  1. The « Dead in » series

DEAD IN VINLAND is the spin-off/sequel of Dead In Bermuda, released on PC in 2015. We intend to make a series of games about survival, where you manage a team of characters in a hostile environment, with narrative and RPG elements. We iterate on the gameplay genre we created (a mix of management mechanics and strong narratives) and evolve from one title to the next, in terms of content, features, quality, and narration.

All the « Dead in » games are tied together by a backstory, a mystery that will be unveiled ltitle by little in each game, revolving around the mysterious Atlantean civilization. With this background, we can have games that take place in any time period or place (we already have plans to make a “Dead in Space”, and more).

  1. Inspirations

In terms of tone, all of our games are on the melancholic side, with light-hearted humor despite mature concerns, and set in a realistic setting with “strange”, “weird” elements, with esoterical meaning. The Twin Peaks TV series is a definitive inspiration for us.

As for Dead in Vinland, the inspiration came after a meaningful roadtrip around Iceland, and learning about its colonization, its sagas, its folktales.

  1. Dead in Vinland

In this sequel/spin off we explore further all the survival mechanics you can think of: water, weather, depression, … Even the relationships with a tyrant, and the hope of a rebellion.

The main focus in DEAD IN VINLAND is the idea of “living together”, and the evolving relationships between characters inside a group.

Finally, we added a “colonization” feeling to the game. In this one, the characters want to set up their new life on this island, so their mindset is quite different than just waiting for oblivion
