Thunder Lotus Games, the developers of the Norse mythology action game, Jotun, have announced their next title today.
Heavily inspired by the writings of H.P. Lovecraft (there’s been a lot of those lately!) their next game is titled ‘Sundered’ and Thunder Lotus’ handrawn art style will be returning in a much darker fashion.
Thunder Lotus introduced the game for the first time today over at the PlayStation Blog. Here’s a quick synopsis of what the game will be about:
Sundered is a horrifying fight for survival and sanity. You play Eshe, a wanderer in a ruined world, trapped in ever-changing caverns teeming with eldritch horrors. Harness the power of corrupted relics to defeat gigantic bosses at the cost of your humanity.
Sundered is a game that builds on the strengths of Jotun: hand-drawn art, epic boss battles, and great immersion. However, we know Jotun was far from perfect. With Sundered, we’ve added more complex mechanics, tons of replayability, and meaningful choices. We’ve gone into a darker universe heavily inspired by Lovecraft’s writings.
Sundered will be procedurally generated and is described by the developers as a “Metroidvania, close to Rogue Legacy and Super Metroid”. Thunder Lotus plans to release Sundered on the PS4 (and presumably PC) sometime in 2017. You can check out the first screenshots and trailer for the game at the bottom of this article.
