In Trial by Viking, you will get to morph into a polar bear, steer a flying valkyrie through mazes of hazards, ride on the claws of a great owl like a zip line, ride on a viking ship while having axe battles with Kobolds, and fight a Kraken in a swimming pool. As an agent of Odin, you will have to work through gauntlets of spikes and fire, solve tricky puzzles involving ropes, gears, switches and wind, and battle over 75 unique enemies, including 27 boss battles. Luckily, Odin may grant you permanent upgrades like Bombs, Double Jump, Chargeable Ice Axe, and Grappling Hook to help you along the way. Good luck!

1 comment by dqhendricks on Feb 10th, 2015

In Trial by Viking, you play as a proud Viking working as an agent of Odin in the worlds of the gods. You have been taught your entire life to follow the word of Odin, but good and evil are not always so black and white. Does Odin go too far to prevent an already destined future?

On your perilous journey, you will meet friends and enemies, morph into a polar bear, ride on the claws of a great owl like a zip line, steer a flying Valkyrie through mazes of hazards, sail on a viking long boat while having axe battles with Kobolds, and even fight a Kraken in a swimming pool!

Odin may grant you upgrades like bombs, wall jump, ice axe, and grappling hook, which you will need if you hope to overcome 150 levels of trickiness devised by Loki himself. Trial by Viking seamlessly balances action, puzzle, and intense narrative elements. Come check it out yourself at GDC Play booth PL 104, or find more information at Lastlifegames.com.

Inspired by the success of the Independent Game Festival Pavilion, GDC Play was created to give Independent developers a chance to show off their newest games to fellow GDC attendees. It will be open Wednesday through Friday during the GDC to all expo attendees.

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.
