About Trial by Viking
Trial by Viking is a deep action-packed single player adventure through the dark worlds of the Norse gods. As an agent of Odin, players will explore cavernous dungeons hunting for treasure, race for their lives from surprise traps, encounter tricky puzzles, and have vicious axe battles with blood-thirsty kobolds. Luckily they will gain valuable skills and earn powerful equipment like bombs and a trusty grappling hook to help them along the way.
Trial by Viking combines elements from action and puzzle platformers, as well as Metroidvanias. The game contains 130 hand crafted levels, 27 boss battles, and features narrative decisions that decide which of two final bosses you face. Trial by Viking was recently a winner of the Taco Bell Indie Game Garage contest, as well as nominated for Best Desktop Game at the 2016 Game Connection Development Awards. An XBox One digital version has also been announced for later this year.
