Explore a world of adventure in Vikings of Midgard
A demo comes into its own
Vikings of Midgard was created with the OHR RPG maker software; it was originally intended simply as a demo for the tool used to create it. Over more than a decade, however, the game was refined into its current, full-featured state. It features 10 playable heroes, each with their own unique story, personality, and abilities.
A world of mythology and horror
The plot and setting of Vikings of Midgard are derived from the sagas of medieval Scandinavia, featuring characters from Viking mythology. This isn't just a Viking story, however; other influences creep in, including some modern horror elements and a series of cameos by characters from related games.
A treat for retro RPG fans
Vikings of Midgard is a modern game created by a designer who clearly loves the classic RPGs of the 1990s. It features visually appealing sprites, a varied landscape to explore, and a wide range of different abilities and enemies. It's an ideal game for people who want the classic RPG experience but aren't interested in simply replaying older games.
Not an ideal first RPG
Although Vikings of Midgard is an enjoyable game, there are some features that may be frustrating to players who aren't as familiar with the genre. Some of the in-jokes won't make any sense to those not steeped in RPG culture, while the graphics, though charming, may look a little dated. On the other hand, hardcore RPG players may find the difficulty a little low.
