Thunder Lotus Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Sundered, the highly anticipated sophomore release from the creators of Jotun. With its goal set at a relatively modest 25,000$ CAD, the campaign’s stated aim is to attract a solid core of dedicated fans to the project during its testing phase, maximizing actionable feedback for the action-horror game leading up to its release on PlayStation®4, Windows, Mac, and Linux in July 2017.
“I’m truly thrilled to launch Sundered’s Kickstarter campaign,” said Will Dubé, Creative Director and President of Thunder Lotus Games in a prepared statement. “Our fans have been responding enthusiastically to our creation of a campaign focused on polish, feedback and using Kickstarter funds to make Sundered the best it can be.”
Sundered’s Kickstarter campaign runs from January 16th to February 16th 2017. The game’s latest trailer can be viewed here.
