OUYAns: Meet Soul Fjord! Yes, this is the game Kim Swift and team at Airtight Games have been working on *exclusively* for OUYA. And we’re stoked to be revealing some of the details for this upcoming game!
Please make sure to check out the trailer on our YouTube channel!
Soul Fjord is a randomly-generated dungeon crawler with rhythm-based combat set in a fantasy universe where the genres of 70’s Funk and Soul meld with Norse mythology – complete with lounge Dragons, Disco Wizards, and one badass Viking named Magnus Jones. In Soul Fjord, you play as Magnus Jones, a legendary warrior valiantly slain in battle. When the Valkyries arrive to bring him to Valhalla, the hottest club in Yggdrasil, they reveal that Magnus has been left off the guest list–and won’t be invited to Ragnarok, the party that’ll end the world. Magnus must fight his way up the World Tree to salvage his reputation as the baddest Viking in town, and gain access to Valhalla.
In addition to the trailer, check out these behind-the-scenes videos of Kim and team on their development experiences so far.
As a fan of Portal and Quantum Conundrum, personally, I was REALLY excited when I found out Kim Swift and Airtight Games were interested in building an exclusive OUYA game — a free-to-play experience for the living room (and the Soul music references also speak to my heart :) ). Fellow fans will recognize the personality and craft that’s become the Airtight Games experience. I’ve played some early builds so far, and I can’t wait to see what comes next!
As always, your DBF,
