Severed Launching April 26 on PS Vita

Hi everyone! This is Graham from Drinkbox Studios, creators of About a Blob, Mutant Blobs Attack, and Guacamelee!

We’ve been hard at work on Severed for the past two years and we’re excited to announce that the game will launch for PS Vita on April 26 for $14.99. PlayStation Plus subscribers can also expect a 10% discount during the launch week.

The Long Road…

If you haven’t heard of Severed before, here’s a quick run-down: Severed is a first-person dungeon crawling adventure where you equip the carcasses of your enemies to gain their powers. You play as Sasha, a warrior who wakes up in a surreal fantasy world and sets off on a mission to find the missing members of her family.

Severed was initially planned as a Spring 2015 release, but after showing an early demo of the game at PlayStation Experience in December 2014 we were inspired with a ton of new ideas and decided there was a lot more we wanted to add. It only took a whole extra year, but we’ve finally finished packing in as much as we could into Severed and we’re really happy with how it has turned out.

Original Soundtrack Available Now

While Severed is still a few weeks away from release, the Original Soundtrack for the game is available for streaming and download today right here. Composed by the Juno nominated band Yamantaka // Sonic Titan and special guests Pantayo, the intense progressive rock music in Severed’s OST gives a good sense of the unique atmosphere you can expect to find in Sasha’s adventure.

We’re huge fans of PS Vita and we’re excited to finally get it into the hands of PS Vita owners. Hope you all love the game as much as we enjoyed making it!

      I can only assume you’ll make a purchase of Severed for every exclamation point you have used.

  • @Chris McQuinn

    Absolutely! (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    ;-)

  • Absolutely can’t wait!! I got to play it at PSX14 and I’ve been so excited for it ever since!

  • Day 1! Thank you guys! I have been looking forward to this for quite a while! Keep making great games.

  • This is such great news! Thank you for the hard work, the Vita loyalists appreciate it greatly. ALL VITA OWNERS SHOULD BUY THIS GAME! Drinkbox rules!

  • Yay! Very excited to get my hands on this. Looks like Severed and Alienation on the same day. Sign me up for both!

  • I have never bought a game on Day 1 but will make an exception in this case. I love Drinkbox games!

  • Words cannot express how grateful I am to Drinkbox studios. One of the ONLY studios left who actually make games SPECIFICALLY for the Vita. This will be a day 1 purchase for me, thank you for supporting the vita <3

  • Can’t wait! Love it when games come to vita, so thanks for that very much.

  • veryhoudini11

    This game looks awesome. You guys always have a great atristic style and solid gameplay. Lookimg forward to picking this up on launch day.

  • So, can this be played on a PS TV or only the Vita proper. I’ve got both, so I’ll most likely get this one way or another. I just hope it’s turn based. :)

    • It’s swipe based.

      Think of your finger as a sword. That’s how it works.

      It requires the touch screen, so unfortunately it won’t be possible to play on PS TV. :(

    • Wel, the PS TV can enable touchscreen controls in the set-up. As well as if you use a PS4, the frontswipe pad works on some games. I was just hoping for that.

      Regardless, I’ll get it. You guys do tremendous work, and support the VITA. Rock on, Drinkbox!

  • vanillamoose

    As a proud owner of a Vita I will purchase severed upon release. Thank you kindly for supporting the Vita!!!

  • rabidninjamonky

    I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time. I’ll pick it up day 1 for sure. Looks like the extra wait was worth it. I just watched the release date trailer, and the game looks great!

  • I hope all the effort you put into the Vita ends up being worth it. I for sure will do my part and buy this game the minute it is available.

  • Will this work on PSTV? I Will buy it ether way, just asking because it looks like it uses the touch screen heavily. Man I wish sony updated the PSTV to let us use our Vita’s as a controller for touch games. I just want to play it on my monitor.

  • Will it be compatible with the PlayStation TV?

    • Silver_shion

      Finally !!!
      I’ve been waiting this game since it was announced.
      It looks cool , it sounds cool, Day 1 for me

    • Silver_shion

      I don’t think so.
      The game uses touch screen controls.

  • Silver_shion

    Finally !!!
    I’ve been waiting this game since it was announced.
    It looks cool , it sounds cool, Day 1 for me

  • Yes! The wait is almost over ….. I am ready to buy!!!

  • This is such great news! Thanks for supporting the Vita :D

  • pablikenemy79

    Awesome, Thanks So Much for Suporting The Vita !

  • WidthOfACircle

    This is awesome. I saw the news having no idea what the game was and wanted to support it as a Vita game, but a dungeon crawler also? Fantastic.

  • dancingmind

    Hi drinkbox team! Big fan of your work and a fellow Torontonian. Also a big vita fan

    So obviously day 1 purchase from me! I hope you have a great launch guys!

  • Like many people here, thanks for supporting the Vita even though Sony almost abandoned it already. Haven’t see any videos of it but based on your track record of both mutant blob and guacamelee, I’m willing to put down cash in day one. I’m a smartphone gamer but believe there is always a spot for Vita.

    Rock on!

  • Will be getting this just for DRPG. Plan to complete all dungeon crawling games…this one being unique with swipe.

    Not sure why other DRPG have not tried to use the touchscreen.

    Maybe to celebrate, some of your older titles on sale. Gucamelee and Dlc.

    • If I had to guess, it’s because of all the people who hate mobile games, and they look at games that don’t use tactile buttons as if they are the scourge of all gaming.

      It takes a company with a reputation for quality like Drinkbox for people to not classify it instantly as a mindless fruit ninja.

  • THE KINGS OF THE VITA RETURN!!!! Guacamelee is one of the best games of all time. Right up there with CSOTN and Super Metroid. anyways love you guys.

  • It’s true. All of it.

  • Considered releasing the soundtrack on vinyl? Please do!

  • Drinkbox is one of my favorite developers, I can’t wait to “slice” into your latest creation! I’ve been waiting for this experience since it was first revealed, and I can’t believe it’s almost here! It looks so unique and compelling. Also, that price is amazing, how did you pull that off!?! I’m so ready, hype hype hype!

  • Looking forward to playing this. Your last two games have been fantastic, so I’m quite confident you’ll bring the same polish and eye for details to this game.

  • A bit late but a simple inquiry into the combat system? The videos I’ve seen make it look like all you do is swipe. I’m sure there’s more to it but haven’t found any info.

    Thanks for the Vita support.

  • murkyliquids

    I played “Mutant Blobs” and highly enjoyed it; I will probably re-install it and replay it, haha. Thank you for supporting the VITA, and I will also be supporting your game; judging from the trailers it looks very unique. Is there a chance that it will also release physically (hem, hem, LimitedRunGames, hem, hem)?

  • BERT-MACKL1N-FBI

    Cannot express how much I appreciate your willingness to support the Vita. This is a day one purchase for me and expect to enjoy every second of the game.

    Thanks Drinkbox!

  • AkaSouljaKid

    AWWWW YEAH! I’m totally buying this game for my Vita! :) Thank you for bringing us this game!

  • carlthewinner

    You guys are amazing! I LOVED Tales From Space and Guacamele!

    I am totally in on Severed! Thanks for the vita love! :)

  • Just for a note and question for the devs. It’s not compatible with PSTV because it uses touch controls. Is it frantically touch-heavy? Because the PSTV does have touch control options via a DS4 touchpad or the L3/R3 Touch Controls. If that could be doable could you release it compatible with the PSTV?

    Some games that are very touch-focused are compatible, like Plants vs Zombies that has no button controls.

  • TehFineztJokerX

    Can’t wait for this game. Any new of a possible physical release?

  • I found out about this game through Kinda Funny Games and I’ve been excited ever since!!! Can’t wait!!

  • dailydryerase

    games like this are the reason Vita kicks ass. Thanks Drinkbox! Get a Vita. Don’t ask why or how, just do it!

  • After you gave me the best metroidvania luchador experience of my life, how could I not pre-order this?

    Not only that! You’re supporting the VITA, which means A LOT to us thirsty Vita players!!!

    Thank you Drinkbox, you’re awesome!
