Stoic Studio, founded by ex Bioware employees started an adventure to develop a Viking themed RPG game. The Banner Saga is their first game and let me tell you something. You will love these Vikings and their not so friendly world. The first highly anticipated game of the year will have you tinkering and shouting at your heroes as you keep losing in combat. Combat is turn-based meaning you will have to wait for your heroes’ turn to move and attack.
