Viking remains?

In the lore-ish section of the Hunter's Moon info page, you mentioned that sometime before Columbus' colonisation, the Vikings attempted to conquer the wolf-riddled island but failed to do so. My question is... Would the player character be able to find the remains (bones, armors, camp ruins) of the Vikings?

I personally think that it'd be a good addition to the horror elements of the game, sending chills down player's spines and all. Let me know what you think! ;)

I love the idea, I'd also love to try playing it with norse equipment to see how what that would be like.

Only issue with the discover of old settlements is that at minimum you could push it to 500 years old, realistically it would be 700. Not a lot would survive that, at least the sort of construction we'd be looking at would not. I don't see any reason why caves wouldn't preserve some interesting things though.

Ah yes, caves! Exactly what I was thinking, they very much do tend to preserve ancient artefacts, it'd be spooky entering a cave for shelter and lighting a torch only to find the spooky skeletal remains of a Viking inches away from your feet!

  • New quick status page

    See it here: Status

    I am really bad at keeping the blog up to date, and my plans have to change fairly frequently due to personal, professional, resource, and industry situation changes. This page is an attempt to have something that is quick enough to update that I am able to do it regularly. It also has very little information, so I don't have to worry about my confidence in prediction, or sharing things that are not ready. Every project that has been started will have an entry here that clearly states my current assessment of its status.

  • New plans

    I think it's about time to talk about some longer term plans again. I've posted a bit about the current work on the ranged weapon interaction system, and also a bit on the HoO collaboration, but it's been a while since I said anything relating to our primary game ambitions.

    We have some new plans, but it's nothing drastic. The previous plan was to develop Hunter's Moon (the werewolves) and then using all the tech it used to build a general purpose combat simulator (GPCS, as yet unnamed). That plan heavily depended on having a year or so of solid full time development; probably funded through a kickstarter.

  • A sign of things to come

    With the musket and pistol kindly provided by the hearts of oak team all attention now focuses on the ranged weapon interaction system!

    I am super excited about this, and I think everyone will love what I've come up with.

    Time-scales are fuzzy, but hopefully not as long as it took to put the AI in place last year.

  • Colaboration with the Hearts of Oak team

    This is a big announcement that should have been made a while ago, but now that the AI is implemented on the combat testbed it can't wait.

    A few months ago I approached the lead developers for the Hearts of Oak project with a proposal for collaboration. Basically to provide our combat engine to them in return for publicity, assets, and the joy of contributing to such an important piece of work.

    A summary of the agreement is as follows:
