Rough Guide to Combat Trailer

By |December 5th, 2013|

Our latest trailer is now live — The Rough Guide to Combat!

We have released a brand new tutorial that covers the basics someone new to the game needs to consider when preparing for battle and the tactics they need to think about while in the heat of combat.

It includes a useful overview of the hero stats a player should keep an eye on as well as a focus on how “willpower” can also be used strategically to boost various actions in combat to take out an enemy. Watch it to find out more.

The Travel Trailer

By |November 21st, 2013|

The travel strategy in The Banner Saga is a unique game-play element not seen in many other games.

Highlights of the trailer include a focus on how managing morale, supplies and population can greatly affect the player’s personal experience, as well as how they can directly impact each other.  It also touches on how to best use “Camp,” which is where a player can rest their caravan, organize their party and where a lot of decision making with regards to upgrading characters is made. We are leaving lots of options up to the players and it’s up to them to [...]

IGF Submission Complete

By |October 21st, 2013|

Hello everyone. Over the past months we have enjoyed a tremendous amount of progress toward completing the game. Several key milestones have marked some very satisfying leaps forward. Getting a build ready for the 2013 PAX Prime allowed us to showcase the first section of the game. If you haven’t seen it already, you can check it out in Alex Thomas’ “Let’s Play” video series.

To prepare for submitting a build to the IGF we focused on the first third of the game, taking the player past Skogr and all the way to Einartoft. The story returns to Vedrfell in the [...]

Let’s Play: The Banner Saga Part 4!

By |September 11th, 2013|

Ready to see the result of your decisions? Thanks for your patience! We’re still working on getting the website back on its feet, but we’re going to keep the demo going. After this I expect there will be one more video.

A quick report: we’re making ridiculous progress on the game. All the major cities in the game are done. We’ve got items up and working (many of which are submissions from backers), and we’re starting to get final music in as well. Austin will be doing a music update in the near future. At this point the majority of [...]

Let’s Play: The Banner Saga Part 3!

By |September 5th, 2013|

A short but important decision to make:

Plus some commentary! Not to worry, the next update should be a little meatier.

Also, want a much bigger and in-depth preview of The Banner Saga? Rock Paper Shotgun just posted a HUGE article about the 4 hours he played of the single player campaign.

Check it out here!

Let’s Play: The Banner Saga Part 2!

By |September 3rd, 2013|

Ladies and Gents,

We’ve gotten many, many people who would prefer to get lots of updates, so majority rule, here. To those of you who do not want to see new emails from us every day or two, I’ve been told you can filter that through Kickstarter.

Remember to vote! And please, any thoughts, comments, suggestions that come up- just talk to us like normal people. Be polite. Stuff like that.

Hope you enjoy!

Let’s Play: The Banner Saga

By |September 1st, 2013|

Hello backers! After a brief delay the first part of the PAX playthrough is ready to go! Keep in mind, this is all in-game and we’re still in beta so some effects, polish and optimizations are still in development. That said, we’re getting damn close!

At the end of the video we’ll need to make a choice. What would you do? Vote in the comments and we’ll continue on next time with the most popular decision, a day or two from now. As always, watching in HD is highly recommended…

A couple people asked that we not flood their inbox with a dozen [...]
