We want to start building our own tribe that will come with us on this journey to make a unique Viking odyssey!”

Here’s an overview of the game, via its Steam page:


In ASKA, you strive to build a self-sustaining Viking tribe, working, crafting, sailing, hunting and fighting together. Command and organize your villagers from a third-person perspective, work and fight alongside them, taking care of their every need.

Key Features

  • Live out your Viking fantasy alone or with friends.
  • Up to four players can play together and command villagers, building their tribe from the ground up, hunting for resources and surviving the ancient threat of winter.
  • Assign each villager various jobs as they contribute to the tribe and leave their own mark on the settlement.
  • Build workshops, mines, farms, castles and defenses as you expand your village.
  • Discover hidden caves and other incredible areas in the world, all filled with loot and valuable resources.
  • Sail your own customizable Viking ship, discover new lands and build outposts around the world. Establish supply lines between settlements and create a self-sufficient Viking empire.
  • Explore a stunning, fully procedurally generated world full of secrets, landmarks and threats, keeping each session dynamic and fresh.
  • Experience a realistic and dynamic weather system around the world, with survival priorities changing in turn with the seasons.
  • Fight a variety of mythical enemies in exciting skill-based combat.
  • Customize buildings with functional furniture and various decorative items.

Build Jaw-Dropping Viking Villages

Houses, workshops, defenses, altars, shipyards, castles and farms—the design of your village and your economy is in your hands. Each structure is handcrafted in stunning detail to allow you to build a functional and visually impressive Viking tribe.

Your Village is Alive

You don’t just build your village, you live in it. Build, work and fight alongside your people, walk through the very village you helped build, and witness entire production cycles unfold. In order for the tribe to function coherently, each individual member must also have his or her own personal needs met. They have daily schedules, and need rest, food, drink and companionship to survive. You’re not just building a base—you’re building a living village!

Villagers Play Their Part

Training your villagers will increase their skills either in combat or their chosen vocation. Cultivating skilled blacksmiths will benefit your tribe in many ways, while skilled hunters will be able to explore further into the world, collecting additional materials or helping to feed the tribe more efficiently.

Expand and Reclaim Land

As you conquer more of this world and your tribe expands, your settlement will grow. What begins as a collection of modest cabins ends up becoming a thriving village where crops are farmed, towers are raised, and anvils are hammered. Eventually all of your followers’ homes will become uniquely decorated, echoing their own individuality.

…And When The Dead of Winter Comes

A wise chief prepares for war in times of peace… On this mystical land, an ancient evil dwelled in the shadows, waiting for the first frost to fall. During the harshest season of all, as your tribe battles the elements, the dark denizens of this world prepare to strike…
