    Indivisible is a gorgeous game that beautifully blends genres to create an engaging, exciting experience. This is a pleasantly refreshing take on a much reproduced gaming formula.

    This is one of the best indie games to come out this year. Lab Zero has already shown that they know how to make an amazing fighting game and now they have shown they know how to make an amazing platformer and RPG as well.

    Indivisible takes the best of RPGs and fighting games and mixes them with a world full of secrets to find and a healthy dose of platforming goodness. While it doesn’t reach its full potential in some areas, it’s still a great time throughout.

    One of the best movie adaptations of all time and an impressively original strategy game that manages to rival even the best action titles in terms of tension and adrenaline rush.

    Indivisible manages to be something fresh and new, without ever getting too outside of the box. The mechanics feel familiar, as they are an exceptional blend of of metroidvania style exploration with RPG character progression. The combat harkens back to traditional RPG gameplay, but introduces new systems that really add a fun sense of strategy. Indivisible also hosts one of the most culturally and ethnically diverse rosters of playable characters I've ever seen.

    Indivisible is extraordinary. It’s a very focused game that cuts out a lot of the fluff in RPGs. There’s no skill trees, no crafting, no mundane ‘kill 10 of this monster’ type of stuff, no weapon or armor system, and not even money to spend things on. There’s one basic currency you collect to upgrade your attack or defense. I think this works in Indivisible’s favor in an era filled with games full of massive checklists, endless progress bars, and so forth. Lab Zero has an admirable vision of where it wanted to take Indivisible; it may be a streamlined experience, but it’s a damn good one.

    Indivisible manages to merge 2D platforming, thrilling combat, and a thought-provoking story resulting in one of the most wildly creative RPGs of the year.

    A beautiful experiment with brilliant mechanics and lovable characters, that falls short of exellence due to some naivety in the level design and the general progression.

    Indivisible is a colorful and dynamicgame, full of nice and well done ideas; its mechanics are not revolutionary, but it can entertain for hours, without ever disappointing fans of the genre and those are waiting for its epublication for years.

    Indivisible is a good surprise. Mixing RPG elements with platforming, the game does everything well, even if it can be too demanding at times.

    Indivisible was incredibly close to being the best indie RPG I've ever played. The first half of the game is exciting, engaging and does a fantastic job of meshing together fighting games, Metroidvanias, platformers and RPGs. Unfortunately, the second half only manages to nail the Metroidvania and platformer aspects. The strong presentation and likeable characters help carry it through the weaker second half, and it's still absolutely worth a shot if you're looking for a stylish RPG. Maybe some patches and rebalancing can help the weaker second half, but for the moment, Indivisible starts off strong and finishes weak.

    Although it has an underwhelming story and some pacing issues, Indivisible is a great game filled with memorable characters, gorgeous visuals, entertaining combat, and fun dialogue.

    Indivisible is a fresh RPG hybrid with a lot of heart and new ideas. Its original combat is bolstered by a frankly brilliant variety of characters, and the high-quality animation welcomes you into its world. It’s not without its lulls and frustrating moments, but Lab Zero have a crowdfunded success on their hands here.

    Indivisible's inventive battle system brings the thrill of a fighting game to a JRPG-like party system but its platforming sections aren't as magical.

    With planned updates and content already being worked on, it probably won't be long before Indivisible crosses over into greatness.

    It stands out as an RPG that's doing something genuinely different, and it brings joy to its clever platforming with the tune of an infectious soundtrack. For all its faults, Indivisible has its heart in the right place.

    Indivisible initially impresses with a tight package that visually stuns but after hours of repetition and ease, I’d rather take some time apart.

  1. Indivisible may lack the number-crunching aspects of Disgaea, but it embodies the same sense of earnest cheer. It won’t change your life, but it’s a pleasant romp, extremely pretty, and clearly made with a lot of love. All good stuff.

    terrible keyboard controls. terrible menu for rebinding, ONLY PAD PROMPTS INSTEAD OF KEYS ARE SHOWN and you don't overwrite the keys whenterrible keyboard controls. terrible menu for rebinding, ONLY PAD PROMPTS INSTEAD OF KEYS ARE SHOWN and you don't overwrite the keys when rebinding so it makes some keys do two things at once. due to this and only gampad prompts the controls are incredibly confusing. this is a terrible job, an insult to pc players and incredible incompetence.

    also the movies and backgrounds are fantastic, but the characters look like they're drawn and animated with adobe flash... terrible, cheap style. awful.

    avoid this game.

    very very fun

    exploration is a blast, the overworld abilities all feel crazy powerful and make for some very unique puzzle-like platforming. definitely the high part of the game

    combat is fun, very customizable thanks to the multiple characters you take control of. you have plenty of ways to avoid enemies and engage with them in the overworld, which helps with the issue of a lack of a 'flee from battle' button.

    checkpoints are frequent, and the save system is smartly implemented, allowing you to reload almost any save made on the same slot

    very fun writing and story. entertaining characters who vibe off of each other nicely, plus a couple very fitting twists and turns. wordy but lighthearted, with the occasional pinch of seriousness in particular when it comes to Ajna's character arc.

    stunning animations full of life, lovingly designed characters, and a slappin' soundtrack. not perfect - there's some glitches here and there and a few other minor issues - but a great game that honestly just keeps getting better the more you play it
