Beautiful Hand-Painted Platformer, ITORAH, Out Now On Steam
Developer Grimbart Tales and publisher Assemble Entertainment have released their gorgeous Mesoamerican-inspired platformer, ITORAH onto Steam.
The long-anticipated handcrafted platformer, ITORAH, has finally been released. Developed by Grimbart Tales and published by veteran publisher Assemble Entertainment (known for Lacuna and Endzone: A World Apart), Itorah hopes to reinvigorate the platforming genre. We had the pleasure of previewing its demo a while back and gave it a glowing review. You can read that here. Stefan Marcinek, the CEO and founder of Assemble Entertainment, spoke a little about the game’s story and Mesoamerican inspirations:
“Rarely do games give a spotlight to indigenous cultures and stories, and ITORAH tells a bittersweet story through hand-painted art, inspired by Mesoamerican culture […] We’re proud and thrilled to release ITORAH with Grimbart Tales today, a studio devout in its passion to create amazing games; that’s what Assemble Entertainment is all about!”
ITORAH is a gorgeous platformer with a hand-drawn art style and engrossing combat. Players will take on the role of the titular Itorah as she sets out on a journey filled with grief, loss and redemption across a doomed world inspired by ancient Mesoamerican landscapes.
