Stoic is an independant game developer and Versus Evil an independant game publisher. It’s not easy being an indie these days but The Saga Banner is out today and there is very sign it’ll be a hit for them.
The game funded on Kickstarter and is a finalist for Excellence in Visual Arts at the Independent Games Festival. The single player game is a Viking RPG in which travel, conversation and combat determines the outcome of their own storyline and their civilization as a whole. It’s a 2D game with tactical combat.
The Banner Saga is available for PC and Mac and via Steam, UPlay, Gamers Gate and I’ve noticed that Gamefly have it on offer at only £15.19. I’m tempted!
