DON'T NOD Changes Direction with Jusant, an Action-Puzzle Climber

During yesterday’s Xbox Games Showcase, DON’T NOD introduced Jusant, an action-puzzle climbing game coming in 2023. The game marks something of a departure for the studio that is most famously known for its narrative adventure game. Fans need not worry, however, as the game is said to come along with a “meditative journey” as the titular character ascends to soaring heights.

Developers offered viewers a peek into the game with a trailer that showcases gorgeous scenery, gameplay, and features they can expect.

Players can try out the game for themselves too. A new Steam demo has arrived that lets players try out a vertical slice of the game ahead of its fall release.

Features include

  • Experience climbing like never before. Master your climbing tools and watch your stamina meter to successfully navigate this mysterious and changing tower. As you go higher and hone your skills, you’ll have to figure out how best to use the tools at your disposal to get to where you want to go. Explore alternative paths to find clues about what happened here.
  • Relax and bask in nature. Play at your own pace. As you climb, you’ll come across breathtaking biomes full of flora and fauna, accompanied by a peaceful and atmospheric soundtrack. Brace yourself on arid, windy slopes, seek refuge in tunnels lit only by bioluminescence, and more.
  • Journey with a companion made of water. Meet the mysterious Ballast. This creature will help guide you throughout your journey by waking nature along your path and helping to reveal clues that will help you piece together the tower’s past and reach the top.
