October plays host to a slew of big game releases such as Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. But one other game that came out this month that has seen some visibility over the last few months, that we think people should check out, is Indivisible. From the creators of Skullgirls, Lab Zero Games, Indivisible is an action role-playing platform game that features a world and story inspired by Southeast and South Asian mythology and culture.
The game began development through a successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo back in 2015 that reached a final funding total of $2.2 Million with a goal of only $1.5 Million. It was finally released earlier this week on October 8, 2019, for several platforms. Since then, the game has received mostly positive feedback and we want more people to check it out. So we’ve listed 5 reasons why you should check out Lab Zero Games’ Indivisible.
Animation by Studio Trigger
One of the reasons Indivisible suddenly appeared on people’s timelines is the beautifully-made animated trailer by Studio Trigger, the folks behind anime such as Kill la Kill and Darling in the Franxx. Studio Trigger and Titmouse worked on the animated cutscenes in the game while the opening animation was directed by Yoh Yoshinari, the director of Studio Trigger anime Little Witch Academia.
Soundtrack by Secret Of Mana Composer Hiroki Kikuta
Many gamers who grew up in the early ’90s remember the amazing masterpiece that was the soundtrack of Secret of Mana, considered by many as one of the best video game soundtracks in history. And its composer, Hiroki Kikuta, has brought his talents to Indivisible. Kikuta scored the game’s soundtrack, which features a mix of relaxing tunes and high-octane pieces that closely follow and complement’s Ajna’s journey and help build the game’s epic world and story.
Indivisible not only combines 2D visuals with 3D backgrounds and effects but also employs several art styles almost seamlessly. The combined visual styles create an experience that’s impressive and awe-inspiring and the hand-drawn art and animation gives the game a charming flair and authenticity that you seldom see in many games these days.
It Combines Metroidvania Platforming and Valkyrie Profile-Inspired Combat
As previously mentioned, Indivisible combines multiple gameplay styles into a single experience. Part of it is a Metroidvania-style action platformer while the other is a turn-based JRPG inspired by Valkyrie Profile. While the two elements seldomly mesh into a single experience, both are done excellently and show Lab Zero Games’ prowess in creating engaging gameplay that stays enjoyable all throughout.

There’s a Dog and You Can Pet It
Lastly, one of Ajna’s companions include a giant blue dog named Lanshi inspired by the Tibetan Mastiff. Lanshi, whose name means “blue lion” when written in traditional chinese, not only fights with you but players can also pet the dog to either generate Iddhi, the meter that powers special attacks, but also charge up Lanchi’s own special attack.
