Everhood Breaks Reality This March on PC and Switch

Open the Door Into Madness

 

Everhood | Goblin

I love the unexpected in video games. Weird mishmashes of genres, throwbacks with new tricks, all that jazz. Which is why Everhood looks so very promising to me. Developed by Foreign Gnomes, it’s an RPG adventure that looks to incorporate rhythm elements. It kind of reminds me of Undertale, but only in that it’s a unique take on a classic genre.

Everhood | BoardGame

As to what Everhood is actually about, this PR blast explains it pretty darned well:

Sign the contract, sell your soul, and step into a mystical realm between the known planes of existence called Everhood. Here awakens the wooden doll Red, rising from a deep slumber to find a thief has stolen his arm. Red sets out in search of his missing limb and unknowingly begins to pull at a thread that may unravel reality as the world knows it.

Wander through the doors of existence on Red’s quest and cross paths with the bizarre beings that call this place home. Join these charming characters as they try to pass the time and whittle away eternity by racing go-karts, overcoming obstacle courses, and playing board games. But be prepared to face the music at a moment’s notice, as not every immortal is the kindly sort.

Square off against a banjo-loving frog, sentient ATM, nearly nude knight, and a myriad of other odd opponents in unique dance battles. Move and groove to dodge oncoming fire. Perform evasive maneuvers to outlast Red’s rivals while jamming out to bespoke boss fight themes that range from twangy chiptunes to heavy industrial beats and span everything in between.

Bring world-altering revelations to light on and off the dance floor as Red’s journey tugs at reality’s seams. Choose between a range of five difficulty options to enjoy everything from a narrative-focused experience to blistering challenges. Then return to the realm in New Game Plus to discover additional secrets or test those skills in an ultra-hard unlockable mode.
