Jotun is out NOW on Nintendo Switch!

Take it outside!


Take my word for it: you simply haven't lived until you've gone toe to toe with Odin, The Allfather, and summarily handed his ass to him while riding a bus to work.

And behold! Jotun: Valhalla Edition, out today on Nintendo Switch, allows you to do just that!

Check out Jotun on the American Nintendo Store
Check out Jotun on the European Nintendo Store

And if riding public transit ain't your bag, our fans have imagined plenty of other fun places one could now conceivably play Jotun...

At any rate, we're super stoked to be releasing our first game on the Switch! If you are too, we hope you'll share the news, and maybe pick up a copy for yourself!

Cheers, y'all!

Frost Warning on Nintendo Switch!

Jotun Thunders onto Nintendo Switch in Two Weeks!

Hey everyone,

Truly stoked to share this epic news with y'all: get ready for six more weeks of winter, as we're finally bringing Jotun to the Nintendo Switch! Jotun: Valhalla Edition drops on the vaunted console worldwide on April 27th, 2018!

Have a gander at the launch trailer, why dontcha?

Needless to say, we're very excited to be bringing our first game to the Switch - we're all life-long Nintendo fans over here, and have been in absolute lurve with the Switch since launch.

We wanted to take the time and make sure we were bringing the best possible version of Jotun to the system. Happily, the Switch has the horsepower to showcase Jotun in all its hand-drawn glory, even in handheld mode, so those who played the Wii U version especially will notice the great job the team has done remastering the graphics for the Switch release.

Also, since we play a lot with scale in Jotun, Thora often being dwarfed by titanic bosses, we had to rework some of the gameplay to allow for play on a potentially much smaller screen.

Keep your eyes on our social channels for a chance to win!

We hope you're all stoked to play the game on the Switch and, say, to beat Valhalla Mode without using God Powers *while commuting to work*!

We're so happy to finally have one of our games on the Switch that we'll be holding drawings to win Jotun Switch codes and other sweet goodies! Recommend you stay tuned to our social channels between now and launch day, is all I'm sayin'...

So stay frosty, y'all! Jotun is out on Switch in two weeks!

What's happening with Sundered?

That's a very good question, Bill!

The team remains hard at work lovingly polishing delicious DLC for the game. I can confirm that said DLC has been content-complete for a few weeks (and that it's awesome), but we're still tweaking it 'til it's up to your/our standards of excellence. We're tantalizingly close to being able to share Sundered news with you - news that goes beyond the DLC itself. If I say anymore, I'll be summarily killed. But I assure y'all that you won't be disappointed.

Stay tuned!

About This Game

Resist or Embrace

Sundered is a horrifying fight for survival and sanity, a hand­-drawn epic from the ​creators of ​​Jotun. It is a replayable metroidvania where you resist or embrace ancient eldritch powers. You play Eshe, a wanderer in a ruined world, trapped in ever-­changing caverns filled with hordes of terrifying enemies. Harness the power of corrupted relics to defeat gigantic bosses, at the cost of your humanity. Resist or embrace.

Key Features

  • Beautiful hand­-drawn art and animation
  • Terrifyingly epic boss fights
  • Unique abilities that may be powerfully corrupted… at a cost
  • Hundreds of upgrades and multiple character builds
  • Dynamic encounters against hordes of enemies
  • A mix of hand-crafted & procedural levels
  • Multiple endings and over 15 hours of gameplay

Core Gameplay

Delve into a procedurally generated dungeon at the heart of a beautiful hand-drawn world. Classic Metroidvania elements such as backtracking, secrets and unlocking new abilities that open new regions are at the core of the exploration experience.

Confront hordes of dynamically spawned eldritch monsters. Put your skills and reflexes to the test through furious melee combat and epic boss fights against uniquely designed enemies. All monster spawns are dynamic, constantly keeping you on your toes.

Designed as a challenging adventure for seasoned gamers, frequent deaths are part of the Sundered experience. But taking our inspiration from our favorite rogue-like games, death in Sundered is only the beginning.

When you die, you respawn in the Hub, where you level up and customize your character. Equip and upgrade a host of unique Perks, stats and special Abilities hidden throughout the world.
