Hand-drawn Platformer Sundered Enters Beta, New Trailer and Gameplay Released

May 15, 2017 Written by Zarmena Khan

Thunder Lotus Games’ hand-drawn platformer, Sundered, is still on track for release this July and although we don’t have a specific release date, the developer has unveiled a new trailer (above) and some gameplay footage.

From the creators of Jotun, the replayable metroidvania has entered beta phase, with codes going out to Kickstarter backers tomorrow. You can check out some PC beta footage below courtesy of YouTube user Jesse Cox.


In case you missed it, here’s what the game is all about:

Sundered is a horrifying fight for survival and sanity. 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.

Sundered is a game that builds on the strengths of Jotun: hand-drawn art, epic boss battles, and great immersion. However, we know Jotun was far from perfect. With Sundered, we’ve added more complex mechanics, tons of replayability, and meaningful choices. We’ve gone into a darker universe heavily inspired by Lovecraft’s writings.

We’ll update our readers when a release date is announced.
