“To Odin's Glory” tells an epic saga with every game you play. Here you relive the cultural successes, trade expeditions and looting of those we now call “Vikings,” a term that had a whole new meaning at the end of the first millennium. When these men from the north embarked on a raid, they used to say that they were going on a "viking". Their Scandinavian ancestors were however much more than pirates: they were also a people of explorers and founders of states. It is said that Leif Eriksson was the first European to set foot in America, long before Christopher Columbus. In the region we now call Normandy, these intruders were not called Vikings but “Normans”. One of them was the famous William the Conqueror, who invaded England in 1066. He succeeded where the King of Norway failed a few years before: conquering the throne of England. If the people of this people became exceptional sailors, it was partly because of their difficult agricultural situation: the poor harvests were the cause of great distress. In this game, you can explore new territories, or ravage them. You will also simulate everyday life, harvesting resources in order to access a stable financial position within the company. At the end of the game, the player with the most valuable possessions wins.
