Hey guys,

The third and final installment of the Banner Saga trilogy is up on kickstarter!


This game series is super, super cool, and I would guess there's a lot of appeal for wargamers. The setting definitely draws on Old Norse legend and mythology (although distinctly it's own thing, there's no Odin or Thor in here), the world is beautifully rendered in hand-drawn art that I think is reminiscent of classic animation a la Rankin/Bass or Ralph Bakshi, and the story is pretty compelling. Gameplay is nice and straightforward, with fun turn-based tactical battles and plenty of decision-making that will influence the story, providing good replay value.

For newcomers to the series, the kickstarter also offers some very affordable ways to grab the first two installments, so it would be easy to familiarize yourself with the series before the last installment lands.
