Indie Game Announcement: Jotun, Epic Action-Exploration in Norse Mythology
Jotun is an indie game for PC and Mac that is live on Kickstarter. The campaign has reached 20% of its $50,000 goal and been selected to be featured by the Kickstarter staff in less than 24 hours.
Earlier this year, I quit my job as a free-to-play mobile game designer to make an indie title true to my gaming roots. Inspired by Norse mythology and other centuries-old stories, Jotun is a love letter to classic and honest gaming.
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.
The gameplay draws inspiration from games like The Legend of Zelda, Journey and Shadow of the Colossus.
I hope that Jotun has sparked your interest and that you will consider featuring the game. More details can be found on Kickstarter http://www.kickstarter.com/
Thank you so much for your time and I hope to be hearing from you soon.
