Vikings Hnefatafl: Kings of the Darkish Age is an upcoming turn-based technique based mostly on the traditional Scandinavian board recreation, hnefatafl.
For a very long time, I’ve wished to make a recreation based mostly on vikings. Now, after the 2 earlier initiatives The Finnish Struggle (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 might lastly begin engaged on this concept.
The sport is already properly underway, with fundamental gameplay all being carried out. A lot of the work now lies with audiovisuals, including maps, and playtesting – numerous playtesting.
Vikings Hnefatafl relies on the viking board recreation, however takes some liberties in gameplay. Simplified, the intention of a hnefatafl match is to seize the enemy king with out shedding yours, taking part in on a (often) 9×9 or 11×11 grid board. In Vikings Hnefatafl, some issues are added:
- several types of ‘items’ (items) which have their very own Energy worth, indicating on what number of sides they must be surrounded to be captured
- terrain: totally different terrain varieties enhance or lower the Energy of sure items (items)
The sport could have a small marketing campaign, detailing the Viking conquest of England, and Customized Battles for single participant and maybe two-players (hotseat) as properly.
I am planning so as to add an enormous quantity of randomized map seeds for Customized video games, to have numerous replayability. The AI could have 3 problem ranges; straightforward to very arduous.
