Zombie Vikings Coming to PS4

Zombie Vikings Coming to PS4

Hey, fellow berserkers! Allow me to introduce our new game Zombie Vikings on PS4. You may have played our latest game, Stick It to The Man!, which came out on PS4 and PS Vita earlier this year. Yep, it’s that insane game about mind-reading and the giant pink rubber arm.

Stick It was a big success for us at Zoink, and I just want to thank all PlayStation players for all the great feedback we’ve received from you. You make all the hard work so worth it, so THANK YOU!

Zombie Vikings

Zoink is an indie developer operating out of dark, cold Sweden, so making a quirky game about our crazy ancestors feels just right. We love games that can be played together. Friday night, pizza, a bunch of friends on a big comfy couch and a great game… being an old-school hack ‘n’ slash, Zombie Vikings fits the bill perfectly.

But we wouldn’t be Zoink if we didn’t surround the game with a stupendous and crazy story, lots of awesome voice actors, and tons of energy put into script and character design. We call it a “story brawler,” and don’t mind taking credit for inventing a new game genre. This time we’re working together with comic genious Zach Weinersmith, also known for Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal Comics.

Our saga starts out with Loki snatching Odin’s one remaining magic eye right out of its socket. With Odin blind as bat and the Gods of Valhalla too busy partying, Odin makes a desperate move: he summons four of the most fearsome zombie vikings out of the Norse soil: Gunnborg, Seagurd, Hedgy, and Caw-kaa! A putrid posse on a mission through the most epic of worlds to retrieve The Eye and make peace with their own rotten pasts.

The action-packed road to find Loki and The Eye will take you through some seriously strange worlds. Why not hack through the boiling gingerbread swamps of Molgaga? Or take a cruise through the intestines of the Midgaard Serpent? You will also discover the previous lives of the zombie vikings: was Caw-kaa really raised by crows? And why is there a squid living in Seagurd’s stomach?

Choose among four different zombie vikings, each with his own story and special moves. We’ve aimed at finding ways to play together and cooperate using lots of different moves, and at the same time use the fun in already being dead. Yes, being dead is actually a lot of fun! Getting your head chopped off in the game doesn’t mean you die.. instead your friends can use your vomiting head as a weapon.

And who can resist a good digital stab? Stabbing your friends is a key feature in Zombie Vikings! Stabbing means you can throw your zombie friends. Work together like true Scandinavians!

Zombie Vikings

We’re also working on a way to stitch all your zombies into one giant Mega-zombie, which you all have to control together… but more on that later!

As you can see, we’re having a ton of fun developing this game, and we hope you’ll love to play it.

  • Stick It to The Man! was an unexpected surprise. I loved every minute of it <3.

  • Looks good.

  • Looks like a blast!
    Any chance of it coming to the vita?

  • Oh my word does this look awesome :-)

    Huge fan of local co-op, brawlers, wacky stories, and of course, zombies. So count me in!

  • Stick it to the Man was amazing. Reading everyone’s mind was a blast and the entire thing was put together well. So naturally, this has my attention.

  • Hey guys! Happy you liked Stick It… We are hoping to one day have time to do a Vita version also. Awesome console.

  • When does this game come out?

    Next Week? Next Month?
    Spring 2015?
    Winter 2015?

    Leaving us clueless can leave a man in wonder.

    Please and Thank you for your time and hard work.

  • Also, why don’t you head over to http://www.zombie-vikings.com to check out the teaser trailer :)

  • Good opportunity to tell you guys that I enjoyed that wacky world you guys created in Stick It to the Man very much. Neat premise, and genuinely good humor, with fun mechanics. Thanks. I’m not really into multiplayer games, so maybe Zombie Vikings isn’t for me. Looks cool though.

  • Thanks! I think you will enjoy, it’s written in the same style of Stick It to The Man, but you can enjoy it with a friend. Or just play it one player.

  • @Klaus Lyngeled – A Vita version with co-op (adhoc or online) would be awesome. Make it happen.

  • Stick It To The Man was really fun and entertaining, despite some of the platforming/collision bugs. It was like playing one of the mini-series from Liquid Television in the early 1990s. Great voice acting (though maybe one of them got used for too many characters), and the art was top notch.

    The multi-player collaboration and and idea of the mega-zombie (sounds like two-player Octodad!) is really neat. I’m looking forward to videos that show/explain more!

  • Just checked out the teaser trailer, and it looks like a really fun game. Looking forward to it’s release.

  • Great! Stay tuned, we are planning to post Vines(you know those tiny videos) from different features in the game every wednesday.

  • I loved Stick It to the Man. Will keep an eye on this!

  • I loved Stick it to the Man, and bought it on day one.
    Sadly I wont buy this new game because this developer join the “skip ps3” policy encouraged by sony.
    Please dont start “we are small team, bla bla…”.

    If anything can sell on ps3 its those psn small digital titles, if game is done properly.
    I hope you guys reconsider and add ps3 version, ps3 customer base is still the largest by far.

  • Stick it to the man was fun! Will keep an eye on this one…

  • I loved Stick it to the Man. I have a PS4 but would love to see this on the Vita (not just remote play).

  • Any chance this would have online coop?

  • @19 there’s always share play, don’t know how good it’ll work for who you want to play it with, but it’s always there for you (unless you’re Call of Duty Advance Warfare)

    My biggest concern with this game is the hit detection. I loved Scott Pilgrim and didn’t care as much about Castle Crashers because the Castle Crashers characters felt flatter, so I felt like the game was trolling me to an extent. With the papery graphics in this game I worry about a papery thin hit box. I need enemies to feel like they have a bit of depth.

    Hopefully there’s a demo, cause really it’s all about feel. It’s gotta feel like you’re not missing even though you perceive you’re exactly where you need to be.

  • Looks awesome! Any chance of a Vita release?
