Like me, do you miss the classic 2D metroidvania games? Thunder Lotus Games have you covered with their latest project, Sundered. Sundered is a cosmic horror filled fight for survival and sanity, drawing heavily from the works of H.P. Lovecraft.
The Kickstarter was made with a rather modest goal of $25,000 Canadian (roughly $25,385 Australian), with the main aim being to attract a dedicated fanbase to help test the game in its early stages and refine it before the release in July this year. The core gameplay consists of four main elements: Explore, Fight, Die and Upgrade
Delve into a procedurally generated dungeon at the heart of a beautiful hand-drawn world. Classic Metroidvania elements such as backtracking, secrets and unlocking new abilities that open new regions are at the core of the exploration experience.
Confront hordes of dynamically spawned eldritch monsters. Put your skills and reflexes to the test through furious melee combat and epic boss fights against uniquely designed enemies. All monster spawns are dynamic, constantly keeping you on your toes.
Designed as a challenging adventure for seasoned gamers, frequent deaths are part of the Sundered experience. Taking inspiration from our favourite rogue-like games, death in Sundered is only the beginning.
When you die, you respawn in the Hub, where you level up and customise your character. Equip and upgrade a host of unique perks, stats and special abilities hidden throughout the world.
Sundered’s Kickstarter campaign runs from now until February 16th 2017, and will arrive on PS4, Windows, Mac, and Linux in July 2017. More details can be found at the Kickstarter
