About Trial by Viking

Trial by Viking is an epic action adventure game filled with dungeon exploration, mad dashes, and axe wielding combat in the dark worlds of the Norse gods. Fans of games like Rogue Legacy, Super Mario Brothers Wii/U, Metroidvanias, and Super Meat Boy should feel right at home.

There are 130 hand crafted levels that range from frantic mad dashes, to dungeon exploring treasure hunts. With over 80 unique enemies, 27 intense boss battles, and countless challenge and puzzle elements, there will be a lot to discover. Luckily you will also be able to collect powerful character upgrades along the way to help you battle ever tougher foes, as well as unlock new unexplored areas.

"With an incredible variety of combat abilities, equippable weapons, abilities, and passives, the game will both empower and challenge the ever-loving crap out of you. This is a compelling universe with fantastic art, music, and tons of content that’s not to be missed." - Seattle Indies Expo jury

It won't be out until Fall this year. There will not be a web player version, although there is a possibility of a web player demo. The downloadable full version should be available on steam/humble/itch.io/other online stores later this year. I also have high hopes for some of the console online stores, but can't promise anything yet.
