Swedish studio Zoink Games, best known for the hilarious adventure Stick it to the Man, have announced Zombie Vikings - a four player co-op hack n' slash featuring putrid vikings. The game will be self-published on Steam and PS4 (day one, more platforms to follow) and Zoink Games are teaming up with fellow self-publishing Gothenburg studio Image & Form (SteamWorld Dig) for help with marketing and PR.
"Our ancestors are probably spinning in their graves as we are turning the stupid-fun dial up to eleven," says Klaus Lyngeled, CEO of Sweden-based Zoink Games. "But we're having so much fun with this. We're putting an enormous amount of work into script, character design and voice acting."
The story has been penned by Zach Weinersmith, best known for Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal Comics.
"The first scene they had me write involved rescuing Odin's eye from a witch's ass," says Weinersmith. "And they're paying me for this. Life is good. It's so cool to get to work on a project like this. Zoink is working hard to take a quirky setting and give it real characters, and I'm excited to be a part of that. Awesome!"
Zombie Vikings is scheduled for release in July 2015 on Steam and PS4 and has been tentatively priced at €9.95/$11.99/£7.99.
