Slice up foes and attach their limbs to yourself in Severed, by the makers of Guacamélee!

The next game from DrinkBox Studios (creators of Guacamélee!) is called Severed, and in it, players will explore an open world, defeat enemies — and attach their foes' body parts to themselves.

Severed is a gesture-based game coming to mobile platforms, but DrinkBox told Destructoid that it is open to the idea of bringing it to consoles that support gestures. DrinkBox is aiming for a 2015 release.

Lead designer Greg Lesky told Destructoid that the upgrade paths offered by absorbing your enemies body parts "is kind of like a Mega Man structure."

For more details on the game, see the announcement trailer above, and visit the link for several screenshots.
