Sundered is a Lovecraftian-inspired Metroidvania from the studio behind Jotun

Thunder Lotus announces their new title Sundered.

Sundered is the new title from Thunder Lotus, the studio behind the Norse mythology ARPG Jotun.

Once again we're in for a treat with gorgeous hand-drawn art and epic boss battles, but the lessons learned from their previous title have helped them improve on gameplay.

"We know Jotun was far from perfect," the dev team writes on the PlayStation blog. "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.

"In terms of gameplay, Sundered can mostly be described as a replayable Metroidvania, close to Rogue Legacy and Super Metroid. You explore an ever-changing dungeon, fight hordes of eldritch horrors, and chose between humanity or madness."

The screenshots and trailer look lovely.

The story follows Eshe, trapped in a network of caverns, fighting gargantuan bosses with the "power of corrupted relics".

Sundered is coming to PC and PS4 in 2017.
