    I didn’t care for Dead in Vinland. The setup’s decent, and early on I thought I’d enjoy my time spent starving, dehydrated and constantly getting attacked by murderous brigands on a desolate island. Alas, it takes an experience that could have been an acceptable eight-hour journey and stretches it out to over fifty (or more!) and becomes an absolute chore by the time players finally wrap it up.

  1. At its best, Dead in Vinland is compulsive, and a great example of systemic roguelike storytelling. Just be prepared to scratch your beard constantly at some baffling writing decisions. Or, be prepared to buy a fake beard, I guess. All Viking games should now come with beards. New rule. You heard it here first. Also, mead. And an axe. You’d think we’d be able to download axes by now.

    But here is the thing: all the possibilities are huge! You can customize your camp, you can fight, you can recruit other lads for your camp (or not, in order to keep more food for the family). I didn't played a lot for now, but wow..!

    On 7 game ( each game take between 5 & 30 hours on normal & hard-mode ), each game are unique ! new random event each time, other character to recruit, other fight & other problem to resolve.
