Is this inspired by hnefatafl?



Hello, I work on a small podcast where I like to interview indie dev's and their projects, would you like to do an episode? My contact info is on profile and link to my channel.

Sorry for the delay! Unfortunately I'm a bit busy to do any of this at the moment. Best of luck! :)


This is a really fun game, would like to see more of it.


Honestly would pay money for this! I love small strategy games.


This is fantastic, i love isometric strategy games.


This is like an actual game

Haha Yes it is :D isn't that what is expected?

Well yes, but if you had told me this wasn't a jam game I would've totally believed you

ooooh haha ok. Thank you!

Nice elegant game with simple rules. The random obstacles make it nicely replayable!

Also, royal puppy certainly the cutest.

Thanks! :)


I've been playing for like 45mins now and I can't stop... kinda hard in the beginning but I think I got it now. Super cool! 



Very nice! Somehow reminds me of Thud! from Discworld.

thank you :)


Great Work!

Thank you!
