Guacamelee developer announces gesture-based Severe

Severe and equip your fallen enemies' body parts.


The next game from Guacamelee and Tales from Space developer DrinkBox Studios is Severed, a dungeon crawler where you can equip the severed body parts of fallen enemies, Destructoid reports.

It follows a distraught warrior trying to piece together a mystery, such as how she wakes up missing a part of her arm. In an open world, you’ll battle enemies through gesture-based controls in firstperson, gaining new powers by severing and equipping your enemies’ body parts.

The game offers many branching paths, and its gesture-based attacks are likened to that of Epic Games’ Infinity Blade. That said, the game requires a touch screen, so is likely for mobile platforms, but the team is open to bringing Severed to PS Vita, 3DS
