Teen

Your home is under attack. The king is dead at the
hands of Viking invaders. Hope is a distant glimmer in
the fog, fading fast with every passing moment. As you
rise to take your father’s place as ruler, it will fall to you
to stage your defenses. But make no mistake – this is
no fight for victory, but a desperate grasp for survival.

Bad North is a charming but brutal real-time tactics
roguelite. Defend your idyllic island kingdom against a
horde of Viking invaders, as you lead the desperate
exodus of your people. Command your loyal subjects to
take full tactical advantage of the unique shape of each
island. Everything is at stake: fail, and watch the blood
of your subjects stain the ground red.

It’s charmingly brutal, with beautiful procedurally-
generated islands and adorable soldiers juxtaposed
against the blood-stained realities of war. You control
the broad strokes of the battle, giving high level
commands to your soldiers who try their best to carry
them out in the heat of the moment. It’s accessibly
deep, with simple player inputs masking a dynamic
combat simulation that make it inviting to new players
while challenging veterans.
Keep fighting, warriors. Not for power or riches or glory,
but for hope of peace to come once again in the harsh
lands of the Bad North.

Key Features

REAL-TIME TACTICS ROGUELITE: Position and relocate
your troops to fend off the Vikings, who each have their
own counters to the threats you pose. Pick your battles
and plan your evacuations carefully! Lose a commander
and they’re gone forever; lose everything, and it’s game
over!

INTELLIGENT UNIT CONTROLS: You command the
broad strokes of your defenses and monitor positioning
— your soldiers do the rest, navigating and engaging
intuitively in response to the situation at hand.

PROCEDURALLY-GENERATED ISLANDS: Each island is
both stylistically charming and unique in its layout. Plan
your strategies around every nook and cranny, for you
only get one chance to save them from the enemy
invasion.

UNLOCKABLE UPGRADES: A stronger, smarter defense
leads to greater rewards. Use these to develop your
subjects from a ragtag militia into seasoned warriors.
