Kim Swift’s latest is an Ouya exclusive rhythm action dungeon crawler
Quantum Conundrum developer Airtight Games has revealed its new project, a frankly delightful sounding Ouya exclusive called Soul Fjord.
A randomly-generated dungeon crawler, Soul Fjord is set in a fantasy mash-up of 70′s funk and soul with Norse mythology “complete with lounge Dragons, Disco Wizards, and one badass Viking named Magnus Jones”. I know. I’m kind of crying a little bit, it’s so beautiful.
The players takes on the role of Magnus Jones. Slain in battle, Jones is waiting for the Valkyries to deliver him to Valhalla, the hottest club in Yggdrasil, when it becomes apparent that his name isn’t on the door. Magnus has to battle through the entire World Tree to restore his cred.
That’s about all we know so far, except that it’s headed exclusively to Android-based micro-console Ouya and will be free-to-play. But see below for a trailer and a behind-the-scenes video.
Airtight Games is led by Kim Swift, who’s probably pretty sick of being described as the creator of Portal, but there you go: she is.
