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

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

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."
