Drinkbox Studios is pleased to announce that their new game, Severed, will be available on September 22 in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo’s Wii U system (with a release on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems soon to follow). To coincide with the launch of Severed, Nintendo is featuring the game in its #Nindies Summer Jam event, a special Nintendo eShop promotion that will showcase games that inspired Severed, along with a special one-week only 10% off introductory price of $13.49 for the Wii U version of Severed.
Severed puts players in the role of Sasha, a one-armed warrior, who has embarked on a danger-ridden quest to find her family. Players will hack, slash, and swipe their way through both nightmarish monsters and uniquely challenging puzzles.
In Severed, players use swipe-based touch controls to solve puzzles, find secrets and battle with a host of disturbing monsters, including giant floating skull wizards and beasts made of crows. During the journey, players unlock new abilities, ascend an RPG-style upgrade tree, and uncover the mysteries of the dark fantasy universe Sasha finds herself in.
