Starts out basic, but ratchets way up.
Lab Zero, the developer of the poplar and stylish 'Skull Girls' fighting game, has teamed up with 505 Games to create an RPG/platformer hybrid prototype that is absolutely worth playing. In the 'Indivisible' prototype, players start out with Ajna, a combative female lead. When roaming around metroidvanie style, Anja enters battles in an action RPG way, with a classic side by side look, but with a frenetic combat that picks as Anja picks up party members.
Here's Anja after obtaining the axe, which is useful for both attacking and for reaching new areas.
In combat, each party member can be controlled individually, but it all happens fast. The L1 group block becomes very important when fighting tough enemies.
Get the free PC prototype here. It starts slow, so be sure to get a couple of party members before making a judgment. Also be sure that you fight plenty of enemies and get Razmi, the fourth party member, to where she can attack three times (level three meter) and learn how to use her heal ability before fighting the boss seen below:
The purpose of this free prototype is to show where this project is heading (some place special it seems so far). Lab Zero and 505 Games have launched an Indiegogo to get the game funded. (See here.)
