Soundtrack is now available



The arranged soundtrack for 'THOTH' by composers Cristian Vogel and SØS Gunver Ryberg is now available for purchase. The album represents an artist impression of the video game audio world, rather than a direct documentation of the in-game score.

Update: Major Difficulty Adjustments



The "THOTH Have Mercy" update is now live. We have been going through the feedback we have received, watched countless of youtube / twitch vids, and we admit that the game was indeed too hard and frustrating for it's own good.

This update tackles three major points of criticism: The game is too punishing and repetitive, the game is too fast or hard to control, and the end-game is too difficult.

Changelog:

  • A "second chance" mechanic has been added. Instead of losing progress when you die in a stage, you get another chance on that same stage but with lava as walls. This feels much more fair, balanced and fun.
  • The game is 10% slower, both player movement and enemy movement. This makes avoiding enemies easier, and puts more focus on making smart decisions in the heat of battle.
  • The second procedural challenge has been cut down from 16 rooms to 12, and the stages have been tweaked to be a bit easier.
  • The first four levels are much easier.
  • The two final challenges are now "inverted mode", a remixed version of the normal 64 stages, but without checkpoints. This is intentionally super hard, but is much more manageable with the new "second chance" mechanic.
  • Some players requested being able to mute the game, so 'm' now mutes all audio.
  • The Bastet and Anubis achievements now only require you to beat 8 and 16 levels in a row, instead of 16 and 32.
  • Finally, two new achievements for completing the inverted challenges have been added, and the achievement for completing the no longer existing lava challenge has been renamed to "Zet", the username of the only player who proved unlocking all achievements in the original release. To unlock this achievement you have to beat the inverted challenge without using a second chance.

About This Game

"There's a ruthless intelligence at work, a sense that the genre’s rulesets and iconography have been crushed to the size of an atom, to the point of implosion." - Rolling Stone


From the creators of the award-winning '140' comes an innovative and intense new entry in the twin-stick shooter genre. Though it’s deeply rooted in the arcade tradition, THOTH also brings something unique to the table. Each stage in the game is specifically designed to require both puzzle solving and finesse to get through. Players constantly need to think about positioning and timing while making sure to both dodge enemies and avoid collisions.

Aesthetically, THOTH is a vibrant rush of colors, shapes, and patterns accompanied by a brutal soundtrack by electronic music pioneers Cristian Vogel & SØS Gunver Ryberg. The imposing aesthetics and the relentlessly demanding gameplay eventually induces a trance-like state in the player.
