and more as you race to unlock the secrets of the Multiverse.
Meet a bunch of quirky but compelling characters such as Everett, your eventual genius companion. Picture a sarcastic, eccentric Albert Einstein. Then there’s EZ, a mysterious figure everyone fondly remembers but can’t describe. Or ZENITH, a group of enigmatic and shadowy figures always breathing down your neck.
While staying true to its light-hearted nature, the story’s poignancy builds as you progress. A rollercoaster of laughter, joy, and sorrow awaits.
