Olga & Rage




While the Viking men are busy organizing barbecue parties and fighting wars, the fierce viking women provide the Vikings with gold to fund their endless pillaging campaigns!

Yet another Factions update! This time, learn about the Viking worker, or Olga as we'd like to call her, and the Viking Rage spell. Watch out for their obvious charms as these Viking ladies are real golddiggers! 

In the meanwhile the game is now all but finished. At the the moment it's going through a thorough last playtesting pass. We want to make sure the game is spotless before we send it off to Nintendo ;).

Anyway, to check out the new updates go to the factions page! Skøll!

Mario64a said...

That's right, Falco (2 times).

Btw. I found your name at another forum where U told about Swords and Soldiers. Very good, more places where written about the game means more people who read it.

More news 2 come soon, so keep coming back 4 more :-P

I hope a new movie is posted soon where U can c where the team gets it's idea from 4 the sounds and ..... < error, message could not send, try again later >

i want more units than this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

depressed said...

not including the stupid villager all we have is 4 units....really Ronimo? i thought this was going to be a game to get, guess i was rong

i agree 4 units per faction is a bit small

Olivier said...

agree 4 units per faction is a bit small

Understandable, but we have deliberately chosen to keep the number of units limited so we could make each unit really unique in terms of graphical appearance and gameplay. Also remember that apart from units, each faction has access to 5 different spells. As part of the strategy in S&S is achieved by combining certain spells with certain units, the amount of tactics in the game is far greater than one might imagine. Crudely said, we think the game is a lot more fun with a small but well-thought-out bunch of units than it would be with a lot of units that are essentially all alike. Less is more ;)

@mario:
aaaah,you must be talking about my thread on friendcodes.com.(FC.com) I remember that.

Im actually going to make another one (tomorrow maybe),and submit it to the homepage writer,so maybe it will get posted on the homepage of FC.And i made that thread when i first heard about it lol.So the game caught my eye easily.

And on a side note,google my name,and i will come up a lot (im not sure if thats what you did)im most famous on naruto-boards.com and growing on FC.com

As for little units:
less units increases the strategy.And if there is a sequel,they will most likely add more

hij said...

wait so is olga just a gold person or can she fight? the desctiption confuses me....

Erik said...

Whinos! So I've been playing the game a bit now, and part of the whole point of it, is that your options are limited. It's not freakin' C&C on the pc over here! There are a few very different unit, so you can't just keep spawning zillions of different things; with the addition of those five spells per side, there are actual challenging tactics involved! You should try it for yourself - I'm telling you it's awesome!

(and no, I'm not being paid to say this... :D )

Mario64a said...

I'm a tester, and I don't get paid 4 it eather, but this game really rocks. Just download it when it's there, U won't get bored when playing the game alone or with a friend. I'm not into RTS, but Swords & Soldiers is something really cool. Just try it at a friend and then download it yourself.

I can't wait 2 check everything again in the full version. Maybe I even get new ideas 4 S&S part deux (ok, that's not the name of it) when Nintendo like the game also.

ronald said...
