D-Pad Studio, creators of the 2016 gem Owlboy, have annnounced their next project: Vikings on Trampolines. It’s in development for both PC and consoles, and it’s a pixel-art, 1-4 player co-op side-scrolling adventure whose primary traversal mechanic is, as the name implies, trampolines. Check out the reveal trailer above and the first screenshots in the gallery below.
The story mode puts you on a quest to stop the villain Balloonie and rescue King VI (with numerous boss fights along the way, D-Pad Studio promises), while the party-game-esque competitive Versus modes will pit up to four friends against each other.
“Vikings on Trampolines began life as one of our small experimental projects, which won the first Nordic Games Indie Sensation Award back in 2011,” said D-Pad Studio’s Jo-Remi Madsen. “After releasing Owlboy, we’ve since returned to the idea and developed it into a fun, fully-fledged, co-op adventure!”
IGN will have more on Vikings on Trampolines at Gamescom 2022.
