Update 1.7.5 - Release!

We've released out of Early Access!

NOTE: Updating to this version (1.7.5) loses all current progress.

All of the core features for Void Vikings are complete and in the game. Part of this is a breaking change that means you'll lose all current progress (unlocked ships, high scores). We know this is an unpleasant choice but one we felt was necessary due to the balancing changes we've done to the game. Previous ships and items don't reflect how the game has evolved as well as previous scores aren't in line with what's possible in game.

The balancing changes have touched education bonuses, ship base stats, and item stats. Our goal with these was to make each ship give a unique playing experience, the items to be interesting choices while you're playing and the education bonuses worth the debt you pay off.

This update also focuses on bringing in Steam specific features and to rework the overall balancing and polish of the game. For Steam features we've added cloud saves, achievements, and trading cards to the game.

Big changes:
  • All current progress will be lost!
  • A new leaderboard for the released game.
  • Steam features; cloud saves, achievements, trading cards.

Notable additions:
  • Added the tutorial back to the game for new players.
  • You can delete unwanted ships from Valhalla.
  • Education choices are saved for each ship.
  • Inventory items are sorted by level.
  • Unity launcher removed and settings moved to in game.

Key bug fixes:
  • Education bonuses were being limited by item stat caps.
  • Could use new game UI to overwrite education choices of game in progress.
  • Controller input improved; icons for Wii/PS4/XB1 controllers added, won't get stuck if no controller connected.
  • Controllers B button backs you out of everything.

Update 1.7.4

Lubing up the plasma injectors! This update focuses on making the game run and play better. To do this we've worked on the games performance and balancing. Our goal is to make the game fun, challenging and with engaging decisions from the start all while running at a minimum smooth 60 frames per second.

We got our performance gains through reworking physics behaviors and greatly reducing our draw calls. Outside those two large areas we also made a lot of small changes throughout the game to find and squash anything that was using a lot of CPU effort unnecessarily.

For balancing and gameplay we've worked on items and enemies. This means improved item stats and several iterations of balancing to make them more interesting when compared with each other. We've also fine-tuned item and money drop rates to give a better experience. Enemies are now more frequent and there are now some special very powerful enemies to make things more interesting. The education bonuses have also been increased to make the choices more meaningful but so has the interest rate of the loan it gives you. Paying it off is more fun though since your skill in the game gives you more item or money drops. One shot kills, multi-kills, kill streaks, and the very powerful enemies all give you more loot.

Additions:
  • Special powerful enemies
  • Vsync setting

Key bug fixes:
  • Enemy movement and AI improved to be completely framerate independent.
  • Health drops will fly to you correctly whenever or wherever you are if you are damaged.
  • Surt ship secondary attack works correctly.

“It's a very very fun, top down, 2d, diablo style, procedurally generated, rogue like, almost, kind of, shooter. Wow, I, so many, this game has so many genre's, I love it. Void Vikings, gentlemen, go check it out.”

About This Game

Pick your ship and pile on the student loans for an education that will best compliment you and your ships abilities. Be wary you don't take on too much or death could find you before you're able to pay it off. Blast your way through waves of enemies to collect items to outfit your ship and Space Bucks for upgrades. Choose systems to warp to based on their difficulty and interest rates to maximize how you're able to enhance your ship and pay off your debt. If you survive long enough to destroy your loans as you've destroyed your enemies you can take your well educated and battle tested ship into Valhalla to attempt a high score for the leaderboards.

  • 2.5D, top down, fast paced, action packed roguelike space shooter.
  • Four unique ships with their own special abilities.
  • Go into debt for an education (choose University, Major, Minor and Electives) to boost your abilities.
  • Pay off your education with Space Bucks you get from destroyed enemies or melted items.
  • Use items to increase your fighting power, melt them down for item upgrades or debt payments.
  • Procedurally generated items, star systems and enemy fleets make each attempt unique.
  • Paid off education and ship combinations saved for endless high score attempts on Steam Leaderboards.
