First Release candidate
Description
Release date: October 2014
Playing History is a whole new (fun and engaging) way to learning history.
Navigating Erik in his journey from cradle, youth and eventual grave; you experience his journey towards becoming a true Viking within an interactive environment. It is times of change as the old beliefs are challenged by a new God and trade routes mean contact with people from strange lands. The game focuses on civilized trading as well as the faith and brutality of the viking era; a time when Christianity arrived in the North and became the dominant faith.

You cannot change history, but you can make a difference by becoming chieftain; Will you take your rightful place - or will you fade into the abyss of history?

Game play
'Playing History: Vikings' is a casual learning adventure game where the narrative unfolds as you make decisions, complete quests, master fighting and get the good trade deals.

Navigating Erik you will have to:
  • Make the right decisions and talk to the right people.
  • Fight off enemies trying to take over your land.
  • Collect secret coins for extra loot.
  • Collect gold by spotting historical anachronisms.
Also you may acquire the favor of the gods to help you and Erik’s journey

Playing History
‘Vikings’, the newest chapter of the Playing History educational game series, is currently in the making. The previous two titles in the 'Playing History-Series' have been rewarded with several awards. Now, by releasing 'Playing History: Vikings' we are ready to kick it up several notches by providing a fully realized 3 dimensional world to interact with, a deeper and more engaging game experience as well as more ambitious mini-games.

Playing ‘Vikings’ you are able to experience the world of the Vikings first hand, and through interactions learn about significant historical events of the Vikings’ era. We believe this game can revolutionize history teaching - but we need your help to do so - using Kickstarter you can help raising the funds needed to finish this project.

Thanks to all our supporters - and to everyone taking their time to comment :)

Thanks - we spend quite a lot of time, and went full 3D, so it definitely closes some of the gaps :-)

Well this looks much more interesting than the second, and the graphics look more polished too, I'll vote out of curiosity.
