Indivisible is an upcoming action role-playing game-platformer developed by Lab Zero Games and published by 505 Games.[1] The game is scheduled for release in October 2019, with a Nintendo Switch release at a later date.[2]

Gameplay[edit]

Indivisible will feature platform-style Action RPG exploration and combat mechanics inspired by Valkyrie Profile.[3]

Plot[edit]

The game follows the story of Ajna (voiced by Tania Gunadi), a girl who embarks on a global journey to discover the truth behind her mysterious powers.[4] During her quest, she is joined by a variety of unique heroes, gaining new abilities to traverse different environments and defeat enemies encountered along the way.[4]

Development[edit]

Indivisible was announced by Lab Zero Games during their Skullgirls panel at the Anime Expo on July 2, 2015.[3] According to the developer, the game will include a storyline influenced by southeast Asian mythology and other cultures.[4] It will also feature 2D hand-drawn animation by Lab Zero Games' artists.[5] Composer Hiroki Kikuta, best known for his work on Secret of Mana, scored the game's soundtrack.[3] The game features animation by Japanese anime studio Studio Trigger and Titmouse with the opening animation directed by Yoh Yoshinari of Little Witch Academia. [6]

Lab Zero Games launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo on October 5, 2015, with a goal of US$1,500,000.[7] A playable prototype of the game was released in tandem with the launch.[7] If Lab Zero Games met or exceeded their goal, publisher 505 Games would contribute their remaining development budget.[8] The campaign's initial 40-day contribution period faced relatively sluggish fundraising, earning approximately $764,000 by November 8, 2015.[9] However, on November 13, 2015, the campaign was extended for an additional 20 days after the game received roughly US$963,000 in pledges, above Indiegogo's required 60% threshold.[9][10] Following the extension, the goal was eventually reached on December 2, 2015.[11] The game will be released on October 8, 2019.[12]
