Unravel a tender, emotive tale of life and love against the backdrop of a stunning and serene natural world.”
A Stunning Pixel Perfect World
Experience the emotionally stirring journey of an android created to bring back life to the dying world – changing desolate, barren wastelands to colourful and vibrant ecosystems, bursting with diverse life.
Bask in purely breath-taking, visual spectacles; from the Sun rising across a growingly vibrate landscape, the clouds gently rolling across the night sky, or the simple shape of your own reflection within the water.
With incredible detail and stunning pixel art environments, lose yourself in the serene and peaceful world as you rebuild.
Harvest the Plentiful Resources of this Lushious Landscape
The most vital resource in creating new life is natural energy – you’ll harvest energy right from the source as you gather Starflames, swirling concentrated masses of energy, as well as the DNA from the limited remaining living creatures.
Seek to understand their genetic patterns and sequence their unique biological profile to fuel further creation. The growing ecosystem attracts new life, species and colour to the dead landscape.
But, be prepared for the emotional burdens that creating life brings, as all life dies in the end.
Discover and Collect Fauna and Flora Alike
Travel across the 4 unique ecosystems and distinctive biomes – Bog, Forest, Dunes and Ruins. Each environment is capable of sustaining different forms of life, with a vibrant and extensive selection of flora and natural habitats.World for Two boasts an extensive list of creatures to recreate, with 60 organisms for you to collect through trial and error. Start with the lowly amoeba, and end with brightly coloured whales and manta rays.
Once the main storyline has been completed, enjoy access to “Chapter 0”; a special prologue mode featuring new art and music.
Discover what happened before you were created, understand the Professor’s motivations and what devastating series of events lead the world down the harrowing path of destruction.
