Severed is a dungeon adventure game where you wake up in a strange place, dazed and confused your family has been taken and with a severed arm. You embark on a perilous journey to find them and return home.

You navigate dungeons, fight creatures and avoid traps, while solving puzzles. It’s played from first-person perspective and requires you to pay close attention to each location. You interact by swiping the touch screen, and can swing your sword in different directions and chain combo moves together.
