Post PRE-ALPHA Trailer / Greenlight launch Update & other FAQs:
  • The game is currently in pre-alpha state. Many of the features, animation, and visuals are not complete or temporary.
  • The UI is temp and will be much nicer when final.
  • Some of the FX are also temp and will be nicer when final.
  • The enemy AI is also early and needs beefing up.
  • The game will definitely support gamepad support & keyboard controls.
  • There will be a lot more variety of enemies per locations (we just used what we had at the moment ;)
  • Viking Ghost will *defnitely* have a story line (Story mode) and will not just soley be about score / XP.

Well, that's it for now - I'm sure we'll be updating this from time to time - or just adding new announcements from time to time to keep y'all up to date on things. So keep posted and thanks again for all of your valuable feedback and support!

Description
( To view higher quality trailer - please visit: https://vimeo.com/88710872 )

Viking Ghost - the first game from indie developer Dead Alien Cult - is a comical, story driven "Arcade Action Adventure-Dual Stick Shooter-Dungeon Crawler-Rogue-Like-Lite" (that tastes great...and less filling!). The game features eight locations, each having procedurally generated layouts that are different on each playthrough. The main inspirations behind the gameplay come from classics like; The Legend of Zelda, Smash TV, Robotron - as well as more recent indie titles like The Binding of Isaac, and Spelunky.

In Viking Ghost you'll be using many different weapons and special abilities to fight your way through waves of enemies, as well as each level's Boss. In addition to combat, you'll be solving simple puzzles to advance through certain areas. Viking Ghost also features a light upgrade system, where you can spend experience points gained during battle at the end of each level, to further improve attributes like speed, attack, defense, etc. You'll also be able to spend coins on various items to help you along your way.

Without giving too much away about the story - In Viking Ghost you play as "Ulfrik The Skull Splitter" - the greatest warrior to have ever terrorized the land - on his quest for revenge against those who've caused him to die a most unceremonious death, trapping him in the form of a restless spirit!

I'll vote yes if the speed metal soundtrack comes with the game . . . oh, heck, I'll vote yes anyway, but I'll for sure buy it if it's got a speed metal soundtrack!
