Norse Mythology and 70’s Funk Come Together For Ouya Exclusive, Soul Fjord

on January 28, 2014 12:16 PM

I didn’t think I’d ever live long enough to see a viking-funk crossover, but now I have the honor and pleasure to report on it, with Kim Swift and Airtight Games’ Ouya-exclusive rhythm-based rouge-like action game, Soul Fjord.

Playing as Magnus Jones, the “Champion of Funk,” players will take on a slew of monsters in Valhalla, the hottest club in the afterlife, for revenge — for who or what, who knows. But with famous Portal lead designer Kim Swift and award-winning composer Austin Wintory (Journey, Monaco and The Banner Saga) behind the game, it may be worth checking out.

The game is available for free right now (with in-game purchases) for those of you who own the Ouya. For a closer look at the game, check out the trailer and screenshots below; for a look behind the scenes, check out the Music developer diary below.

Born and raised in video games and "geek culture," Masoud has been bred off of fantasy worlds his entire life and doesn't see anything wrong with that. He loves RPGs (especially TRPGs), sandbox games, the sci-fi genre, dieselpunk, art deco, and anything that allows him to create. Having graduated from John Jay College with a degree in English and a minor in Creative Writing, Masoud hopes to one day pen the same novels, comics, movies, and video games he enjoys escaping into when the real world gets too boring.
