Reviewer's Note: Nobody Saves the World takes about 15 to 20 hours to finish

Nobody Saves the World was released early in 2022 on January 18th on Xbox platforms and PC to critical acclaim, making it one of 2022’s first stand-out titles and Drinkbox’s most successful Steam launch to date. 

"It’s been great to see the game being received so positively by our existing fans as well as new players," said Graham Smith, Producer on Nobody Saves the World and Co-Founder of Drinkbox Studios. "We've been around for 14 years now, and Nobody Saves the World has quickly become one of our most successful games. Whenever we try making something completely new it feels like a big gamble, so we’re really happy that the game has found an audience, and hope that even more people will be able to enjoy it now that it's arriving on PlayStation and Switch. Who knows, perhaps we'll have more Nobody Saves the World ideas and forms to explore in the future!"
