Severed: the New Game from Guacamelee Dev DrinkBox

Guacamelee developer brings a whole new meaning to dismemberment

DrinkBox studios has announced its latest game for mobile platforms that makes use of touch controls in a manner similar to Infinity Blade.

Known as Severed, Destructoid reports that you take control of a female warrior who awakes to discover that her arm is missing. Naturally, this missing arm forms the crux of Severed‘s gameplay, allowing you to attach severed bodyparts from bosses to gain their abilities and attributes.

DrinkBox says that the entire game world is open from the very start, allowing for free exploration in any direction you please. The trick is that some areas will be easier than others to navigate through depending on the powers you’ve already earned.

“The high-level structure is kind of like a Mega Man structure I would say,” lead designer Greg Lesky explains.

“You can go down one path, or you can try going down one path and if it’s not really working you can go down a different path and try that path, get the new piece of armoor or whatever it is from that path, and then try that first path again [as] you’ll be more upgraded.”

So far it’s only confirmed on mobile devices, so think iOS and Android, but DrinkBox seems to be open to the idea of bringing it to other platforms that could work well with the concept – i.e. Vita, 3DS, and Wii U.

Take a look at the concept trailer above and the screenshots below.
