This is Severed, a game where the heroine has to put herself back together. Literally.
Drinkbox Studios — makers of last year’s well-loved luchadore action-platformer Guacamelee — just revealed their next game via the very flashy trailer above. It looks like it’s headed to touchscreen devices, based on the gestural input prompts seen in the clip. Here’s how Drinkbox describes the game:
In Severed, you play as a distraught warrior, who is lost in a fantastical world. She is tasked with the challenge of knitting together pieces of her story from both the past and the future. Our heroine will embark on a journey through a surreal non-linear world using a gesture based combat mechanic to defeat enemies in this first person adventure. Unlock new abilities, discover secrets of the land, and grow in power as you master both offensive and defensive techniques. Let Severed be your mystery to unravel.
