Thunder Lotus Games is one of many indie game developers taking to Steam in order to digitally distribute their game. In addition to Steam Greenlight, Jotun has also launched a crowdfuning campaign on Kickstarter to secure funding for their project. After reaching over 50% of its $50,000 goal in less than seven days, Jotun continues to surprise gamers and press alike with its thunderous momentum.
After many months of work, it seems that Jotun creator Will Dubé's gamble of quitting his job as a mobile free-to-play game designer to follow his indie dream might actually pay off.
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 gameplay draws inspiration from games like The Legend of Zelda, Journey and Shadow of the Colossus.
