TwitchCon seems like it was a lifetime ago, but it’s only been a few months since I first saw Thunder Lotus’ upcoming title: Sundered. At the time I even did a brief write-up and interview on the game with creator William Dubé. Intrigued by the hand drawn art, and in love with the metroidvania concept and crisp controls, I was hungry for more as soon as the convention was over.
Rewind to a few days ago – I’m greeted by an email from Thunder Lotus games including my pre-alpha code for Sundered. With the game due out in July, it’s largely complete, requiring some tweaking in the form of a Beta test, which Thunder Lotus is helping to arrange with the help of a last minute Kickstarter campaign, which is launching later today (UPDATE: The Kickstarter is live, and already half funded! You can find it here)
I’ve put together a brief video on the game and my first impressions. Enjoy!
Finally, I hope you take a look at the Kickstarter campaign – $15 gets you into the Beta, as well as a digital copy of the game when it goes live. $40 gets you Alpha access. I’m very excited to see how this game shapes up in the final months, and the release in July is sure to be a summer hit!
