VOT_Odinn

The Open Beta session for Vikings of Thule has come to a close and today the game will be reset. We assembled a terrific test crew on Facebook and the time Beta testers spent playing, their feedback and enthusiasm are highly appreciated. All Beta testers’ comments and feature requests have been taken into account and the next time Beta testers log in, they are encouraged to have a look in their inventory, where a special item can be found as a token of our appreciation.

We’ve been working extremely hard to bring our players a great update. The new, rebalanced Beta version includes cool, new features, new assets, powerful moves and an improved social interaction. It also introduces ways to earn Silver Coins, which allow players to buy exquisite equipment, beautiful clothing and divine, limited edition items.

Everyone who donates (done by clicking the shiny yellow button at the top of the game screen) will be rewarded an in-game silver chest! Silver Chests ensure a steady income of Silver Coins and strengthen players’ chances of becoming one of the 39 who hold a vote at Thule’s parliament: Althingi.

Here’s a peek at our roadmap:

  • New Fascinating Game Modes
  • More Assets
  • More Moves
  • Improved battle system
  • Quests & Missions
  • Player alliances
  • Interactive tutorial
  • Wagers
  • In-game messages
  • + more

We’re really excited about the new and better Beta version awaiting players in the world of Thule. Click here to play.

Open Beta Launch for Vikings of Thule

September 15, 2009

HeaderBetaRelease

Welcome to the experiment
Launching an Open Beta for Vikings of Thule is not only a major milestone for us, it is also an experiment and a huge bet. We are actively asking you – the players who participate in our Beta program – to be our Quality Assurance team. The first days are guaranteed to be raw and rough, with buggy clients and unstable servers, but we are forging an agreement. You get to help us set the course, prioritize what comes next and decide on where we go from here. We promise to listen, update the client as often as necessary and do everything we can to build a benchmark when it comes to online social games.

How this works
On October 15 th 2009 we will reset the game and that will signal the end of the official Open Beta period. If everything goes according to plan that will be the only time we will intentionally reset the game. This reset is planned so we can use the Beta period to balance every aspect of the overall experience – even re-calculate values and parameters within the period. Up until the reset, we ask you to actively work with us to create the best experience possible. Of course, those of you who participate will have an advantage after the reset, as you already know how the game works and how it should be played.

· Use the Feedback Box at the top of the application site to send us your thoughts, comments and ideas.
· Use the Beta Testers Group forums for additional feedback and open communication with us/others.
· Everyone who creates a Viking avatar and sends us a comment during the Open Beta period will get a special item which will only be available for Beta Testers. This item will be available to avatars after the reset.
· 10 people who we feel gave us the most valuable feedback during the Open Beta Periodwill additionally get limited edition items which can be worn and used after the reset.
· The person who leads the game just before reset will also get a handful of Silver Coins which can be used to buy more expensive items after the reset.

Please Donate
As we see it, the Beta is only the beginning. It only includes a small portion of the world we want to create. There is so much more to explore. The world of Thule is set to expand and grow with time. The Vikings are coming.

If you want to help us realize this, please donate. The official release will include an item economy but until then, we are completely dependent on your goodwill and support.If you donate, you will receive special in-game jewelry that indicates your special support for the game.

Features & Roadmap
A detailed list of features will be posted to the Beta Testers Group. We will also publish a roadmap which outlines the features that we are currently working on or want to include in future releases. Please help us prioritize and add to that list.

Release (Facebook) : The Attack on Glowbuleville

January 19, 2009

Glowbuleville

A public Beta version of The Attack on Glowbuleville is now available on Facebook. We’re still tweaking it and turning a few screws but the game is both ready and stable.

  • Rating : All audiences
  • Difficulty : Hard
  • Total playing time : 70-140 minutes

This game is specifically designed for casual players that are looking for a challenge – people that want fast paced fun and a whole lot of action. So even if the basic game-play is easy to learn and the game mechanic overly familiar, the game itself will test your resilience and will.

So, do not let the cuteness og Glowbuleville fool you. Because it will test your nerves and your reflexes. Whack whack whack away so we can add more huts another day.

The game

You take on the role of a young hero, which has to save the overly cute village of Glowbuleville, from occupation by the evil Gorbs. You have to enter every hut, whack every Gorb and save innocent Glowbules that are held captive. You begin with a crummy twig but as you work your way up, you are able to pick up better whacking weapons and other things that will help you succeed.

Your profile is a very important aspect of the game. There, you can see what trophies you have earned, how your journey is going and where your skills need improvement. You can also view the profile of your friends and compare your success to theirs.
