Iviking: Ludum Dare edition

Posted on 24th September 2016 by PTSnoop in Games


The Longship! The pinnacle of naval technology throughout the Viking Age!

The trouble is, it’s ahead of its time. You’re not even supposed to have most of this technology for a few hundred years – and you’re the only one on board who knows how to use any of it.

On deck, you have a compass to point North, a small flag to show the wind direction, a helm to steer, a horn to replenish your boarding parties, a dramatic-looking axe to speed up and slow down, and some bizarre nautical equipment to raise and lower the sail.

Oh, and you’ve accidentally sailed into the middle of a raiding party, who are not happy to see you. Defeat the enemy ships, and try not to get killed. Good luck!

WASD or arrow keys to walk, mouse to look. Click repeatedly on things to perform actions.

The given theme this Ludum Dare was “Ancient Technology”. I’m not sure if the Vikings really count as properly “ancient”, but eeh, close enough. With thanks to my good friend Staircase27 for coding the enemy-ship physics/AI.
