Renegade’s Radar: Sundered

Well, since Nintendo refuses to do anything Metroid (or even acknowledge the classic’s 30th anniversary),  I often find myself looking for my fix elsewhere. And with luck, I do find games that tackle the Metroidvania style of gameplay pretty well. On the horizon is a new game called Sundered, from the makers of the critically acclaimed Jotun. A game with such promise, that it reached its Kickstarter goal of $19,091 in a mere 6 hours. As of now, the game has raised $69,353 with 16 days to go.

Color me excited for the prospect of this one. When other companies make Metroidvania style games, they tend to add their own little twist. I like the idea of procedurally generated dungeons and the consequence of becoming more powerful. Also, as a plus, the art is beautiful. You still have a couple of days to back this project if you are interested in the benefits. While I usually stay away from backing Kickstarters (I’ve been burned before), this one looks to come out pretty soon and Thunder Lotus Games has a good track record.
