Viking Ghost is still alive!
Viking Ghost has been Greenlit by YOU! Thanks so much for your support!!
( To view higher quality trailer - please visit: )

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. Along the way you'll be collecting experience points and treasure which you can use to buy items and upgrade your abilities.

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!

Features at a glance:

▪ Fast paced brutal combat
▪ Procedurally generated dungeon layouts
▪ High quality visuals
▪ Multiple weapons, abilities, and items to help you on your quest.
▪ Earn XP and coins to upgrade your player attributes & buy items
▪ A comical story driven epic quest for revenge
▪ Two Difficulty modes: Normal & Extreme Metal Makeover Edition (Perma-Death)
▪ Three Game modes: Story, Endless, and Horde
▪ Two camera angles to choose from: Dynamic and Classic (Top down)
▪ Light environmental puzzle solving
▪ Rage and Spirit mode for devastating attacks
▪ Boss battles!

Hello IceFrost and monthofmacbre - Sorry for the lack of updates - the game IS still being developed. We've hit some major set backs with regards to team changes, personal life struggles and the always fun lack of funds!

We're doing what we can to make sure this game does get finished though. Thanks for your interest and we'll keep y'all posted!
