On his journey to defeat a ruthless evil that is tearing reality apart, Unbound: Worlds Apart invites players to take on the role of Soli, conjuring magic portals to travel between different realities in order to learn more about the catastrophe that ravaged his world. Inside certain portals, the laws of physics and abilities of the character can change, opening up new and inventive ways to progress.

Curiosity and exploration will have an impact on the overall atmosphere as, inside certain portals, the physical properties of the character or world elements can change, offering new gameplay possibilities.

As Soli discovers more about the fate that befell this world, players will explore a stunning hand-crafted world and explore a dark fairytale that begs to be unravelled.

Summon portals to overcome vicious beasts, devious puzzles and platforming challenges in this new Metroidvania saga, Unbound: Worlds Apart is ready to step through a portal into our world – and onto our screens.
