Möther Fafnir! Zombie Vikings is part of Vote to Play! You know what that means, right? It’s time for us to charm your asses off!
If you don’t know about us, we’re Zoink, an indie studio from the west coast of Sweden. You might have heard about our previous title, Stick It to The Man. At Zoink, we usually end our weeks with our traditional Pizza Friday, and maybe that’s why we decided to create what we call a ‘pizza and beer game’.
For the last year and a half, 10 little Zoink devs has worked crazy-hard to create the awesome multiplayer story brawler that is Zombie Vikings. Because of this, you will soon be able to take a cruise through the intestines of the Midgaard Serpent and fight giant poultry in a 30 level stab-you-in-the-gut-athon, stuffed with 40 unlockable weapons. Quite neat (but at the same time icky), huh?
This is what we’re thinking: games are the most fun played together, and with that we don’t just mean having your characters appear on the same screen. Oh no. We’ve created a bunch of ways to interact with your friends! Like building a tower of Vikings, stitching yourselves together into one giant mega-zombie or picking each other up with a quick stab in the butt. Since you’re a zombie, the last one doesn’t hurt (at least we don’t think so).
If you’re still not convinced that voting for us is the best idea since ice cream stuffed with cookie dough, here are a couple of other reasons!
- Single player and online/offline multiplayer!
- Hilarious writing by Zach Wienersmith, author of SMBC!
- Collectable Viking Runes. Gain new cool abilities and mix up your style of play!
- Five versus arenas for the times when co-op just feels too nice!
So vöte för üs! If we win and get super famous and rich, we’ll invite you all over for a huge smorgasbord, complete with Swedish fermented herring and Dala horse decorations. So burst out from your grave, grab a can of lukewarm Berzerker™ and join the most epic hackfest of the first millennium!
