Sundered Getting a Closed Beta on May 16th

Today, developer Thunder Lotus Games announced that its horror metroidvania game, Sundered, is getting a Closed Beta on May 16th, running to an undisclosed time.

The news came via the following tweet:

You can sign up for the beta by signing up for the game’s mailing list here, which in turn enters you in the race to win access. If you backed the game on Kickstarter, you will automatically gain access.

The beta is said to offer up a never-before-seen version of the game, and is only available on PC (aka it’s not available on PS4).

For those of you who have never heard of Sundered — no problem — here’s an overview and its announcement trailer:

Sundered is a horrifying fight for survival and sanity, a hand­-drawn epic from the ​creators of ​​Jotun.

Harness the power of corrupted relics to defeat gigantic bosses, at the cost of your humanity. Resist or embrace.


  • Beautiful hand­-drawn art
