What Lies in the Multiverse is a story-driven, 2D adventure that one could call a dramatic comedy. Filled to the brim with hilarious, cartoonish hijinks, the narrative also presents the player with mature and deep themes like death, envy, and obsession.
When a gifted boy (known only as The Kid) is zapped into a totally new universe, he encounters Everett – a sarcastic, eccentric, and mysterious scientist with the power to shift dimensions. Bonded with a dangerous mutual curiosity for parallel worlds, they embark on an investigation into the unknown. Together they venture off to a strange island where they will find key answers about Everett’s past and the universe, all while being hunted by old yet dubious acquaintances who are looking to capture them and put a stop to their dimension shifting shenanigans.
