Thunder Lotus Announces New Action-Horror Title Sundered

“Resist or Embrace”: the makers of Jotun have revealed a trailer for their new hand-drawn blend of side-scrolling action and horror

Thunder Lotus Games has released a launch trailer for Sundered, their new dark and atmospheric action-horror title.

Hand-drawn in the same way as their acclaimed first title Jotun, Sundered looks to provide a rare combination of colorful fantasy and atmospheric horror.

Players will control Eshe, a lone traveler through a ravaged procedurally generated world, fighting for survival and their very sanity itself. Expect to fight against Lovecraftian horrors, hordes, and enormous bosses that threaten to tear Eshe apart.

In order to survive however, you’ll have to utilize the brutal power of corrupted relics to smite your enemies, at the expense of your very humanity. These dark, dynamic and meaningful choices between power and sanity will feed into a replayable experience with multiple possible endings.

Speaking of his excitement for the new game, Thunder Lotus’ Creative Director Will Dubé said the following:

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.”

Sundered will be released on PlayStation 4, Windows, Mac and Linux in 2017, but stay tuned to TwitchCon this September 30th-October 2nd for the game’s playable debut.
