Jotun developers Thunder Lotus Games have announced Sundered which they say is a horrifying fight for survival and sanity.
This is a hand‐drawn action‐horror game where you play wanderer Eshe trapped in “ever-changing caverns” which means the levels are procedural. Players will also need to “harness the power of corrupted relics” to defeat the bosses.
“Sundered is a game that builds on the strengths of Jotun : hand‐drawn art, epic boss battles and great immersion. With Sundered, we’ve added more complex mechanics, tons of replayability and meaningful choices. Finally, we’ve gone into a darker universe, heavily inspired by Lovecraft’s writings.”
