XEL is a 3D action-adventure game with RPG elements and top-down view. According to the plot, the main character’s ship, Reid, crashes in a mysterious world called XEL. Soon the girl finds out that the place where she landed has fallen into a temporary anomaly and is experiencing endless disasters. She must restore her memory, unravel the mysteries of XEL’s past, and break the vicious circle.

In the trailer, the heroine moves through time and space to solve puzzles, communicate with characters, explore colorful aboveground locations and gloomy laboratories, search for secrets, and fight enemies.

As the authors promise, Reed will be able to use various attacks and their combinations in fights, parries and dodges. In addition, they allow you to upgrade weapons, shields and gadgets and unlock new skills that allow you to do this “Change the Rules of Space and Time”, penetrate previously inaccessible places and defeat particularly strong enemies. The developers note that they were inspired by The Legend of Zelda series.

XEL was announced in August last year at the Gamescom trade fair. The game will be released in summer 2022 on PC (steam, GOG) and Nintendo Switch and later on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S.

Tiny Roar was founded in Hamburg in 2015. Now the team is also working on a free multiplayer arcade game Bomb Bots Arena in the spirit of the classic Bomberman. The game has been in Steam Early Access since June 2020 and has received 592 reviews so far, giving it an 85% rating. The team also helped CrazyBunch create the 2018 Adventures Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry.

German Assemble Entertainment is known as the publisher of the Leisure Suit Larry game series and organizer of the annual GermanDevDays conference. This year, the company released a post-apocalyptic city-builder simulator End Zone – A world apart by Gentlymad Studios (currently the top seller in the publisher’s projects directory on Steam), an action-platformer Orbital Sphere by SmokeStab and Indian Adventure Itorah from Grimbart Tales.
