Launch Trailer Shows the Nightlife of the Afterlife as Magnus Jones Battles to the Beat
SANTA MONICA, Calif - Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014 - OUYA and Airtight Games today announced that Soul Fjord is now available exclusively on OUYA. In Soul Fjord, Magnus Jones must bust moves and bad guys on his way up the tree of life in a quest to reach Valhalla, the underworld’s hottest club, and save us all from Ragnarok. The game is now available on OUYA for free with in-game purchases.
A rhythm-based roguelike game, Soul Fjord fuses two distinctly different types of games, as well as two different themes. Portal lead designer Kim Swift and the team at Airtight Games have created an experience where gamers have one life to fight through a number of dungeons on their way up Yggdrasil, the tree of life, timing their attacks and combos with the rhythm of the game’s music. Austin Wintory, an award-winning composer who has scored games like Journey, Monaco, and The Banner Saga, created a musical style that blends funky fresh sounds and Viking tradition.
