Description

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 ever­changing caverns teeming with eldritch horrors. Harness the power of corrupted relics to defeat gigantic bosses, at the cost of your humanity. Resist or embrace.

History

Sundered is a game that builds on the strengths of Thunder Lotus' first game, Jotun: hand-drawn art, epic boss battles, and a fully immersive world. In addition, Sundered has been designed to be a more varied and replayable experience than Jotun, including more complex mechanics and meaningful player choices. Further, with Sundered, Thunder Lotus delves into a darker universe heavily inspired by Lovecraft’s writings.

Description

Jotun is a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology. In Jotun, you play Thora, a Norse warrior who has died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods to enter Valhalla.

History

After quitting his job in January 2014, Will Dubé and friends brought Jotun to Kickstarter in July of the same year. Raising over $64,000 from 2,299 backers, Jotun was also Greenlit in under a week. The success of the Kickstarter campaign consolidated the team and the vision and allowed us to get additionnal funding from the Canadian Media Fund and the Montreal Inc Foundation.

Jotun released on Steam (Windows, Mac and Linux) on September 29th, 2015. Jotun: Valhalla Edition was released to PS4, XBOX ONE and Wii U in summer 2016. Valhalla Edition contains Valhalla Mode, a boss rush mode with even fiercer versions of the already challenging jotun.
