That leaves almost three more weeks for backers. The pledges will be used to finish Volgarr the Viking's "content and art". The game is described as "hardcore arcade-style action".
The studio "aims to reignite the passion" for skill-based gaming with "tight controls, tough-but-fair game-play, and meticulous design." It uses a 16-bit visual aesthetic.
