Join Leif Erikson, the intrepid explorer and help guide him and his crew to the fabled lands which would one day become known as Vinland. Hand-sculpted levels provide a dramatic backdrop to his voyage of discovery, delving ever deeper into the dangers of the unknown, fighting enemies both natural and mystical. To aid in this, there are a variety of weapons and navigators that can be collected during the journey, which allow the player to customise their vessel. The challenges to be faced during this expedition, range from battling through storms and blizzards, to defeating a witch and sneaking past the spirits of the dead. Then there is the ever present threat of the ice, the frozen death which lurks ever present in the seas of the North Atlantic. If Leif is going to survive the trip to Vinland then he will have to master both these silent predators but also his own fears and doubts recounted in a dramatic series of dialogues throughout the game.

No, it is based on a book I am currently writing called "Vinland: Revelations" that tracks Leif's adventures in the New World.

Glad to hear it! I also love history, and while looking for an era to write about I was shocked that the Viking's didn't have more about them beside the usual raiding and pillaging tales. Their voyages of discovery were just so incredible it was a shame that there wasn't more literature devoted to their achievements, their journey to the mysterious Vinland in particular. Good luck with your book, I know all to well how it is to be an aspiring author!

Go for the eyes Boo, go for the eyes! Raaagh!
