Viking Ghost is the first game coming from Dead Alien Cult. You may never have heard of Dead Alien Cult, well, that’s because they’re a new indie development studio on the block. It’s made up of ex-God of War 3, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and Warhawk developers. Viking Ghost itself is touted as being a comical game with the most ridiculously long explanation for its genre: “Arcade Action Adventure-Dual Stick Shooter-Dungeon Crawler-Rogue-Like-Lite.” I think they should work on shortening that explanation down a notch or five. In the pre-alpha footage you can check out above, you may notice a similarity to Gauntlet. At least, it reminds me a hell of a lot about Gauntlet.
