Crest - A god game where you're the father, not the dictator [Cross Promo]
Description
Release date: Q1 2015
Summary

Northward is a co-operative management game set in an atmospheric Nordic landscape. With influences from games such as The Settlers, Transport Tycoon and Banished, you manage and expand your settlement together with a friend as you gather resources and build defenses while steadily making your way towards the mountains in the north. With Northward we want to create a co-op experience that we feel is missing on the market. Management games are often a very solitary experience and we want to change that! Planning your next move, optimizing your shared resources and having to handle catastrophic events is something we believe is a lot more fun when shared with a friend.

Pre-alpha demo

With the pre-alpha demo we want to let you get your hands on the game right away and experience the basics of the gameplay by playing through a short scenario. Keep in mind that the gameplay in the pre-alpha won't mirror the final version of Northward, as the current system is a bit rough around the edges and a few core features have yet to be implemented into the game. There will definitely be bugs and issues in the pre-alpha that won't remain at the time of release. Also note that the demo is for one player only while the full game will be for two players.

Features

  • Experience the online co-op campaign together with a friend.
  • Gather resources to expand your settlement.
  • Cast spells and explore the vast Nordic landscape with your village elder.
  • Defend your settlement against beings lurking in the fog.
  • Connect multiple industrial centers with transport routes.
  • Sacrifice to gain the boon of the ancient ones.
  • Journey across Nordic landscapes as you unravel the secrets of the world.

After finishing our last game, Oknytt, we wanted to create something other than another single player game, a more social experience with players interacting with one another. That is how the idea for Northward came into existence. Multiplayer games bring another layer of fun that we want to explore with this project as well as a new take on the beautiful Nordic landscape that surrounds us.

FAQ:

Will Northward get translated into any other language than English?

- No translations are planned as of now but there might be in the future.

Will the game be available for Mac and Linux?

- The demo is currently running on Windows, Mac OS and Linux but we'll have to look into it further before we can confirm it for the full game.
