Happy #LoveIndies Week!

Hey everyone,

The fine folks at Failbetter Games (creators of TLG favorite, the richly textured seafaring survival exploration game Sunless Sea) have kicked off #LoveIndies Week, an event with the goal of celebrating indie games and their communities, while also highlighting how reviews can be a massive help to developers! Such a lovely initiative on their part!

In the spirit of the celebration, we’d like to officially re-iterate what we don’t mention nearly enough: the Thunder Lotus community is our family. Your trust and support is at the root of our work, and we never take it for granted. Thank you for supporting Thunder Lotus Games – we wouldn’t be able to do what we love without you!

Please show your love during #LoveIndies Week!

You might not know how much a simple review or rating can mean to an indie development team. They absolutely do make a huge difference to us: to our morale, visibility and sales.

All this week we’re going to recommend games from other studios that we love, and we hope you’ll take the time to rate, review and recommend indie games that you’ve loved here on Steam as well. Spread the love on social with the #LoveIndies hashtag too!

Check out our latest indie game recommendations on our Steam Developer Page!

Have a great #LoveIndies Week, y'all!

The Sundered Finisher Update Has Been Unleashed!

Featuring Fabulously Furious Final Flourishes!

Hey everyone,

We’re totally stoked to be unleashing the long-awaited Sundered Finisher Update, chock-full of delicious quality of life improvements and the badass titular finishing moves that will have you obliterating eldritch hordes in style! The Sundered Finisher Update arrives automatically as a free update to all Steam players today. Important additional updates to Sundered are still to come!

Here’s what’s in store for y’all in the Finisher Update:

  • Added a set of new combat moves we call Finishers. Once a certain number of melee attacks have been landed in a short time frame, a powerful Finisher attack is ready to be unleashed! Finishers are available from the start of the game
  • Huge balance pass to make the game smoother and reduce moments where grind feels necessary: Reworked and improved early game pacing; Increased shard drops in the early game.
  • Expanded the skill tree with new nodes and rebalanced some stat multipliers and perks.
  • Defeated bosses can be fought again for reduced rewards.
  • Added player markers to help locate the player in crowded or zoomed out locations (can be toggled in the options).
  • Tweaked minimap legend so each icon is more easily recognizable.
  • Modified tip system so as to not spoil content that is not yet accessible to the player.
  • Reduced loading times and stabilized frame rate (hurray!).
  • Other minor bug fixes.

Please remember that your feedback is crucial for us, so please do leave or update your review on our Store page , and strike up a conversation about this update with us on our Forums!
