Independent developer Drinkbox Studios announced that they will be bringing their colorful touch-enabled action game, Severed, to Nintendo’s Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Apple iOS. In Severed, players take the role of the one-armed warrior Sasha who explores a strange world filled with insidous evil as she searches for her family. Using combinations of swipe-based gestures, players will battle nightmarish monsters, solve puzzles and more.
Severed is scheduled for release this Summer on iOS, Wii U and 3DS. There will be a cross buy promotion between the Nintendo consoles.
In Severed players take control of a one-armed warrior named Sasha, wielding a living sword on her journey through a nightmare world in search of her family. Players use swipe-based touch controls to solve puzzles, find secrets and do 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.
“We’re very pleased to be able to bring Severed to major touch-enabled platforms,” said Graham Smith, Co-Founder of Drinkbox Studios. “The game’s recent release on the Vita was well-received by critics and fans alike, and we look forward to bringing the experience to Apple and Nintendo fans.”
