"Norse Side Stories" DLC Available NOW + 1.4 Patch + New language!

Hello survivors!
This is IT! The final DLC for Dead In Vinland is finally available!

One thing that we love in games with a group of many characters is the interactions between those characters!

It's very annoying for us to see RPGs with a party of 8 people who never seem to talk to each other.

Games like the "Tales of" series handle very well those relations with the little skits that show conversations between the characters, whether it's about the main story, or about their every day life in their journey!

Even though we were happy with the dialogues with the main family in Dead In Vinland, we wanted to go even further with this new DLC, and answer the question "What could those two say to each other"

Obviously, there are characters who would have a very hard time liking each other, considering their story and their personality. However, there are characters who might find out they have more in common than they had thought...

We added nearly 100 new dialogues between the secondary characters

  • More drama!
  • 3 new romances, and 3 new endings!
  • New traits!
  • New decisions to make!

There is AT LEAST one dialogue between each secondary character! :)

New language!

Thanks to our awesome community translators Siodog and Damian, Dead In Vinland now fully supports:
  • Spanish (Latin America) - Community Translation. Thanks A LOT to Damian and Siodog!

We also want to thank our AWESOME community translators who worked hard on translating the many new dialogues in the DLC: Faera, Kerrael, Mr Orochimaru, you are the best! <3

1.4 Patch

In this 1.4 Patch, there are 2 new romances/endings with the main characters!
  • Added a dozen of new free dialogues corresponding to 2 new romances/endings
  • Tweaked the order of apparition of bosses in enemies stacks for Heodening Mode
  • Corrected some bugs inserted with the previous patch (character bio, character orders and the achievement "Nobody Will be Left Behind")

“[...]Dead in Vinland is compulsive, and a great example of systemic roguelike storytelling.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Super complete and addictive, you won't see the time fly: "one more turn" is a recurring phrase.”
8.5 – Actu Gaming

“Everything interlocks with its complicated little gearwheels, battles break up the constant events of the day beautifully and even the figures make me with the time much more curious.”
79 – GameStar

About This Game

DEAD IN VINLAND is a survival/management game, mixed with RPG and adventure elements, about a Viking family trying their best to survive on a mysterious island.

Exiled on a faraway and unknown land, lead Eirik and his family on their quest to survive.
Manage their physical and mental health, explore the island, organize your camp and deal with other human beings. Some will help you, and some will be less... friendly.
Unveil the esoteric mysteries of Vinland. They could save your life… or lead you to your demise.


  • Deep survival management simulation : find and gather resources, secure a supply of food, take care of the mental and physical health of your characters, fight diseases and wounds, ration your water supplies, endure the elements (storm, drought, rain…).

  • Challenging: the game is turn-based so you have time to take the best decisions, but the challenge is high! You’ll have to adapt to the crisis the game throws at you, with your own reasoning.
  • 3 modes of difficulty: if you just want to enjoy the story, we added an easy mode and, for the crazy lunatics, we added both an extreme difficulty and iron man mode, that even the developers of the game can’t beat!

  • Build your camp: expand your shelter with 18 activity stations, each one with its own mechanics. Craft more than 130 upgrades and dozens of items to give you precious bonuses. Choose well, you won’t be able to craft everything.

  • Manage a community: 14 playable characters, each one with their own strengths, flaws and stories. Influence how their relationships evolve with meaningful dialog choices, achieve one of the 7 possible romances or kick annoying characters from your camp and recruit new ones. And some surprises!

  • Explore the island: 150 areas to discover with hundreds of objects to interact with. Unveil the many secrets of the island and its beautiful, hand-painted landscapes.

  • Don’t just survive, settle: you can hunt, harvest, fish… but you can also grow a garden and breed sheep! Advanced camp stations with special mechanics.
  • Live your own adventure: complete 70 non-linear quests to reach the end of the game. Depending on your choices, learn about what happened to your characters after the end.

  • Animosity and tribute system : be “welcomed” by the infamous tyrant Björn Headcleaver and his merry band of robbers. Bend the knee and pay him weekly tributes, or rebel… and face the consequences.
  • Full RPG system: 5 health states to care for, 20 skills to develop, more than 600 character traits, 100 items to collect, 30 diseases and 20 wounds to die from… Customize your characters: choose from 5 randomly generated special traits every time they level up.

  • Turn-based tactical combat: quick and deadly 3 vs 3 battles against Björn’s minions. 5 unique playable character classes, each with its own set of fighting skills, and 5 passive classes.
  • HUGE content: more than 150 000 words - twice the size of the first Harry Potter book - telling a mature yet humorous story.


    DEAD IN VINLAND is the second installment in the “Dead In…” universe, after DEAD IN BERMUDA. The two games are standalones, but you’ll learn a bit more about the secrets behind these strange islands and the general background in each game of the series.
