Thunder Lotus, developer of Norse mythology-steeped Jotun, has a new game out in 2017. It’s called Sundered and will head to PS4 and PC. A new trailer and screenshots showcase the same amazing art-style and gameplay that defined Jotun and the story features Eshe, a nimble warrior battling the forces of evil in dank caverns.

The development team noted on PlayStation Blog that, “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.”

The gameplay sounds interesting because it could be a case of multiple playthroughs, which each new “life” offering something unique to one’s abilities. “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.”
