Today’s deal is Jotun: Valhalla Edition!
UB IWERKS DOES SOUND PRETTY BADASS THOUGH
If you ever stopped believing that hard work was the best way to get good at something, that’s probably because you’ve never heard of vikings or animators. Now obviously, one is a crazy strong Norse warrior and the other draws a bunch of super similar looking pictures to create the illusion of motion, and we guess it goes without saying that the combination of the two is ridiculous except oh yeah hold the phone, that’s exactly what Jotun is all about.
Now, like us, your first thought was probably dudes in fur huddling around drawing boards in 1930’s sweatshop style conditions, drinking mead and figuring out how to add sound effects to Steamboat Willie, but actually, it’s more that Jotun is a sick exploration-based action game with completely hand-drawn animation, and if that doesn’t get whoever made this game into Valhalla as a brave and unflappable warrior, we don’t know anything that will.
And actually, it’s funny that should even come up (except no it’s not, because we wrote this description for this exact purpose), since Thora, the hero of our story, actually has to get herself on that very exclusive Valhalla guest list, since she wasn’t actually able to die an honorable enough warrior’s death. Isn’t that metal as f**k? Not to mention that there’s a grip of sick beasts to fight, all the voiceovers are in real Icelandic, and your main weapon is a giant two-handed axe, so yeah folks, try this game out today, and rejoice because you only need to drop four little bucks to get it, and maybe it’s just cause we can’t resist a killer game deal, but that’s pretty darn neat in Chrono.gg’s book.
Not that we have an actual book where we write down how cool stuff is, mind you. It’s just an expression.
