About

Runes of Ragnarok is a dice-based elimination game steeped in Norse mythology. Play as a god and wield awesome powers, summon epic allies to fight by your side, sling dynamic spells to change the tides of battle, and if you're lucky discover a legendary relic to take your game to the next level.

The Story

Odin, the Allfather, ruler of Asgard and protector of the Nine Realms, has gone missing. Now, the world tree Yggdrasil is in turmoil. Its branches shake violently, threatening to destroy the Nine Realms in the cataclysm known as Ragnarok. As the barriers between worlds crumble, monsters and magical creatures spill into Asgard, ravaging the once beautiful land.

You are a legendary Norse god who has decided to take up Odin's mantle and become the new Allfather. The problem is, you're not the only one. Only the strongest hero can sit upon the throne of Asgard and hope to stop Ragnarok before it is too late.

Risks and challenges

Our team at Windborn Games has several years of experience working professionally in video games, marketing, and project management. We understand the difficulties of working under deadlines, with outsourced vendors, and meeting the needs and expectations of clients, all while maintaining a certain degree of transparency to help build trust between the developers of a product and its consumers.

Runes of Ragnarok is 95% finished. We may require a bit more art depending on how well the project goes, but our artist is signed on through the completion of this game. Our manufacturer is lined up and ready to produce as well, plus we have a backup just in case.

Shipping can be dangerous to projects due to unknown costs, which is why even though we have gathered estimates on shipping, we have given ourselves a cushion of error to accommodate unforeseen costs.
