Northland Linux has Gone Gold

January 24th, 2006 by Marv

We have recieved this press release about Northland from RuneSoft having gone gold.

Gamers on the Linux platform will soon be able to join Bjarni and his friends in their mission to save their homeland from mysterious serpent creatures, as Northland Linux has gone gold and should be available by February 2nd.

Northland tells the story of Bjarni the Viking.

The story begins where the plot of “Cultures 2 – The Gates of Asgard” ended. After perilous adventures our four heroes defeated the Midgard serpent and thus saved the world. A great celebration began and everyone was happy and content.

But only a very short time later the peace was disturbed by a call for help from their friend Hatschi. Hatschi’s homeland was plagued by mysterious monstrous serpent creatures, which spread chaos and destruction through the country. Without hesitation Bjarni and Crya hurried to help him and stumbled right into a new adventure, in which the sly god Loki will play an important role…

Northland features:
  • Stand-alone Adventure Strategy game.
  • Single player campaign with 8 missions including several sub missions.
  • The exciting plots tells the story of Viking God Loki who tried to take revenge on Godfather Odin for his banishment from Asgard to Earth. For that he abuses our four human heroes with his intrigues and traps.
  • 8 additional free single player missions (non campaign).
  • 3 difficulty levels to make the game fun for everybody from beginners to experts.
  • Special effects like weather effects, fog, ghost units etc.
  • Based on the enhanced technology of “Cultures 2 – The Gates of Asgard”; enhanced AI.

    They have lot of products that could interest me, like Knight and Merchants, Divine Divinity, Simon the Sorcerer 2…

    We should buy this one to get some stuffs from Rune Soft. If Northland is a success, we will receive more titles on our Linux platform.

    So : go buy Northland !

    Rune-Soft competes directly with LGP

    Is the Linux Game market big enough for 2 competitors ?

    I want the game available for all my platforms not just the one for which it was ported. Thats why UT is awesome. I can play it on linux or windows.

    I appreciate the effort on northland, but I dont use linux to accept LESS standards. I wont buy northlands without MP support because I dont settle for second best for linux.

    This is something that’s always bugged me about Linux game companies. They don’t release on schedule. Rune-soft’s website says this game will be available by February 2nd. It’s the 3rd now. Neither nor has it for sale. *sigh* Does anyone know when/if we’ll be able to actually play this game?
