Guacamelee dev Drinkbox reveals their new game, Severed

New title heading to smartphones and tablets next year

Drinkbox studios, the developer behind curious luchadore Metroidvania adventure Guacamelee has unveiled their latest game.

Severed is a non-linear dungeon crawler which will offer players the choice of when and how they upgrade. It will use gesture controls in a similar way to Infinity Blade.

The story follows the adventures of a warrior who loses part of her arm. Along the way she can pick up new powers by severing parts of enemies and attaching them to herself. Guacamelee dev Drinkbox reveals their new game, Severed

Lead designer Greg Lesky said, "The high-level structure is kind of like a Mega Man structure I would say. 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 armor or whatever it is from that path, and then try that first path again [as] you'll be more upgraded."

Severed is in development for smartphones and tablets but Drinkbox are also considering releasing on PS Vita, 3DS and Wii U. They are aiming for a release some time in 2015.
