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.
