Jotun Release Date
Through Cold & Darkness - Beta Trailer is Live!
Release date: September 2015
Jotun is an action-exploration game for PC and Mac that takes you on an epic journey through Viking purgatory.

In Jotun, you play Thora, a Norse warrior who has died an inglorious death and must face the challenges of Viking purgatory to prove herself to the Gods and enter Valhalla.

Jotun's core loop revolves around collecting Runes to summon and fight the jotun, gigantic Norse elementals. The game focuses on the balance between atmospheric exploration and ferocious combat. Imagine the mysterious romantic mood of Journey mixed with the scale of the boss fights in Shadow of the Colossus in top-down 2D.

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. We prefer to avoid numbers and text when possible: there are no experience points and few stats. Like the Vikings, you must prove your valor to the Gods using only your wits and your skill in combat.

See you in purgatory!

  • 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 in 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

calavera the game is to short by console standards to even bother. 5 boses almost nothing to do runing from point a to point b despite the best efforts of the developers since you wont be fighting except for the bosses. the game is short.

you may as well be requesting titan souls for the PS4 lol... wait thats a thing WTF
