Sundered | Architecture

A little while back I notified everyone of Thunder Lotus Games’ latest title, called Sundered. Set in a creepy and dark universe where every decision you make can save or damn your eternal soul, the game looks like a Lovecraftian Metroidvania. To say I am excited would be an understatement, since I love that particular genre and feel that Thunder Lotus Games’ unique art style could bring a lot to the experience.

Sundered | Embrace

In the latest trailer, titled “Embrace”, we get to see a bit more of how Sundered plays. A alien voice narrates the proceedings as you watch the combat. Speaking of which, the combat looks very fluid, frantic and intense, with wall climbing, energy blasting action. Sundered looks very nicely creepy, with strange architecture, somber tunes and great animation, and I am quite excited to actually play the game. Set to release in 2017 sometime, it is coming to Steam, PS4, GOG and Humble Bundle. To see what I’m so worked up about, check out the trailer below. And chime in with your comments about how Sundered looks to you!
