Northgard for PC is a real-time strategy taking place in a fantasy universe inspired by Nordic mythology. The game was developed by Shiro Games, an independent studio previously known for Evoland, an original series of action-adventure games.

Plot

The plot of the game tells a story about a group of wiking explorers, who after years of tedious journeys discover a mysterious, resource-rich land called Northgard. The most courageous of the sailors quickly decided to explore it, wanting to bring fame and glory to their gods and clans, and become a part of history. However, before they can return to their homes, the group will have to face the numerous dangers awaiting them in the new world.

Mechanics

Northgard’s gameplay was inspired by classic real-time strategy games series such as Age of Empires, Age of Mythology, or The Settlers. The developers didn’t limit themselves to replaying typical genre staples like resource gathering, settlement expansion, and group on group combat. As the action of the game takes place in far north, Shiro Games decided to introduce survival elements: one of our objectives is to care for our clan’s safety and survival during long and frosty winters. The list of our enemies is also more in a shape of a fantasy game: bloodthirsty wolves, undead warriors, and a wide range of mythical creatures, including mighty giants with whom we can become friendly with, or if this doesn’t work out, proceed with the only proper solution – combat.

Technical Aspects

Northgard is complemented by detailed 3D graphics with a light comic-book design, and employs an isometric camera. Certain design choices and the game’s light-heartness may evoke the latest installments of The Settlers series.
