The new Mesoamerican-inspired action platformer Itorah will debut its demo showcasing a vivid, hand-painted 2D title with Metroidvania elements.
Assemble Entertainment and Grimbart Tales announced today that their next project, Itorah, would launch a new playable demo at the Steam Next Fest. Itorah is a vibrant, hand-painted 2D platformer with streamlined Metroidvania features inspired by Mesoamerican culture. It has a distinct, visually engaging graphics style and environment.
Join Itorah to save her land
Players follow the steps of Itorah as she fights her way across the wonderfully rendered world of Nahucan to defend her homeland from a horrible and strange virus. Itorah, a game with tight, fluid controls and a beautiful narrative of love and sacrifice, challenges players with difficult platforming portions that use a variety of unlocking skills, as well as engrossing fighting and dramatic boss encounters.
The hour-long demo will be accessible from October 1st through October 7th in the Steam Next Fest. It will show players previously unseen areas of the game, such as new biomes to explore and a challenging boss encounter.
Itorah will be released for PC via Steam later this year.
