Your home is under attack. Viking invaders have killed the king. The hope is fading quickly, like a faint glimmer in the fog. It will be up to you to defend your position as the ruler of your father’s kingdom. This is not a fight for victory, but for survival.
Bad North is a brutal, but charming, real-time tactics roguelite. As you lead the desperate exodus, defend your idyllic island kingdom from Viking invaders. Your loyal subjects will be able to make tactical use of each island’s unique features. All is at stake.
It’s charmingly brutal, with beautiful procedurally-generated islands and adorable soldiers juxtaposed against the blood-stained realities of war. The battle is controlled by you, who give high-level commands and orders to your soldiers. They try to execute these commands in the heat of each moment. It’s easy to understand, and simple inputs from players mask a dynamic combat simulation. This makes it appealing to both new and experienced players as well as challenging veterans.
Keep fighting, warriors. You are not fighting for power, riches, glory or fame. Instead, you are fighting for peace in the Bad North’s harsh lands.
