The team at Grimbart Tales is elated to announce a Spring 2022 launch window on PC for the studio’s debut title ITORAH, a dazzling action-platformer featuring beautiful hand-drawn environments and themes heavily inspired by Mesoamerican culture and legends.
In the game, a curtain of evil in the form of a plague looms over the beautiful and once-thriving Nahucan. Alone, and seemingly the last human on Earth, the titular Itorah and her mouthy companion, a sentient battle-axe, are tasked with navigating the treacherous lands and defeating deadly foes to liberate Nahucan and its inhabitants.
“I can promise you; behind the many layers of color leads a deep, emotional, and gloomy story that will appeal to all ages and leave you curious for more – Our goal is to create similar experiences for future generations and to allow space for older generations to revel in nostalgia.”
Artur Bäcker – Grimbart Tales Lead Artist, Creative Director, and Co-Founder
In the spirit of “easy to learn, difficult to master”, ITORAH captures the balance between platforming combat, puzzles, and impressive visual storytelling.
Truly a labour of love, the studio has thoughtfully captured the best elements of the 8- and 16-bit platforming days, blending them with gorgeous hand-painted assets and quality character animations. Explore a variety of diverse biomes, battle enemies ranging from pint-sized to leviathan, and solve the mystery of humanity’s disappearance in this strikingly beautiful and heartfelt adventure.
