The Frostrune is an upcoming adventure game that we’ve been keeping an eye on for some time now. We talked about the game back in March and then got to check it out up close at GDC. Since then, the developers have been working hard at finishing the game, and recently they’ve started posting trailers that talk about the game’s lore and universe. There will be six of these trailers, and so far we got two, Rune Magic and The Warriors. Both trailers show off the game’s visuals and its world but also act as teaching material for those of us not familiar with Norse mythology and culture.
If you haven’t heard of The Frostrune in the past, it’s an adventure game set in the Viking age. You find yourself shipwrecked on an island after a storm, and the only settlement nearby appears to have been abandoned in a hurry. Never a good sign. The dark forest around the village is filled with rune stones and burial mounds, and you have to solve many puzzles to figure out the island’s mystery. If you like Viking history and mythology, make sure you check the game’s website because it’s filled with all kinds of interesting facts and stories about them. The game should be coming out soon, hopefully.
