Mesoamerican-Inspired Platformer ITORAH Receives Release Date and New Dev Diary

Embark on a journey through the exotica of Nahucan and unravel the dark mystery of an arcane plague in Grimbart Studios’ debut title

Wiesbaden, Germany – 23rd November, 2021. Today, the team at Grimbart Tales is elated to announce a spring 2022 launch window 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-ax, are tasked with navigating the treacherous lands and defeating deadly foes to liberate Nahucan and its inhabitants. Today, the team brings us a new video, showing adventurers what lies in wait in ITORAH.

“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,” said Artur Bäcker, Grimbart Tales Lead Artist, Creative Director, and Co-Founder. “Our goal is to create similar experiences for future generations and to allow space for older generations to revel in nostalgia.”

In the spirit of “easy to learn, difficult to master”, ITORAH captures the balance between platforming combat, puzzles, and impressive visual storytelling. A true labor 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.
