As you may have read in our review, we’re fans of hardcore indie sidescroller Volgarr the Viking. It’s vicious, old school and perhaps more importantly stars a fucking viking. With a horned helmet and everything.
Not for the faint of heart, Volgarr will put your fingers through their paces with an bloody campaign that’s as challenging as one would hope from a studio that wants to bring back that coin-operated arcade feel. The odds will be stacked against you, you’ll die countless times, but you’ll keep wanting to come back – there’s something between the mystery of the hidden items and the rush of reward from beating a boss that just can’t keep us away from it.
Anyway, enough babble: Volgarr the Viking is 50% off on Steam for the next 48 hours, down to a much more palatable $5.99, or £4.99. Rise, warrior!
