Sand Sailor Studios announced Asukais a Viking-themed game where you take on the role of a tribal leader after landing your ship in a mystical, ever-changing new realm.

In the game, you will need to survive, build, craft, fight, farm, swim and prepare for Dead Winter as you strive to create a self-sustaining Viking society. You can work with up to three other players to command the villagers and prepare your tribe for the “ancient threat that winter will bring.”

You will also assign jobs to villagers, build castles and build workshops, mines and farms. As you explore the world, you’ll also discover hidden loot and resources, and fight mythical enemies.

Here is the feature list:

  • Up to four players can play together and command the villagers, build their tribe from scratch, hunt for resources, and survive the ancient menace that winter will bring.
  • Assign each villager a different task as they contribute to the tribe and leave their mark on the settlement. Training your villagers will increase their abilities, whether in combat or in their chosen calling.
  • Build workshops, mines, farms, castles and defenses as your village expands. What starts as a collection of humble huts eventually becomes a thriving village where crops are grown, towers are built and anvils are forged.
  • Equip buildings with functional furniture and various decorative elements.
  • Discover hidden caves and other incredible places filled with loot and valuable resources.
  • Set sail on your own Viking ship, discover new lands and build outposts around the world. Set up supply lines between settlements and create a self-sustaining Viking empire.
  • Explore a fantasy, fully procedurally generated world filled with secrets, landmarks and threats, keeping each session dynamic and fresh.
  • Experience a realistic and dynamic weather system around the world where survival priorities change with the seasons.
  • Take on a variety of mythical enemies in exciting skill-based combat.
  • The wise leader of the tribe is preparing for war in peacetime. In this mystical land, an ancient evil lives in the shadows, waiting for the first frost to fall. At the harshest time of the year, while your tribe is fighting the elements, the dark inhabitants of this world are preparing to strike.
