Platform:

In this tribute to Viking mythology, you are Thora, a Norse warrior who has died an inglorious death. In order enter Valhalla, she must endure the challenges of Viking purgatory.

Jotun's gameplay is a love letter to classic games such as The Legend of Zelda. It has simple controls, action-packed boss fights and a mythic Viking world to discover.

Jotun is not a "hack-and-slash" RPG. There are no experience points and few stats. Every item is important and every fight is necessary. The combat in Jotun is fast-paced and brutally hard. Using only your massive two-handed axe, you'll take on foes that are hundreds of times your size.

Features:

  • Beautiful 2D hand-drawn art style
  • Epic boss fights against the mighty jotun
  • A vast and mysterious randomly-generated world to explore filled with environmental puzzles based on Viking culture and mythology
  • An overarching story to discover for both Thora and Purgatory itself
  • Shrines to the Viking Gods
  • An amazing musical score, specifically composed for every gameplay moment

A Kickstarter campaign for the game will run until August 20, 2014. The developer, as well as Odin, would appreciate your support.

Jotun is targeted for release in September 2015 on PC and Mac.
