The Banner Saga Summary
Stoic Studio has released another brief slice of gameplay footage from The Banner Saga 2, the sequel to 2013's gorgeously animated, in which you led a tribe of cartoon Vikings across an unforgiving wilderness.
That theme looks likely to continue in the follow-up, with a slightly more nautical twist; the teaser video shows a fleet of longboats leading downriver towards a colossal waterfall, formed by the earth itself breaking away.
The Banner Sagaback in January, 2014, a visually astonishing blend of animated Norse storytelling and turn-based tactical combat. Now the game's lead director is working on a new title.
Killers and Thieves has the player running a thieves guild, hiring burglars and bandits to do their dirty work, upgrading their base of operations, and planning elaborate heists. Like Banner Saga, it makes use of some beautiful 2D, hand-drawn visuals, but this time they're inspired by the work of comic artist
This summer indie publisherwill be bringing the post-apocalyptic roguelike RPG Bedlam to PC, from developer Skyshine Games, who has been working with Stoic's Banner Saga engine.
We'll lead a "motley crew of humans, mutants, robots, and cyborgs" across a wasteland fighting off marauders and other terrors as we pilot the last remaining colossal Dozer, the Boneshaker.
World of Tanks and The Banner Saga "filtered out" by Paradox Interactive, "not always our money to make"
If you ask whetherwould have liked to have published MMO World of Tanks and surprise hit The Banner Saga, then surely they'd jump at the chance? Not so, reveals VP of acquisition, Shams Jorjani.
Paradox actually had the opportunity to sign them but didn't "due to them not matching our pillars," they explained. CEO Fred Wester adds they "weren't sure about the business model" for World of Tanks.
Turn-based strategy RPG The Banner Saga is set to continue as a teasing announcement trailer from developer Stoic Games has surfaced. There's no release date attached though - it's just 'out there'.
The Nordic-themed series wields tactics and consequence in equal measure, where words can be more dangerous than sword and shield. The new trailer looks as icy and unforgiving as the first.
