Unto The End is the creation of the husband and wife development team of Stephen Danton and Sara Kitamura of 2 Ton Studios. Both shared some insight from a recent press release.
“From the very start we knew we wanted a minimal art style with a side-on presentation, and gameplay that focused on player skill,” explains game designer and animator, Danton. “We also didn’t want to copy-paste an existing game model, or simply make a puzzle-platformer, roguelike, metroidvania or 2D Dark Souls.
“So we spent a lot of time trying out ideas. And although that’s fun, it’s also really scary because there’s not much there to guide you. In the end we landed on a few simple ideas and then spent a bunch of time refining them.
“Unto is a focused experience. It’s handcrafted and values quality over quantity. When it’s all done, we hope players enjoy its challenges and come away feeling a real sense of mastery and accomplishment.”
Unto The End will launch on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The release date is not set yet.
