Tiny Thor: A Retro-Revival Pixel Platformer Brought to Life

IndieForge’s latest offering takes players on a divine journey through the pixelated realms of Asgard.

Famed MMORPG publisher Gameforge and indie developer Asylum Square have launched their much-anticipated 16-bit pixel platformer, Tiny Thor. Available now for Windows PC through Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store, this small-scale epic is ready to enchant gamers with its retro-inspired visuals and captivating gameplay. Moreover, fans of handheld gaming will be delighted to hear that a Nintendo Switch version is on the horizon for later this summer.

In Tiny Thor, players assume the role of the young Asgardian deity, equipped with a mini-Mjölnir that ricochets off enemies and environments alike. The campaign, which offers between 10 to 20 hours of playtime, spans across 36 meticulously crafted levels. While the game is firmly rooted in old-school aesthetics, it does not shy away from implementing modern game mechanics, such as special abilities and unlockable challenge levels.

“We’re so thrilled to finally be launching Tiny Thor on PC!” said Jochen Heizmann, co-founder of Asylum Square. “We’ve worked hard to craft something truly wonderful and couldn’t be happier to finally share it with players. We want to thank everyone for their support with our demo, and can’t wait to hear what they have to say once they finally experience the full game starting today for PC and on Nintendo Switch soon as well!”

“We couldn’t be happier to help bring this title to launch,” said Stefan Erdmann, Tiny Thor product manager at Gameforge. “Tiny Thor is a heartfelt love letter to both retro titles and the players that enjoy them. We’re looking forward to seeing people enjoying Ragna-rocking it out as the littlest Asgardian on PC, as we work to bring this title to Nintendo Switch later this summer.”

Key Features of Tiny Thor:

  • It’s Hammer Time!: Use the ricocheting mini-Mjölnir and its special abilities to complete puzzles and defeat enemies
  • Small, But Mighty: Triumph in epic boss battles against Norse mythology icons such as the Kraken, and Loki
