Thanatos is a single player, story driven exploration based platformer set entirely in the decaying mind of an artist. The player explores the memories and regrets of a dying artist, with each memory set in a different artistic style, and each memory being a regret that the artist has. As the player you must fight the physical manifestation of these memories, and bring peace to the artist’s conflicted mind. Explore different areas based on different psychological sections of the mind, in a diverse number of art styles, gathering abilities and items to help you on your journey, and learn your true purpose. Thanatos is strongly based on Super Metroid - the lead programmers favourite game - where you explore a diverse world, grabbing power ups, upgrading your abilities and backtracking through old areas to find even greater power ups to beat a boss and explore entirely new areas.
