'No Place for Bravery' Delayed On Nintendo Switch And PC Until Q3 2022

No Place For Bravery is a top-down action-RPG that explores the lengths a parent would go to find their child in a war-torn world.

After a lifetime of battle and misery, Thorn prepares to lay down his sword for good—until receiving a new lead on his missing daughter Leaf. Venture forth, berserker, into an unforgiving, breathtaking world where a single misstep could cut Thorn’s story short. Dash around danger with split-second timing or adjust difficulty settings to enjoy the tale and save the challenge for another day. No matter the path Thorn walks, discover a stirring, somber soundtrack and detailed pixel art evoking an age of giants and myth.

No Place For Bravery places equal emphasis on narrative and action, with fast-paced movement paired with swift strikes and tactical parries during combat encounters. Progression is not about leveling up and increasing stat numbers, but earning upgrades discovered from significant encounters and uncovering the secrets laying in wait within the beautiful world of Dewr.

No Place For Bravery’s art conveys the goals of its gameplay by featuring an incredibly detailed pixel world, a stirring soundtrack and hand-painted textures. Characters feature fluid animation, all created in a style drawing inspiration from medieval, high fantasy and apocalyptic fiction.

Originally conceived of as a roguelike in 2016, Glitch Factory overhauled No Place For Bravery in the years since to deliver an experience that more closely follows their vision and inspirations, with a narrative-driven campaign influenced by the difficult experiences of its creators. 

Initially planned for Q1 2021, then delayed until Q4 2021No Place for Bravery will now benefit from additional care and craftsmanship to fully realize the developer’s vision of a timeless dark fable about the thin line between heroism and obsession.

Key Features:

  • Brave the land of Dewr, a devastated high-fantasy world full of bandits, murderers, and fearsome bosses.
  • Master demanding combat with well-timed slashes, blocks, and parries. Dewr won’t give you an inch
  • Take up the sword, shield, and guilt of Thorn, an ex-soldier burdened by sin on a quest to save his family.
  • Search for Leaf, Thorn’s long-lost daughter, and uncover the truth of her disappearance.

No Place For Bravery releases for Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) in Q3 2022 at $19.99.
