Magnus Jones Brings the Funk and the Fight to Yggdrasil – Soul Fjord Now Available on OUYA

Launch Trailer Shows the Nightlife of the Afterlife as Magnus Jones Battles to the Beat

OUYA and Airtight Games today announced that Soul Fjord is now available exclusively on OUYA. In Soul Fjord, Magnus Jones must bust moves and bad guys on his way up the tree of life in a quest to reach Valhalla, the underworld’s hottest club, and save us all from Ragnarok. The game is now available on OUYA for free with in-game purchases.

A rhythm-based roguelike game, Soul Fjord fuses two distinctly different types of games, as well as two different themes. Portal lead designer Kim Swift and the team at Airtight Games have created an experience where gamers have one life to fight through a number of dungeons on their way up Yggdrasil, the tree of life, timing their attacks and combos with the rhythm of the game’s music. Austin Wintory, an award-winning composer who has scored games like Journey,Monaco, and The Banner Saga, created a musical style that blends funky fresh sounds and Viking tradition. For more information on the music of Soul Fjord, check out a dev diary from Airtight and Austin Wintory here.

Team Elders launches The Conflict Room

2nd prize winner Global Game Jam Amsterdam

During this year’s Global Game Jam, Team ‘The Elders’ made The Conflict Room, a multiscreen local multiplayer strategy game. The project was made during the Global Game Jam in 48 hours at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.

The Conflict Room is now available for free and can be played here.

The Conflict Room is a local multiplayer strategy game in which players rule a country. Before the game starts each player receives a secret mission which needs to be completed in order to win.

In turns players need to allocate personnel to boost their military, agriculture or scientific capabilities. Each turn one country triggers an event on which the other players need to react. Two options are offered and the remaining 3 players need to vote how the event will be played out. Events can have an effect on a countries’ capabilities and are used to accomplish one’s secret mission.

The Conflict Room is played using one main screen (which all players can see) that displays each countries’ stats and events, plus four interface devices (this can be either a tablet or laptop). The easiest way to play is to hook up a host computer to a TV and to let the four players connect to that game.
