Forced out of the only place you’ve called home, you escape in a rickety boat to an unknown isle while a voracious horde of Vikings nip at your heels. If they catch you, your reign—and life—will cease. Every new place you escape to only offers temporary solace as wave upon wave of Nordic marauders crash upon your shores. Fend off hordes of Vikings, then flee to the next island, and continue on until you can find a place to call home.
Welcome to Bad North, a minimalist real-time tactics roguelite where you must stand your ground against the multitudes of Vikings who want to see your head on the receiving end of their axes. Command troops to defend your land, develop them into different classes each with their own unique skills, and equip hero units with items that grant special abilities. Sail from island to island in a procedurally generated campaign and fight your way to victory in a game that is deceptively simple to pick up but with plenty of depth for strategy veterans.
Bad North is developed by Plausible Concept, published by Raw Fury and is out now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at $14.99 / €14.99 / £11.99.
