Lost Viking: Kingdom of Women sounds like one of those C-list movies made on a budget with failed or struggling actors. It's almost funny to see that the trailer for the upcoming game looks like it may have that lack of funds behind it - however, that's not true. The actual perspective is that this cozy survival adventure is like that to be accessible to all, backed by a more exciting concept.
Most Viking games will put in the role of being the brutal heroes that can survive any fight. In Lost Viking: Kingdom of Women, you're struck down against an unexpected foe ending up stranded on an island. The survival genre is getting pretty blase these days. But will this odd theme build some exciting gameplay?
Welcome to the Jungle
We've still not been treated to any playable demos yet, but there are enough media out to gauge who Lost Viking: Kingdom of women will pan out. Yes, it looks like it will be another open-world survival game with that traditional set of mechanics. Gather, craft, build, upgrade, and everything in between to ensure the survival of your clan.
However, Lost Viking: Kingdom of Women is much more narrative-based. It leads to the idea the survival gameplay will have an end goal rather than the open-ended worlds we're all used to. That appears to be confirmed by screenshots of more story-based puzzles and objectives that require you to manage resources efficiently - not just for your base to thrive.
The graphical approach is a bit more unique about Lost Viking: Kingdom of Women. Characters and environments use elementary models to shape the world, but the rich color palette ensures that it's still immersive. Perhaps the game will be more casual than the narrative gives off - but that's still something we have yet to discover.
The 'Kingdom of Women' part is still relatively unknown. We've been told that women will play a pivotal role in this land the Vikings have washed upon, but it's all shrouded in mystery. What secrets will you uncover as you guide your Norse heroes to save the families taken in by those rogue wanderers? We'll have to wait for a release date and see.
Odin is a Woman
From what we've gathered, Lost Viking: Kingdom of Women is a mish-mash between Valheim and Albion Online, only with narrative-driven objectives rather than open-ended. This time, you're working towards a means to an end rather than playing to be the best Viking you possibly can be. Honestly, it's a refreshing injection into the survival genre.
You feel that the game will be pretty condensed and not as open-world as first glimpses suggest. But if it's packed with entertainment, intriguing survival mechanics, and an engaging storyline, that would work for everyone. We look forward to learning a little more about Lost Viking: Kingdom of Women - a seemingly good game for all.
