Description

Jotun is a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology. In Jotun, you play Thora, a Norse warrior who has died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods to enter Valhalla. Jotun: Valhalla Edition is coming to PS4, Xbox One, Wii U and PC/Mac/Linux this summer. Valhalla Edition contains Valhalla Mode, a replayable boss rush mode with even fiercer versions of the already challenging jotun. Impress the Gods!

History

History

After quitting his job in January 2014, Will Dubé and friends brought Jotun to Kickstarter in July of the same year. Raising over $64,000 from 2,299 backers, Jotun was also Greenlit in under a week. The success of the Kickstarter campaign consolidated the team and the vision and allowed us to get additionnal funding from the Canadian Media Fund and the Montreal Inc Foundation. Jotun released on Steam (Windows, Mac and Linux) on September 29th, 2015. Jotun: Valhalla Edition is coming to PS4, XBOX ONE and Wii U this summer. Valhalla Edition contains Valhalla Mode, a boss rush mode with even fiercer versions of the already challenging jotun. Impress the Gods!
