History

Pitch

Valhalla Olympics is a norse-themed partygame which challenges your reactions, understanding, and adaptability. Challenge your friends in various minigames with godly twists, to gain the favor of the gods while battling through a colorful, cheerful, and magical viking universe.

Swing, aim, steer, and chug your smartphone as the game controller to beat out your friends in classical viking disciplines such as sword fighting, precision shooting, ship racing, and mead drinking.

Can you conquer the threat of the giants?
Can you find your way inside Jörmungandr?
Will you drink the poisoned mead?

No matter what, you should not let your friends reach Valhalla before you!

Gameplay

The game is played on a computer, but controlled by the players’ smartphones. You choose one of three categories and play either with or against your friends in different minigames. The games are easy to grasp and feel intuitive once you get the hang of them.

In the sword game, you either swing your phone as a sword to cut down giants or assume the defensive stance to block incoming projectiles with it.
In the shooting game, the phone takes the role of a blowgun. You put it to your mouth, point, and blow to make darts fly towards your enemies.
In the ship game, you are captain of your own one-man ship, where you race your friends and wreck havoc upon them with godly weapons of mead-destruction.
