If you've spent any time on the internet, you've likely come across a Two Things t-shirt; a shirt that exists only to make two surface-level geek references at the same time, as opposed to the one reference you might get from a Star Wars graphic tee at Target. Often, the franchises being smushed together in these crossovers have no thematic connection beyond the base fact of their existence, like this Pokémon Go/Stranger Things shirt.
But sometimes the Two Things alchemy produces something that doesn't completely suck, like this one that combines Breaking Bad with Game of Thrones. Yeah, it's two popular things that you recognize, but both prestige shows are about power struggles and unstable kingdoms. The kingdom in Breaking Bad may not be quite as literal, but it's not as aggressively nonsensical as this Batman/Nike shirt.
At first blush, Indivisible (the forthcoming Indiegogo'd game from Skullgirls developer Lab Zero Games) looked like a rare Two Things game. Aesthetically, it has a strong, unified look, but mechanically, the game is literally two things: it has the platforming and world progression of a Metroidvania, and the active time battle system of mid/late '90s Square games like Final Fantasy or Chrono Trigger in an ambitious genre blend that evokes the Mario RPGs more than anything else I could think of. I don't know whether Indivisiblewill be able to keep up that juggling act for its entire runtime or if the game will crumble under its own weight like this Attack on Titan/Adventure Time shirt, but I can say for certain the sliver I played at Anime Expo was a tremendous amount of fun.
