Hand-Drawn Norse Adventure Freja and the False Prophecy Succeeds on Kickstarter

Freja

Another promising indie adventure will see the light of day thanks to crowdfunding, as the Norse-inspired Freja and the False Prophecy has exceeded its CAD$30,000 funding goal on Kickstarter.

The game reached that goal within the last 24 hours of the campaign, with a considerable increase in the number of backers occurring across the final few days. Despite today’s success, the project is still quite some time away from release, as the Kickstarter page estimates a January 2022 launch—three years from now.

Players will step into the shoes of the eponymous Freja, a shield-maiden from the frozen world of Norse mythology, whose raiding ship is destroyed one day, setting her on a path to discover what is wrong with the world.

Freja and the False Prophecy will take players through all of the Nine Realms, where she will battle against all manner of fantastic beasts.

As a 2D Metroidvania title, the game will be rife with secret area, platforming areas, and satisfying combat. Meanwhile, the hand-drawn art style is immediately eye-catching, reminiscent of Thunder Lotus Games’s debut effort Jotun.

For anyone interested, a demo for Freja and the False Prophecy is already available.

Stalker 2 is Not A Revived Version of the Cancelled 2012 Project

Stalker 2

Stalker 2 has been confirmed as an entirely new project that has no basis on the cancelled 2012 sequel.

Roughly a decade ago, fans were excited when Stalker 2 was announced. Unfortunately, in 2012, Ukrainian developers GSC Games World was shut down and all progress on the sequel was put on hold.

All went quiet until 2014 where the company resurfaced and announced that development on a version of Stalker 2 was underway. Despite a developer build for the original Stalker 2 making its way onto the web, GSC Games World chose to start from scratch and create an entirely new AAA experience for the series.

GSC Games World has so far not stated why the decision was made to start from the beginning, aside from the assurance that the new game is currently in development and will hopefully hit stores in 2021.
