In this episode we discuss Jotun and it's Norse mythological themed world. We talk about the game's hack and slash gameplay and how it's subtle tweaks to established mechanics make for a markedly different playstyle than other isometric action games. We debate our favorite powers and levels as well as our favorite level-specific mechanics. We finish up by deliberating over where video games fit into mythological traditions and whether they can or should be beholden to their source material. Should authenticity be a key factor in a game which appropriates a specific cultural legacy?
