Play OverviewPlay Overview

Noita (2020) is platform adventure game in a world where each and every pixel is physically simulated. This means that the tiny elements that make up the landscape and characters have their own properties that: melt, burn, evaporate, explode, flow, float, support, stick and so on. You explore this world by taking advantage of these properties, combined with the spells you can learn.

In a similar fashion to Terraria’s mine-able underground caverns, Noita invites you to delve deep into the ground. It also has coal mines, freezing wastelands and red hot deserts all hiding unknown mysteries. Here though, the idea is not to survive forever and build a home, but to plunge deep into the world until you die, and then start again with what you’ve learnt.

You can craft your own spells by combining the different magical elements you learn. These may focus on crushing your enemies or simply manipulate the world to do it for you. You can see what anything is made of my hovering the cursor over it. In the same way, your character will be affected by the pixels you touch, getting wet, cold or on fire.
