Bad North Steam page now live, gets immediately attacked by angry Vikings

By Joe Robinson 30 Mar 2018 0

We’ve been keeping an eye on real-time tactics roguelite title Bad North for a while now. Pocket Tactic’s Nick Vigdahl spotted it first last year, and its been on his “oh-god-please-come-to-mobile” list since at least December.

Publisher Raw Fury have now published the official steam page for the game live. It lists a Summer 2018 release window for the PC version at least (we haven’t heard much about the other versions), and lists the key features as follows:

REAL-TIME TACTICS ROGUELITE: Position and relocate your troops to fend off the Vikings, who each have their own counters to the threats you pose. Pick your battles and plan your evacuations carefully! Lose a commander and they’re gone forever; lose everything, and it’s game over!

INTELLIGENT UNIT CONTROLS: You command the broad strokes of your defenses and monitor positioning — your soldiers do the rest, navigating and engaging intuitively in response to the situation at hand.

PROCEDURALLY-GENERATED ISLANDS: Each island is both stylistically charming and unique in its layout. Plan your strategies around every nook and cranny, for you only get one chance to save them from the enemy invasion.

UNLOCKABLE UPGRADES: A stronger, smarter defense leads to greater rewards. Use these to develop your subjects from a ragtag militia into seasoned warriors.

Yup, we’re still excited. We’ve just got to keep those pesky Vikings away until the game comes out.
