Developer of Owl Boy (opens in new tab) Their next game has been revealed, delightfully titled Vikings on Trampolines. You might guess there’s more to it than the name, and it does, but honestly, it’s clearly about the Vikings, bouncing around on trampolines. It’s a simple concept, and creators D-Pad Studio say it’s inherently accessible because the controls really only require one hand, but it’ll have single-player and co-op campaigns, multiplayer challenges, and a variety of miniatures game.
During the campaign, you’ll see you play as the “Bad Balloon,” presumably by bouncing and violently popping his followers, who are also balloons. Multiplayer battles range from simple-sounding (knocking other Vikings off a trampoline) to various stages that seem rather complicated, complete with powerups. There will also be the word “trampoline”, in which case I find the phrase to be both irritating and irritating, although no exact example is given in the trailer other than what looks like a football.
Vikings on the Trampoline doesn’t have a release date yet, but you can find it on Steam and its official website, Currently. We don’t expect them to be as laborious as making Owl Boy, which they say took nine years. Following on from The Squirrel with a Gun, the reveal of Vikings on the Trampoline made this a banner week for the niche genre “Games Are Just What Their Titles Say”.
