Montreal, Canada ‐ September 26, 2016 ‐ Thunder Lotus Games has revealed Sundered, the highly anticipated sophomore release from the creators of Jotun. Sundered, a darkly atmospheric hand‐drawn action‐horror game, will be released on PlayStation®4, Windows, Mac, and Linux in 2017.
“I’m extremely excited to announce Thunder Lotus’ brand new game,” said Will Dubé, Creative Director and President of Thunder Lotus Games. “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 make its public debut this week at TwitchCon 2016 (San Diego, CA, Sep. 30 to Oct. 2) with a playable version.
Sundered is a horrifying fight for survival and sanity, a hand‐drawn epic from the creators of Jotun. 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. Resist or Embrace. Coming 2017.
