A puzzle-platformer that appears traditional at first glance, but each world is split into "multiverses", demanding plenty of thought to progress to the next screen. But be warned: beneath its cutesy pixel art exterior lie themes such as death, mourning, and even obsession. It’s all sensitively portrayed, but it’s definitely a game for adults who aren’t down in the dumps! We loved it!

What Lies in the Multiverse is simultaneously a platform game, a puzzler, and a narrative game. You play as “the Kid”, a clever little man who created a computer simulation that broke reality. Wandering between different universes, the Kid meets Everett, a charismatic, one-of-a-kind genius who thinks that there is no such thing as reality. Together, you'll set off on an adventure through the multiverse, on a quest to fix your own reality.

It sounds complicated, but it's all explained very clearly for anyone who's a fan of Marvel.

One thing is for sure, though: with its pixel art graphics and the themes it touches on, this game isn't one for the kids. There's death and drama and black humour that's not particularly politically correct, but there are also some emotional moments that will leave you troubled or moved.

The plot is great and you'll soon see that the multiverses and Everett are a lot more complex than you thought in the beginning.

We loved the variety of levels. The base mechanic consists of moving from one universe to the next, and each one introduces a new gameplay mechanic. In one part of the game, the alternative dimension lets you reverse gravity, while another is all frozen and slippery, etc.

We liked the logic of the puzzles that are never really difficult (apart from in the last two levels). In general, you just need to switch dimensions, move a block, and then head back to the first dimension where you can now make progress.

Our tip to help you on your way? There are souvenirs to find in each level that unlock an alternative ending. To find them, you'll need to dig into every nook and cranny in each screen, play around with the different universes, and talk to everyone you meet as much as possible. It adds a nice RPG touch to this great game!

It's also important to note that when you start the game, it does feature a warning that it touches on some mature themes like death, mourning, depression, and violence, and may affect your mental health. So take care out there!
