We will be introducing exhibits at BitSummit 2017. In this article, we introduce the exhibit “Sundered” along with exhibitor, Bombservice’s comments and the booth’s atmosphere.
At the Booth
“Sundered” has been receiving a lot of attention even before its official release in July. It collected eight times greater amount of investment from the crowdfunding site, KICKSTARTER.
The game is developed by Thunder Lotus Games, which received attentions and praises from indie game fans for the last game, “JOTUN.” Please stay tuned to the new work by this team! YOU WILL BE CERTAINLY AMAZED!

Q: What is the feature of this game?
A: It is featured by the speedy action and the artistic graphic.
It is so-called “dying game,” which is challenging. You die in the game numerous times and remember the enemies in each stage and proceed to the next stage.
However, the game has a brand new system that you can raise a level and get a new skill although you die.
Q: What is the benefit of an indie game?
A: I think an indie game is good because you can do anything freely.
It is also amazing that developers keep coming up with new ideas to distinguish themselves from other games.
Also, there are services such as KICKSTARTER and crowdfunding, so it has been easier for the developer to raise capital. I think it is a nice era.
*Since the developer was absent, we interviewed the translator.
Impression After Playing the Game
It is a stylish action game with challenging elements of the enemy and map gimmick, so-called “dying game.”
When you die, the character gets stronger. So you feel like you win the game although you die. It is a totally new “dying game.”
It is speedy, and the characters perform a various action, so it was fun to play even for a while.
The game is also attractive that you can explore the map freely to some extent.
