The Ghost Varl – Support Bedlam

The minute I saw the concept art and heard the gameplay pitch of Bedlam, I was anxious to be a part of it. It sounds and looks like just the kind of game I would enjoy playing. The idea of adapting our technology to the task is exciting as well, because it lets us get more use out of the immense effort we put into The Banner Saga, as well as improve the engine through refinement and collaboration. I want to go to Bedlam! Check out their Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/skyshinegames/bedlam .

We also got to make “The Ghost Varl” character for their game – check out the full color version at the link above!

The Banner Saga iOS Launch

Stoic, an independent game development company and Versus Evil, an indie game publisher, today announced that the epic Viking RPG strategy game, The Banner Saga, is now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The Banner Saga takes advantage of touch control capabilities of mobile devices to build an unforgettable touch screen journey.
The game, which received rave reviews and launched to much critical acclaim on PC earlier this year, has received several awards and nominations, including winner of the 2014 Geekie Awards for Best Video Game, finalist for Excellence in Visual Arts and two honorable mentions for Excellence in Design and Excellence in Audio at the 2014 Independent Game Festival.
“Since our earliest prototype, we designed The Banner Saga from the ground up with tablet and mobile devices in mind,” said John Watson, Technical Director at Stoic. “With its epic story-line, touch screen turn based strategic combat and hand painted landscapes that harken back to the golden age of animation, we are excited to now bring The Banner Saga to a whole new community of players.
