Die For Valhalla is Like Castle Crashers With Viking Possession

Indie studio Monster Couch is bringing the fun and funny with its debut production Die For Valhalla, an arcade beat-em-up in which you get to play as a ghostly Valkyrie capable of taking possession of Vikings–dead or alive–to aid them in their fight to save their world and achieve maximum glory. When one Viking dies, just approach a tombstone to summon another one from Valhalla to rejoin the hack-and-slash havoc.

Monster Couch has opened a small Kickstarter campaign, asking for a minimum funding goal of just $5,600 to help complete the game for its targeted springtime release on PC/Mac/Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One (with future dreams for a Nintendo Switch version). Die For Valhalla‘s also currently seeking to secure a Steam launch with an active Greenlight campaign.

Inspired by Castle Crashers as well as classics like Diablo 2 and Golden Axe, Die For Valhalla appears to offer a healthy dose of challenging rogue-like brawling with a charming sense of humor, cute yet violent art, and an epic soundtrack that’ll make the beard hair on your chinny-chin-chin–or other parts of your body–tingle with excitement. Designed for solo play as well as single-screen co-op for up to four players, the final game will include a full story mode as well as death match. Plus, if a $7,000 stretch goal is met, there will be a Last Valkyrie Standing wave survival mode.
