This week we will be trying out the beta version of game in developed titled Jotun.
Jotun is a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology. In Jotun, you play Thora, a Viking warrior who has died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods to enter Valhalla. In Jotun, you’ll explore vast regions of the Norse Purgatory to find runes that unleash the jotuns, the norse giant elementals and fight them using only your two-handed axe, your skills and the blessing of the Gods.
Personal side note, one of the characters shares the same name and spelling as my daughter … just saying … by default now I have to buy the game.
A little bit about the developers of Jotun.
After quitting his job in January 2014, Will Dubé and friends brought Jotun to Kickstarter in July of the same year. Raising over $64,000 from 2,299 backers, Jotun was also Greenlit in under a week. The success of the Kickstarter campaign consolidated the team and the vision and allowed us to get additionnal funding from the Canadian Media Fund and the Montreal Inc Foundation. Jotun is now in full production and scheduled for release on Steam (Windows, Mac and Linux) in the fall of 2015.
