There are many high fantasy RPG titles, but also quite a few humorous versions, usually coming from indie developers. Swords & Souls: Neverseen is one such game, taking place on an island where the protagonist is shipwrecked and soon becomes entangled in a fight between a witch and some strange townsfolk, resulting in a light-hearted storyline with wacky characters. In order to stop the villainess, one has to follow the path of training and fighting to level up and do it again and again.
What sounds like boring grinding is made more fun and addictive by evolving training minigames that increase the character’s stats. By upgrading one’s home and training grounds, there’s also a strategy element added to the mix of real-time and turn-based combat against all sorts of enemies when facing the outside world. Variety is key again like in all these kinds of RPG titles, as one can choose six types of weapons, passive skills, and rings to boost certain attributes. Taming pets and hiring mercenaries helps, too. But there’s even more to do, as one can go shopping, fishing, and invest in a museum, plus much more, turning the game more into a life simulation.
Based on the original Swords & Souls browser game released in 2015, Swords & Souls: Neverseen is now a stand-alone single-player RPG that is available on PC with a 10% launch discount that will last until July 29th, 5pm UTC.
