Unto the End is a hand-crafted, 2D cinematic combat-adventure game featuring tough nuanced combat, intelligent enemies, and stylish 2D minimalistic graphics.
The game boasts a unique handcrafted 2D “read-react” combat system that focuses on skills and mastery. The studio has further enhanced the challenge by creating intelligent enemies, thus making each battle a tactical, nuanced experience.
2 Ton Studios has used minimalistic artistic graphics and heavy shading to draw focus to crucial details and atmosphere; for example, human characters lack facial features. In addition, the game synchronises the visual design and play-style by combining deadly traps and terrain-based challenges in the cavernous underground ruins and tough mountain peaks.
According to the game’s Steam page, the narrative is crafted around a father’s lonely, desperate, and heroic journey to reunite with his wife and daughter. “Armed with a sword, a dagger, and his wits, he must outfight and outsmart the creatures he encounters as he treks through unfamiliar lands, where every step brings him closer to home but is fraught with untold dangers.”
Unto the End was announced at EGX 2019 and is the project of a husband and wife development team at 2 Ton Studios. The release date is yet to be confirmed.
