Update Hiatus before launch

Good morning all!

Just a quick shout to say that there will be no new updates to the game before the final product launches. We are getting more voice over work done for the finished launch so there will be slightly lengthier than planned release timeline.

I am now targeting end of September for completion and the additional time is being used to make the following changes to the game:

  • More voiceovers being added
  • More thorough testing pass through everything
  • Dynamic Weather System being added
  • Moving from split levels with level loading to small open-world structure with no level loading
  • New questing and map system to make navigating the world while questing easier

I will make regular posts here to show you the work in progress over the next two months as we now make a sprint for the finish line. As always, many thanks for the continued support for the game that the community has shown and I am looking forward to showing you the finished product!

best regards

Patch 2.3 - Bugfixes

Good afternoon all!

Got a patch dedicated to JUST bugfixes this week - as our newly minted QA and Test lead has gotten to grips with some long-standing smaller issues that were messing with overall polish in the game.

Our goals with this build
Polish and bug fixes.


  • No new features have been introduced.


  • No feature improvements.

Bugfixes Start Screen
  • It was possible to right click and see the crafting menu on the main game loading screen. This has now been fixed.

Bugfixes Chapter 1
  • Character disappears underwater swimming in the lake. Astrid now properly floats on the water while swimming.
  • A map glitch allowed going into an area you were not supposed to reach. Fixed.

Bugfixes Chapter 2
  • Voice intro was messed up in the start of Chapter 2 causing overlaying voiceovers. This is fixed.
  • It was possible to go outside the game bounds in several parts of the map. Fixed.
  • A wall glitch existed in the Jorgensen Crypt. Fixed.
  • A item glitch existed in the Jorgensen. Crypt. Fixed.

About This Game

Genre: RPG, Adventure, Puzzle, Single Player
Value for Money: 20-30 hours across all chapters of the game
Think: Witcher meets Horizon Dawn with Indie flair
Release Style: Episodic, fixed price

Discover Jordenheim

A Viking inspired world with lush environments, a flourishing ecology, and deep characters as you immerse yourself in a third person RPG adventure that challenges you with exploration, puzzles and strategic combat as you work your way through our engaging story.

Astrid our heroine, is a young village Witch, toeing the line between old-school Viking magic and the encroachment of modernization on her culture and civilization. Old magic has fled the main parts of Sverige and the Jordenheim regions are under threat from foreign economic interests and belief structures alike. In her village of Guilon, on the outskirts of the Shrouded Realm, Astrid and her mother live a life of outcasts from the main Village.

An unforeseen and terrible turn of events causes her to need to reach out to her estranged Father, Birger the Bastard, an old-school Viking hero of yore - with whom she has no relationship at all. Thus begins our adventure of danger, exploration, and self-discovery as Astrid and Birger set out to unearth the source of these events, while at the same time finding common ground between themselves and forging a lasting father-daughter relationship.

How We Want You To Experience The Game

Blood Bond is being released in an episodic chapter style, where you experience chapters of content over time until the story is completed. Each chapter updates the main game and is not a DLC and will not cost extra. Every chapter is free after the first purchase. See our community pages on Steam for a FAQ.
