DrinkBox Studios are the brains behind the epic Guacamelee! and although it may seem a little early, they have announced a new title, Severed. It’s scheduled for release in Spring of 2015, so some concept screens and a trailer were released.
Severed follows the saga of a distraught warrior, lost in a fantastical world, as she knits together pieces of her story from both the past and the future. As the heroine, players will embark on a journey through a surreal, nonlinear world by using a gesture-based combat mechanic to defeat enemies in this first-person adventure. During their journey, players will unlock new abilities, discover secrets of the land, and grow in power as they master both offensive and defensive techniques.
