Lovecraftian metroidvania Sundered coming this month

Monster monster

After shrinking us down to fit inside our computers and fight frost giants in Jotun, Thunder Lotus Games are winding up to make us even smaller -- and less consequential on a cosmic scale -- in Sundered [official site]. They've announced their new Lovecraftian metroidvania will launch on Friday, July 28th. It's explore a ruined world overcome with eldritch horrors, some of which are really, really big. We're talking 'standing knee-high to a biomechanical grasshopper' big. Have a look in this new trailer:

Being chased by a swarm of mouthed tendrilblobs looks positively awful.

Sundered will send us down and around this dreadful world, through a mixture of handcrafted and procedurally-generated levels. It'll also have multiple endings, which means plenty of surprises are in wait for folks who want to look. Beyond that, yeah, it's a metroidvania sort of dealio: explore, kill, gain new powers, explore, kill, and so on.

Sundered is coming to Windows, Mac, and Linux via Steam and GOG. It'll cost £14.99/19,99€/$19.99.

If you're quick, you can grab Jotun for free for keepsies on GOG. Thunder Lotus celebrated this announcement on Friday by making Jotun free on Steam and GOG, er, for the weekend. While Steam's offer has expired, the GOG one is up for another two hours. That might have been useful to know earlier. Sorry about that. I was distracted by failing to write a good post about machinima music videos.
