XEL is a 3D action-adventure game set in a sci-fi fantasy world, where your character, Reid, is shipwrecked in the strange world of XEL. Reid has no recollection of her former life, so it's up to the player to uncover her past and reveal the secrets of XEL and its connection to Reid. 

The game features sword and shield action and upgrade mechanics, with a balance of exploration, puzzle-solving, and dungeon crawling. Reid will meet enemies and allies as she makes her way through the world and engages in charming dialogue that lets her peak into the vast amounts of strong storytelling that's been created for the game, revealing what caused the world of XEL to become what it is now.  

The Gameplay features the standard Souls-like trifecta of attacking dodging and parrying, but with the added benefit of gadgets to give the game a unique flair. Reid also uses unique abilities to bend the rules of space and time to traverse prior inaccessible areas or encounter foes in a weakened state.
