Viking Squad is Like Castle Crashers With Beards


If you played Castle Crashers and thought the only thing that could make the game any better was the addition of beards, indie developer Slick Entertainment has just the game for you.

Introducing the scruffy, bearded brawler action of Viking Squad, a lane-based beat-’em-up about a raid party of four uniquely talented Vikings sent on a mission to explore a procedurally generated world and pillage neighboring villages for loot and treasure.


4-player co-op. Lite roguelike elements. Lovely 2D artwork. Character progression and gear upgrades. Check, check, check, and double check!

Viking Squad is rampaging toward a 2015 launch on PC/Mac and PlayStation 4.
