Dish Out Carnage of Hellish Proportions in Gunnheim, The Top-Down Shooter Where Vikings Have Guns
MONTREAL, October 16, 2015—Publisher, Meridian4, and developer, SIEIDI, today announced the Steam release of Gunnheim, a top-down shooter where the equation is simple: vikings + guns = mayhem.
The Lord of Death hits the bottle hard on the Ragnarok of all benders and hell breaks loose- literally. Enter the unholy children of Gunnheim: gun-toting, skull-crushing Viking warriors born and bred for battle, summoned to restore the balance. Gunnheim is a 1-4 player top down shooter inspired by Viking mythology and the golden era of couch co-op gaming.
In Gunnheim, you’re bringing the term berserker to a whole new level, saving the day by dishing out carnage of hellish proportions. Armed to the teeth with all manner of modern weaponry, fight your way through hordes of hellspawn with your brothers and sisters at your side, survive epic boss fights against the biggest and baddest of the devil’s children, and watch with maniacal glee as your enemies are turned to bloody piles of pulp, fangs and horns. Put your goggles on, it’s about to get really, really messy.
With a cutting sense of humor, Gunnheim brings fast paced action, superior low-poly graphics, and more gore than you can imagine to this classic genre.
“We grew up playing couch co-op games and hotseat multiplayer titles,” said Petri Pekkarinen, CEO of SIEIDI, “Gunnheim is our PC debut, and from the very first prototype we wanted it to feel and look original. We love that the gameplay works for both casual Friday night gamers as well as hardcore achievement hunters.”
“It’s clear from the positive response we’ve seen in Early Access, that Gunnheim is a game that the Steam community wants,” said Andy Sher, CEO of Meridian4. “We’re thrilled to help bring this game to full release.”
Gunnheim is available now in Early Access on Steam for $9.99. The full release will be available on October 16th and will be 35% off through October 30th. For the latest Gunnheim news, follow the game on Facebook and Twitter.
