If you like fresh and unusual games with beautiful art, then you’ll be very interested to hear about Thunder Lotus Games‘ latest property, Sundered. This atmospheric and lushly hand drawn game will have aspects of Lovecraftian horror and action platforming. As if that wasn’t enough to get my attention, it is also going to be procedurally generated, meaning no two playthroughs will truly be the same.
Players control Eshe as she wanders through derelict caverns teeming with edlritch horrors. She must make the choice whether or not to employ corrupted relics to succeed against hordes of foes and gigantic bosses, or whether the price of their power is too high. Will you resist the call to power, or embrace the darkness?
As for what systems Sundered will be available for, it is slated to release on PS4 and PC, though I fervently hope it will make its way to other consoles as well. Though it’s not quite clear yet, Sundered reminds me a lot of a Metroidvania, which would make this one of my most anticipated titles of 2017. If that sounds appealing to you as well, and if you’re lucky enough to be attending TwitchCon, then you’ll get a chance to see Sundered as it publicly debuts this weekend.
