Welcome to E3. I want to get right to the point with exciting new projects, so enjoy this trailer.

The trailer begins with a view of a dusty planet, covered in deserts and clouds, quickly identified as Savetel. A strange ship appears in orbit, before quickly turning itself towards the planet and rushing downwards.
On the surface, a gloved hand puts a CD into an old, broken down dune buggy and presses play. Briefly humming along, the camera pans up to reveal a blue-haired woman, dressed in a jumpsuit and a sleek leather jacket. Her hands grasp the wheel and the buggy quickly goes barrelling forward.
As the ship continues its descent, the woman in the dune buggy spots a small town on the horizon, and nudges someone in the passenger seat while smiling devilishly. The trailer cuts back to the ship, revealing its pilot to be Thorn, before returning to the surface of Savetel to show that the mysterious passenger is Rose, who emptily stares at the town.
Thorn's ship, now but a blur in the sky, crashes into the town, with Thorn stepping out and grabbing two knives. Rose and the driver quickly arrive, jumping out of the dune buggy. Thorn looks at Rose, who avoids eye contact, before the blue-haired woman removes a glove, revealing a cybernetic hand. The trailer ends with Thorn preparing to fight as the mysterious woman charges at her maniacally.
Thorn: Hollow Victories will be a 16-chapter weekly story debuting this November. Stay tuned for more information through summer and early fall.
Continuing onward, I'm proud to finally announce Yggdrasil, an IP I've been building since the start of 2015. It's definitely an odd idea, but I feel like it's also definitely something people should give a shot!
Yggdrasil is a 2D platformer and beat em' up, with cooking elements as a side game. Players control a young woman named Syzele, a huntress who wishes to receive a blessing for her crumbling village, through the world of Milli Heima, home to one of the nine Yggdrasil trees. Utilizing a variety of weaponry such as giant butcher knives, fork javelins, and kettle bombs, Syzele can defeat mighty beasts and use them as ingredients in feasts worthy of gods!Yggdrasil will begin production in July, and to answer questions about this game, I'll be holding a Q&A session tonight at 6pm CST, over on Lapis Wiki! Stop by for juicy tidbits and further details!
