Son of Valhalla combines 2D side-scrolling combat with a home building system, a gameplay that will be familiar to you if you've experienced Kingdoms.

The game features a pixelated graphic style with multiple layers of depth of field to create stunning gameplay backgrounds, including terrain, buildings, weather, and nature.


The story is set in the Viking Age, players will play the role of Thorald Olafson who experienced a catastrophe of burned home and snatched lover. In order to get back the lover and take revenge, players have to travel to England to search and track down the enemy. During this time, it is very difficult to win alone. Players need gradually to build and reinforce strongholds to generate resources, as well as form their own army in order to solve the problem!

The protagonist’s fight force is very crucial in the process. What’s more, proper raiding, dodging and props using, as well as switching weapons and equipment will have a substantial impact on the battlefield.

At the same time, it's also important to recruit a wide variety of troops to fight alongside you, from basic swordsmen and archers to better-armed and armored samurai. Success in battle comes from using the right troops in the right situations. For example, facing a shield wall, spear troopers or long-range archers would be good choices.

Besides, Sons of Valhalla allows players a high degree of freedom to build and explore almost anywhere. You can choose to venture out into the wilderness alone, searching for treasure and harassing enemies. At the same time, it's possible to find a friendly village and negotiate to make it your own. For those who like 2D side-scrolling combat, base building and pixelated graphics, try it out in early April.
