About the Alpha
In Jotun’s Alpha, you explore the Winter Region. Inspired by Niflheim itself, it is an unforgiving and solitary land, inhabited by the fierce Winter jotun. This is one of the five different regions in the game.
About The Game:
Jotun is a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology. In Jotun, you play Thora, a Viking warrior who has died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods to enter Valhalla. In Jotun, you’ll explore vast regions of the Norse Purgatory to find runes that unleash the jotuns, the norse giant elementals and fight them using only your two-handed axe, your skills and the blessing of the Gods.
In the summer of 2014, Jotun raised over $64,000 on Kickstarter and was Greenlit in under a week, drawing attention from several important game outlets. Jotun was also recently selected as one of the best games at PAX East 2015 and SXSW Gaming, being featured in key gaming outlets:
