Saviorless is a stylish dark fantasy action-platformer with beautiful hand-drawn art and animation.

Boasting beautiful hand-drawn artwork, the world of Saviorless invites players to unravel the mystery of the Smiling Islands while fighting nightmarish monsters and solving puzzles. Following the journey of Antar, The Savior, and Nento, players will piece together a broken narrative through a unique storytelling approach while exploring the atmospheric world of Saviorless.

Help the fragile, reckless child to unveil the secrets of the islands or embody a violent masked avatar born to protect the children against hordes of bizarre enemies and bosses that haunt the land of the Saviors.

Endure fast-paced ruthless combats against everything that stands between you and your escape from the Smiling Islands.

Publisher Dear Villagers and Cuban indie game developer Empty Head Games are excited to announce the release date for Saviorless, launching for PC, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 5 on April 2, 2024.

Despite initial success and support, the team faced setbacks due to political tensions, budget constraints, game name trademark conflict, and the loss of a key member. However, with the help of a publisher and the dedication of the team, they persevered through technical difficulties and delays to release a visually stunning game that exceeded their expectations.

"We’ve poured every ounce of effort we’ve had in this game over the eight or so years and believe we have something truly special with Saviorless. With the amazing help and dedication from the rest of Empty Head Games and Dear Villagers, we’re finally at the most exciting part of this crazy but amazing journey. We hope fans will enjoy playing the story of the three protagonists as much as we enjoyed creating it!" – said Josuhe H. Pagliery, Game Designer at Empty Head Games.
