Indivisible is an action role-playing-platform game developed by Lab Zero Games and published by 505 games.
The story revolves around Ajna, a fearless girl with a rebellious streak. Raised by her father on the outskirts of their rural town, her life is thrown into chaos when her home is attacked, and a mysterious power awakens within her. The huge fantasy world, characters and aesthetic design are all inspired by various cultures and mythologies. Throughout Ajna’s quest, she’ll encounter many “incarnations”; people she can absorb and manifest to fight alongside her. There are many incarnations to recruit; each with their own story and personality. By uniting people from faraway lands, Ajna will learn about herself, the world she inhabits and, most importantly, how to save it.
The hand drawn art style of Indivisible is absolutely like nothing else I have played. It stands uniquely and unlike anything else I am familiar with. The graphic style is beautiful and stunning, whilst also accompanied by the sounds of nature in the background. The audio is ambient and gives you a great feel of immersion while playing. The game mechanics are great, and the controls feel crisp and responsive.
A high level of detail has been put into ensuring the background story and different levels provide an immersive experience for the player. The scene is clearly set and presented; especially when in action. Another bonus is that the save points are not far apart which means streamlined playing; when you die, you can just jump straight back in to gameplay without losing much of your progress. A much more satisfying feeling!
Whist there is no doubting that Indivisible is a great game; there were a couple of issues I had. I regret having to list any bad points about this game (because it was an enjoyable game) but I couldn’t look past how disappointing it was to have to repeat cutscenes that each play for 2 minutes with no skip function. It is frustrating as I wanted to jump straight in to the action and try again. This is not something that will worry everyone but definitely worth a mention. One other area of improvement would be the very basic map and options menu. There isn’t a way to check your controls anywhere but this may not be a concern to all players; especially experienced players who have a high level of familiarity, new players may get stuck.
With over 20 characters at launch and another 10+ to come, as part of Indivisibles free DLC, the game has a character for everybody. Indivisible provides a truly unique mix of Rayman-esque platforming with a real Final Fantasy feeling fighting mechanic that truly delivers a game unlike anything I have played before.
I didn't get as much time as I'd have liked to sink my teeth into Indivisible however, I will continue to fight may way through a beautiful world that Lab Zero Games have provided us. As I stated, there were a couple of negatives, however, these are far outweighed by the positives and do nothing to stop Indivisible being a solid game.
