Ever since What Lies in the Multiverse was announced, it is a question we have wanted answering. And now the wait is over, we finally have our answers. Find out today What Lies in the Multiverse; available on Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Nintendo Switch.
What Lies in the Multiverse sounds a lot like what a videogame would be in William Shakespeare himself wrote it. Describing itself as a dramatic comedy, it is filled with cartoonish hijinks while presenting themes of death, envy and obsession. You are “The Kid”, who is transported to the Multiverse for reasons unknown. Here, he meets Everett; an interesting character with vast knowledge of the multiverse. He also likes a good hat.
Together they must avoid a group known as ZENITH who are trying to protect the secrets of the Multiverse and what it holds within.
What Lies in the Multiverse uses the concept of overlapping realities in its gameplay too. This 2D adventure will see you phasing between universes to traverse all that is around you. If an obstacle appears in your way in one universe, flip to another where it will have magically disappeared. Or if a jump is too far in one reality, quickly switch to another for a much more manageable gap.
A word of caution though: There is a note at the start of What Lies in the Multiverse for themes including violence, grief and death. There is also a seizure warning for certain sections of gameplay.
Priced at £12.49, What Lies in the Multiverse is available now on the Xbox Store. We will have a review coming very soon for this exciting looking title. Stay tuned. For now, hit us up in the comments about what you think lies in the Multiverse.
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. Things inevitably go batshit crazy very fast in the Multiverse when you discover the ability to travel between parallel worlds.
