    5:49 The Runes on the Logo reads: Paradox Development Studio(s) in English (phonetically...roughly). I don't know if that would interest any one though, lol. I just learned a couple different Futhark some years back because it's in a lot of games. And, I like to try to read Runic inscriptions when I find them. Sometimes it can be something of an Easter egg in games, like the whole "Sid was here" thing (More often than not though, it's complete gibberish...makes sense that it would actually be readable in this game).

    Huge fan of Age of Wonders Shadow Magic. So I love tactical combat and the Rp that is throughout. Since this vid didn't show the combat im wondering. Is it like the many Final Fantasy games and their "hop in and out" mechanic with a lame animation and numbers flying overhead of troops in a line? Ya I HATE Final Fantasy combat to my core!!!! Story and game might be epic. But ill never know since I cant get past that. Its just personal preference so don't waste time telling me im wrong. This looks epic however and I cant wait to see vids. I just hope its not eastern style hop in and out combat but more like Age of Wonders.

    i would of been more interested in this project because i love RPG games however TURN based is not my style. i like open worlds which i enjoy but Turn Base is not something i would consider with an open world game. I'll still keep my eye on it. EDIT : just to clarify i used to play TURN based RPG sense back then that is what you had. put times have change and new mechanics allow for new avenues.

    Ratatoskr is a squirrel who apparently likes to deliver insulting messages back and forth from the Great Eagle at the top of Yggdrasil to the dragon Nidhogg at the bottom. He also apparently enjoys gnawing at the tree itself.
    I can see this potentially being an interesting quest/quests...

    ... Viking is not a demonym for the Norse but the name of a profession. Also it's the female form for - as far as i know - a raider.
    The male form is " víkingr"
    Please stop using it wrong.

    OK Americans you need to start getting this right, Loki and Thor are NOT FREAKING brother or half brothers if any thing Loki is Thor's onkel. Odin and Loki are blood brothers nothing more. Loki is a half giant half "god" but they have nothing to do with Odin

    One of the few games this year which I have high expectations for. I'm a fan of Paradox's work and I love Norse mythology.
    Also the soundtrack is fantastic. Reminds me of Crusader Kings II's soundtrack. Props to Andreas Waldetoft for his amazing work.

  • TrueGreg

    In Norse mythology, Ratatoskr is a squirrel who runs up and down the world tree Yggdrasil to carry messages between the eagle Hræsvelgr, perched atop Yggdrasil, and the wyrm Níðhöggr, who dwells beneath one of the three roots of the tree.

    thesilverw0lf 5 years ago

    This sounds awesome anyway :D The fact it's based of Norse mythology is kickass, just one small request, make Fenris/Fenrir a good guy? :| He was never actually bad but was forced to hate the gods as they treated him badly after seeing the vision of the world ending and they instantly jumped to the conclusion it would be him. It would be nice if he was an ally or at least just not literal "big bad wolf" of the situation X)

    I definitely will keep tabs on this game cause I like the entire premise of the game and how it is being presented in this game.I look forward to more news in the near future and maybe a demo of combat when they feel it is ready to be shown,but given the team who are making this game,I have no worries!!^^Ty Angry Joe for the upload!

    And this is why I buy any game I like from paradox interactive. Look how passionate this guy talks about his game, never seen any AAA game dev or studio talk about their game this way. Paradox is a small player of games, but the way they work and the things they give us (AT A FREAKING LOW PRICE NOTA BENE) are just beyond imagination. Thumbs up for Paradox and thumbs up for Joe finally interviewing and highlighting their awesome games.

  • Raphael Perry

    Aah, without using Google, Rattatosk is the little squirrel who runs up and won the trunk of Yggdrasil, the world tree. Rattatosk also embodies the spirit of the shaman moving between the different world of consciousness. Interestingly a shaman lost deep in a trance would be described as "lost between the worlds". Many would revere Rattatosk as a guide to help them find their ways back to their bodies.

    Of course shaman is not the correct word to use. I should probably use Volva or Sidr but Shaman helps to get the point across.

    For what it is worth...the 'real' (and with that i mean the non Marvel version) of Mjölnir can be lifted and carried by everyone. Its just a weapon that would not fail someone that wears a belt that gives him superhuman strength, as Thor does. It also would never miss its target and never fly so far away from him, that it couldn't be retrieved.
