Guacamelee! Developer, DrinkBox Studios Announces New Game, Severed (Video)

If you ever played any version of DrinkBox Studios’ Guacamelee! game, than you already know what they can accomplish. It is still one of my favorite indie games with excellent gameplay and an even better storyline. Their latest game, Severed looks to be just as interesting and unique. Unlike Guacamelee! which was a Metroidvania style game, this one is a first person dungeon crawler and features natural motion based game mechanics. I’m not sure what that means but I bet it’ll be really fun.

Press Release

DrinkBox Studios, the Toronto-based independent video game developer of Guacamelee!, Mutant Blobs Attack and About a Blob, is revealing today its newest game, Severed, which is slated for release in spring 2015.

Severed follows the saga of a distraught warrior, lost in a fantastical world, as she knits together pieces of her story from both the past and the future. As the heroine, players will embark on a journey through a surreal, nonlinear world by using a gesture-based combat mechanic to defeat enemies in this first-person adventure. During their journey, players will unlock new abilities, discover secrets of the land, and grow in power as they master both offensive and defensive techniques.

Key Features:
– Take on the role of a heroine in this first-person, dungeon crawleresque adventure
– Mysterious highly stylized surreal world to explore
– Natural-motion based mechanics to combat enemies and explore/interact with the world
– Nonlinear gameplay gives players autonomy over upgrade paths
– Light RPG elements, including spells and items that progressively upgrade the main character
– Battle multiple enemies simultaneously, each with their own strengths and weaknesses to discover
– Original soundtrack from Juno nominated band YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN and kulintang ensemble Pantayo
