Volcanic Eruption in Thule

March 31, 2010

Gogogic paid tribute to the eruption in southern Iceland by including an erupting volcano on the game’s map. The inclusion of this graphic brings real-world news into the exciting online world of Thule. The eruption, which began in the Fimmvörðuhals region of Iceland on the night of Saturday, March 20th, has made headlines and attracted a steady stream of visitors. Players around the world can now share a small part of the excitement brought on by Iceland’s volcanic activity.

An update for Vikings of Thule today!

March 12, 2010

The last update brought many great changes, leading us to officially launch the game.  We have seen interest and activity in Vikings of Thule rise greatly over the past few weeks, and are very happy with the direction the game is headed.  Today brings another update to the game.  Features will include:

  • The first Special Items arrive in the marketplace!  Each item gives valuable rewards.  The more you collect the more benefits your Viking will see.
  • You are able to set a default option when posting game achievements to your profile.  If you click yes or no, the game will remember that as your default option.  You can change this default at any time.
  • We have taken the limit off of the number of trade slots each person can have.  You will now be able to purchase as many trade slots as you wish.  Please take note, the price per slot has slightly changed.
  • We have also fixed some of the bugs that have appeared since the last updates.  Most of the connection and loading problems have been fixed.  The battlefield has also been cleaned up so that fewer offline players will linger.

All of this is coming today!  If you would like to see what else is planned for the future of the game, or would like to make any suggestions, please visit our official forums at http://forum.gogogic.com

REYKJAVÍK, ICELAND – MARCH 2, 2010 – Gogogic announces the launch of Vikings of Thule, an innovative social MMORPG for Facebook.  Vikings of Thule offers Facebook gamers the opportunity to set sail for the promised land of Thule where they will be able to gain riches, earn respect, duel with others in live, animated battles and secure a place in the Althingi (pronounced All-Thing-Ee) where the top 39 players that rule the land hold a vote on its parliament and ultimately determine the evolution of the game.

In Vikings of Thule, gamers will unleash the devastating power of Thule’s mythical creatures, Wights, to join them in a fantasy Viking battle of legend.  The game features an in-game marketplace with many clothing items, weapons, armor and special items to develop your persona throughout your experience.  Players have the ability to show their Viking abilities via postings based on their in-game achievements.  The game is designed to make an extensive social gaming experience easily accessible to new players via an informative tutorial.  Along with the launch of Vikings of Thule, there will be official discussion forums where players will gather to share tips, leave feedback, and chat to form guilds, clans and communities.  With its Viking background and innovative player vs. player gameplay, Vikings of Thule is ready to provide a new Role Playing experience to Facebook users.  For more information online, please visit http://www.vikingsofthule.com or http://apps.facebook.com/vikingsofthule.
