Fans of Metroidvania- style, side-scrolling, combat games are in for a real treat, because developer, Thunder Lotus, has released the premiere trailer for Sundered. Thunder Lotus is previously known for their work on the Norse-themed, boss-fighting game, Jotun.
You will play as Eshe, a wanderer trapped in horrible, ever-changing caverns, who must call upon the power of corrupted relics and sacrifice her humanity to defeat gigantic bosses. The level design and art design brings to mind the eldritch horror of H.P. Lovecraft.
Sundered will be released on Playstation 4 and PC early next year and creative director William Dube explained on the Playstation Blog, “we know Jotun was far from perfect. With Sundered, we’ve added more complex mechanics, tons of replayability, and meaningful choices.”
