Freja And The False Prophecy is a 2D action platforming adventure that draws inspiration from Norse mythology as you traverse the Nine Realms of Yggdrasil in search of redemption.
In Freja And The False Prophecy you take control of Freja, a formidable but fallible viking warrior who returns from a raid to discover an incurable disease has infected her land and the gods may have something to do with it. You must now make your way through the Nine Realms of Yggdrasil to uncover the truth about what’s going on.
The current Kickstarter demo build of Freja And The False Prophecy features around 15 minutes of gameplay and contains a nice variety of open world exploration, platforming and combat. Along the way you discover three special abilities (healing, sight and lighting), which aid our progress and help in a final boss battle.
It’s still early in development but Freja And The False Prophecy already impresses with its high quality artwork, interesting game world and responsive controls. The combat feels like it could be a bit more fluid and involved, but hopefully that’s addressed via an in-game upgrade system as you progress (such as unlockable attacks and combos). A very promising start for this stylish Norse action platforming adventure.
