Pkease find the corresponding article on IndieDB

The story behind:
Ranulf, the shaman is well experienced in making potions by utensils which he brought from his travels to asia. In his magical Alchemy laboratory he collected many useful things, i.e. ingrediences to make potions, or ready to use potions or charms to apparate away from Skullwald to far away regions within seconds. Things which could be very helpful for you to win this game.

But the usage of these things is quite complicated and a secret. It's on you to find out how to combine the right utensils in the right way. Doing it wrong could be extremly dangerous for you by the way and not all ingredience are harmless.

The Treasure Box
At Level 3 you may find a very interesting table in Ranulfs hut. On the table are many helpful things, but the best thing is within the sealed treasure box. Opening it with the right key will present a phantastic content. But, what's the hack .... where to find that key ?!

The potion regal
At Level 4 you will recognice an additional furniture with many potions, which you can use. But be careful not all of them are helpful.

The Philosopher Stone - and now it's your turn !
Ranulf made a lot of experiences, but at the end he ensembled his first recipe - the Philosopher Stone. A recipe to transform certain ingredience into pure gold. Since gold is very rare on your island - it is more than interesting for you create the Philosopher Stone on yourself.

With version 1.8 we've implemented the first recipe .... the following versions will include additional recipe, which you have to discover.

Upgrade information 1.8
When you upgrade from Version 1.7 the SavedGame should work without any incompatibilties.
When you upgrade from an earlier version then we strongly recommend to start a clean, new game.

About This Game

In general, people associate with Vikings - only battles and carnage. Historically, however, the Vikings were real allrounders: ingenious explorers, merchants, fighters and sailors. They understood, much better than any other people at that time the art of economics. From their trading centers in the Baltic Sea, Birka and Haithabu they sailed the seas and developed extensive trade routes from Russia to the Mediterranean.

Back into the Year 853 a.d

The game considers all aspects of Vikingism in a fantastic 3D world - trade, economics, and combat to the degree that they may have been in the real life of a Viking. But what begins as a simple, normal viking life on a deserted island, becomes more and more to a bizarre and magical realm of the old Northern Gods.
To describe VikingJourney content the best way, think of the popular formats like Myst (or Riven), Siedler and Medieval War. All shifted into the year 853 a.d.

The Economy

Goal is to build a robust economic system with a flourishing maritime trade under realistic climatic and seasonal conditions. Only with the income of your island production and the reward of fullfilled tasks you’re able to fulfill the claims of your lord - Thorvaldson.

Battles & Intrigues

But apart from the harsh climate and other bad circumstances - like Intrigues & treachery - the multitude of enemies are the biggest threat to your prosperity and your life. As a loyal swordsman of Thorvaldson, you will receive guard troops and can protect your village with massive weapons. Protection that you need to defend you properties and inhabitants.

Other information about the game:

  • The costs, prices, taxes, flows of goods and materials, but especially the interconnectedness and interdependence, take into account all the components of today's economy and production system.
  • The presentation of the figures, the calendar and the seasons, are largely based on historical traditions and geographical conditions. At the presentation of battle scenes, however, in order to increase the thrill, we have used a little bit of fantasy.
  • The in-game time of the game is divided so that 1 hour of real time means a day in-game. This results in a varied and long playing time in which you can do your daily work under realistic changing weather conditions and seasons.
Average Net Playtime: 72 hours - as Viking Journy experienced player (150 hours as newbie)
