Last year, Norse adventure game Jotun landed on Kickstarter and raised 130% of its goal. Over 2,000 backers put money forward to support the game, which follows a disgraced Norse warrior named Thora on a quest to prove herself to the gods of Valhalla and escape Viking purgatory. Thora will be doing so by collecting runes to summon elemental giants called the jotun before promptly thwacking lumps out of them with her giant axe.
That sounds wonderful, sure, but interviews and gameplay trailers can only get you so far. We want to feel what Jotun‘s world is really like; be chilled by its digital panes of ice and its freezing giant’s breath. Handy then, that the Jotun alpha demo has just gone live.
