The Banner Saga

The Banner Saga is an independent story-driven, single-player tactical from Stoic Studio. The game's Viking inspired story centers around a brewing threat and a journey through cold, harsh terrain to seek others to join the fight back against the devastation that could occur. The game's art, backgrounds, characters, and animated sequences are mostly hand drawn, with the art style influenced by the Disney film Sleeping Beauty, and films by Don Bluth and Ralph Bakshi.

The turn-based tactical combat is reminiscent of classics like Final Fantasy Tactics, which is also known for its compelling story. The game's developers, all veterans of BioWare, wanted to emphasize a strong mature story with player choices that genuinely impact the outcome of the story. The Banner Saga was a significant Kickstarter success, reaching over $700,000 on a $100,000 goal.

FEATURES

  • The Story Adapts to You | Players can make decisions in the game that will impact the events and outcome of the story.
  • Hand Drawn Viking Fantasy Epic | Travel through the land and recruit others to join the fight alongside you in a world inspired by classic animation.
  • Turn-based Tactical Combat | After gathering your party, learn to use all your recruits' strengths in strategic combat.

A Gorgeous Handcrafted Game - The Banner Saga News

The Banner Saga began its life as a Kickstarter created by Stoic, a new company founded by former employees of Bioware Austin. That lineage is unsurprising; The Banner Saga is a story-driven, branching dialogue tactical RPG in the great Bioware tradition. Stoic has mentioned in Kickstarter updates that the Android release is imminent, but for the time being we took the opportunity to review the iOS version and evaluate what kind of fit this already critically successful RPG is on mobile devices.
