I put off playing Severed for years because I thought it would be a game too gruesome for me to enjoy. While DrinkBox has made a title that is thematically dark, Severed sidesteps excessive gore with its artistic direction. You’re cutting off monster limbs and eating brains, but Severed manages not to be sickening even while it is disturbing. The story of Sasha trying to find her family in a hellish dimension is about learning what it means to be human, and how to process grief. Interesting and powerful, Severed is a game you owe it to yourself to play.
