Wotan is a 2D Beat ’em Up Where Decisions Matter

Arcade-style beat ’em ups are always a great deal of fun, but not much has been done to really modernize the formula. Wotan attempts to change things up with a game where players can choose to kill or spare the lives of enemy combatants.

According to the description, this will have ramifications down the road as characters react with gratitude or malice toward you for these choices. The idea is certainly cool but as of yet it is unknown how this is actually implemented into the beat ’em up blueprint.

Wotan is now on Steam Greenlight as well as Kickstarter where it’s asking for $11,000 in funding. Check the trailer out below to get a feel for Wotan:
