One of the better indie games we managed to check out earlier this year was Thunder Lotus Games’ Sundered, a Metroidvania-style adventure where you fight against a demon horde in an effort to stay in one piece. And soon, you’ll have your chance to check it out as well.
The publisher has confirmed that the game will make its way to PlayStation 4 and PC on July 28th. The game is already available for pre-order on Steam for the discounted price of $17.99, two dollars off its normal price. It can be pre-ordered on PlayStation 4 as well, for the even lesser price of $16.99.
Here’s a quick rundown of the game’s plot, as well as its features. You can also check out the launch trailer above!
“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.”
- Beautiful hand-drawn art
- Massive boss fights
- Dynamic encounters against hordes of enemies
- A mix of hand-crafted & procedural levels
- Corruptible abilities
- Multiple endings
It’s a beautiful looking game, and, as you can tell from our impressions, it’s got a lot going for it in terms of gameplay and challenge as well. If you’re a fan of the Metroidvania style of game, you shouldn’t dare miss it.
