Vikings Hnefatafl: Kings of the Darkish Age is an upcoming turn-based technique primarily based on the traditional Scandinavian board sport, hnefatafl.
For a very long time, I’ve wished to make a sport primarily based on vikings. Now, after the 2 earlier tasks The Finnish Warfare (https://boards.tigsource.com/index.php?matter=69704.0) and Sotidrokhima (https://boards.tigsource.com/index.php?matter=69847.0) have been completed and launched, I may lastly begin engaged on this concept.
The sport is already effectively underway, with primary gameplay all being carried out. A lot of the work now lies with audiovisuals, including maps, and playtesting – a lot of playtesting.
Vikings Hnefatafl is predicated on the viking board sport, however takes some liberties in gameplay. Simplified, the purpose of a hnefatafl match is to seize the enemy king with out shedding yours, taking part in on a (normally) 9×9 or 11×11 grid board. In Vikings Hnefatafl, some issues are added:
- various kinds of ‘items’ (items) which have their very own Power worth, indicating on what number of sides they should be surrounded to be captured
- terrain: completely different terrain varieties enhance or lower the Power of sure items (items)
The sport can have a small marketing campaign, detailing the Viking conquest of England, and Customized Battles for single participant and maybe two-players (hotseat) as effectively.
I am planning so as to add an enormous quantity of randomized map seeds for Customized video games, to have lots of replayability. The AI can have 3 issue ranges; straightforward to very laborious.
