Die With Glory is a beautifully animated non-linear 2D action adventure in which you play an old Viking who goes searching for an opponent who can kill him in battle – so he can die with glory and ascend to Valhalla.
In Die With Glory you control Sigurd, a very old Viking who is very skilled in the art of combat. In fact it seems he’s a little too skilled in the art of combat as he’s never been defeated in battle and lived to a ripe old age. While this may not seem like a problem to most of us, it’s terrible fate for Sigurd as every Viking knows that the only way to ascend to Valhalla is to die in battle. It’s now up to you to find a suitable opponent who will kill Sigurd before he dies of natural causes and is sent to Hel (Viking Hell).
The core gameplay in Die With Glory is simple, but packed with variety, with you laying siege to castles, surfing over lava, raising an army of the dead, falling in love, climbing a giant monster, investigating a murder, traveling through time, participating in a battle between two flying galleons and meeting a vegetarian time travelling dragon. Needless to say Die With Glory may not be 100% historically accurate, but it certainly sounds like a hell of a lot of fun!
As well as a thoroughly ridiculous narrative, Die With Glory also promises beautifully animated visuals and a great sense of humor, packed full of in-jokes that draw from popular games, movies and literature.
