In general, people associate with Vikings - only battles and carnage. Historically, however, the Vikings were real allrounders: ingenious explorers, merchants, fighters and sailors. They understood, much better than any other people at that time the art of economics. From their trading centers in the Baltic Sea, Birka and Haithabu they sailed the seas and developed extensive trade routes from Russia to the Mediterranean.
The game considers all aspects of Vikingism in a fantastic and realistic 3D world - trade, economics, and combat to the degree that they may have been in the real life of a Viking.
Goal is to build a robust economic system with a flourishing maritime trade under realistic climatic and seasonal conditions. Only with the income of your island production and the reward of fullfilled tasks you’re able to fulfill the claims of your lord - Thorvaldson.
But apart from the harsh climate and other bad circumstances, the multitude of enemies are the biggest threat to your prosperity and your life. As a loyal swordsman of Thorvaldson, you will receive guard troops and can protect your village with massive weapons. Protection that you need to defend you properties and inhabitants.
Other information about the game:
The presentation of the figures, the calendar and the seasons, are largely based on historical traditions and geographical conditions. At the presentation of battle scenes, however, in order to increase the thrill, we have used a little bit of fantasy.
The in-game time of the game is divided so that 1 hour of real time means a day in-game. This results in a varied and long playing time in which you can do your daily work under realistic changing weather conditions and seasons.
we have update VikingJourney for the following shops:
In this update to version 1.5 we've concentrated on increasing the combat and battle system. Also we let enemies attacks occur more often and earlier.
Because we got some FAQs regarding the gameplay, we would like to address here some Tips&Tricks.
VikingJourney works a bit like 'Myst' and 'Riven' (you might know). Like in such games - valuable information is spread over the island, but in hidden places. You need to find it and to talk also to the bailiff and all other inhabitants. They all gave you information - some stupid, some important. Read carefully, because the information is a bit cryptic.
Newbies in VikingJourney playing the EASY-difficulty level, get many infos, tips and additional views, which helps to understand better the way the game works. All other difficulty level, does not contain such additional help.
At first you better concentrate on setting up your economy and other essential to survive - Build Production Buildings, start rawmaterial production, make sea trade and increase silver income. But be aware: nothing works automatically - you need to find the trick, to get it work.
Deadly traps are spread all over the island. Thorvaldson has implemented it years ago to make it difficult for enemies to overtake the island. But they are also dangerous for you. Avoid them .... later on you can ask the Shaman for a potion to make traps visible.
In the early stage of the game you're lacking the defending VillageGuards. The only one who can defeat the enemies - is you. But therefore you need your very first weapon - the pike. Find it early - its nearby the headquarter, but hidden.
When enemies are attacking you and the people, you need to secure your village people by stopping the current production of the building. That is only way to secure them. Well, of course you can rescue dead people later (with the Shaman's help) - but this is an expensive thing.
When you meet the requirements - Jarl Thorvaldson will offer (on his visits) you a fief. Only with a valid fief letter you will be able to build up a protective wall around your village and get the strong figthing village guards from Thorvaldson.
