Meet the Vikings of Thule at Gamescom 2009 in Cologne

August 2009

Independent Icelandic game developer Gogogic is revealing further details about its upcoming MMORPG, Vikings of Thule, in preparation for Gamescom 2009. An open Beta version is set to launch in early September and anyone with an active Facebook account can sign up for participation by visiting www.vikingsofthule.com.

Vikings of Thule is a highly polished Flash based Facebook game that includes strategic elements of group management, resource and asset handling, multiplayer battle systems and highly customizable avatars– all within a persistent game world. Gogogic wants Vikings of Thule to set a new standard when it comes to games that are directly tied to larger social networks.

Gogogic is doing even more to push the boundaries with Vikings of Thule. In the future, the company is planning to extend Vikings of Thule onto the iPhone and iPod Touch devices, allowing players to interact with the game world from different angles and perspectives.

The Soft Freaks are coming!

Gogogic has established itself as an iPhone developer and recently the company announced that it was working on Soft Freak Fiesta– a multiplayer game that is specifically designed to take advantage of the unique features and connectivity of the iPhone. People should prepare to bump, bash, and battle it out with cute cuddly finger-friendly freaks over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Of course there will be tons of rewards, achievements, badges, and gadgets to achieve and unlock.
