Grab your friends and get ready for the craziest fights in our fast-paced asymmetrical multiplayer game.

The meanest? The baddest? The silliest?

indiedb bossgard bosses

Choose from a variety of unique bosses that are yours to command!

Strike fear in your enemies as a mighty fortress or keep them on edge as an angry slice of bread, it all depends on how bossy you feel today!

viking abilities

If you’re more of a team player, team up with your friends and fight together as a party of brave vikings.

From the bulkiest to the shortest, the Vikings are going all in.

Go toe-to-toe with the Bosses as a Melee warrior or keep your cool and distance as a Ranged hero.

Axes, hammers, bows and even bare knuckles will help you drop the pain on the Boss.

What’s your weapon of choice?

Spice things up with an array of WACKY ARENAS.

Bass-blasting concert stages, giant deadly espresso machines, choose where you make your stand!

Choose carefully though as each environment will test your mettle with themed traps, making each battle memorable.indiedb eye bossgard

WHY BOSSGARD? Because it’s accessible and straight to the point.

No gear, no leveling, no stat calculating, just straight, drop-in, TWIN STICK BOSS-FIGHT ACTION.

Grab a gamepad, pick a Viking or a Boss and start battling.

It’s that simple. And the more the merrier!

It's not a fair fight. The Boss is bigger, badder and stronger than any feat a lonely Viking might perform.

But what the Vikings lack in size they compensate through teamwork.

Each Viking has its own UNIQUE ABILITY on top of which they get another, RAGE ATTACK.

Combine these two along with the rest of the party members' skills and you get a formidable fighting force.

indiedb gif stage2

So the Vikings are working together and you're playing Boss. Big whoop.

Just wait and sustain enough blows to see your RAGE BAR fill up.

When that happens it's Hell-on-earth for the poor colorful Norsemen.

Each BOSS features a devastating RAGE ATTACK meant to turn the tide of battle.

Bossgard - Our Characters


bossgard portrait asha

Asha - The Canadian Viking

A great engineer and an even greater warrior. Wielding a hammer inspired by Thor's Mjolnir, she deploys a mechanical auto-turret that shreds her enemies to bits.

bossgard portrait bhaarboot

Bhaar-Boot - The Demon of Chance

Initially a rigged die used by Loki to trick his victims, Bhaar-Boot is the embodiment of frustration and unfairness.

bossgard portrait brunhilde

Brunhilde - The German Viking

Also known as the Bard of Bards, author of the Ballad of Ballads, Bruhnilde is a clumsy yet brave warrior. Resembling a dwarven Valkyrie, the only thing Brunhilde can handle better than her lute is the spear.

bossgard portrait duke

Duke - The American Viking

The Dude, the Man, the Bro, Duke is the supreme lord of the seven seas, the first Viking to figure out that surfing is way better than sailing. Although a masterful spear hurler, Duke truly shines when he's riding the tallest wave.

bossgard portrait edith

Edith - The British Viking

An oddball of the crew (which is really saying a lot), Edith is the kindest necromancer one might come across. What Edith values most is family and tradition, which is why she always enters battle alongside her resurrected relatives.

bossgard portrait fortress

Fortress - The Overlord

A terrifying living structure, the entity known only as Fortress is believed by some to be born out of Odin's sacrificed eye. Fortress' hatred for the Norse Allfather suggests the same, although nobody really understands the Overlord's utterings. Except of course for the army of minions that follow each and every of the Fortress' commands.

bossgard portrait ines

Innes - The French Viking

Survivalist, beast tamer and master of the bow, Innes strikes swiftly and without remorse. Although she grew up alone, her days of solitude are behind her, finding companionship in her pet Fifi, the last remaining saber-toothed cat.

bossgard portrait jack

Jack - The Jackhammer

Initially an oversized mining tool, this malevolent warmachine was adapted to serve as a weapon in the wars stirred by Freyja.

bossgard portrait krampus

Krampus - The Celestial Viking

Not much is known about Krampus other than the day he fell from the sky in the form of a blue nugget. Years have passed and Krampus grew up to be a great warrior in spite of the fact that nobody understands a word of what he's saying. He's insanely handy with the Greataxe.

bossgard portrait magnus

Magnus - The Danish Viking

The embodiment of Vikingness itself, Magnus is a born leader. His age, wisdom and experience serve as guidance to his fellow Norsemen, while his skill with the twin greatswords serves as inspiration.

bossgard portrait miko

Miko - The Japanese Viking

A wayfarer and a woman of culture as well, Miko is best described as reserved, careful and downright deadly with the repeating crossbow, acquired during her travels through China.

bossgard portrait olaf

Olaf of Bread - The Cyclopean Slice of Toast

Few have managed to stare Olaf straight in the eye and remain unflattened. A professional dealer of pain, Olaf excels in both cunning and might, stopping at nothing from bringing his foes crumbling down. He has a hatred for anything non-starchy, especially for Idun's healthy, rejuvenating apples.

bossgard portrait plunge d

Plunge D - The Purveyor of Stench

A foul anomaly caused by Thor. Plunge D. used to be the Norse God’s weapon of choice against the Giants, long before Mjolnir was crafted. Thor discarded the plunger after receiving his new hammer. The now-abandoned plunger grew jealous and swore to prove its might so that one day Thor may choose it over Mjolnir.

We hope you'll enjoy them. Feel free to use them as your game avatars or social media profile pics if you wish.
