Trial by Viking is a deep single-player action platformer with Metroidvania-like elements. As an agent of Odin, you will travel through the dark worlds of the Norse gods, explore cavernous dungeons hunting for treasure, race for your life from surprise traps, encounter tricky puzzles, and have vicious axe battles with blood-thirsty kobolds.

Post news RSS Trial by Viking Will Be At GDC Play This Year!

Anyone going to the GDC in San Francisco this year will be among the first to have a chance to play Last Life Games’ newest title, Trial by Viking, in the GDC’s new GDC Play section.

Posted by on

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.

If I was going to GDC this would surely be on my list to check out! Also - I don't think I have seen the word "kobolds" in print since I played D&D 34 years ago! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
