Beyond the initial learning curve, those patient enough to stick around with Dead in Vinland will be rewarded with a brilliantly balanced, challenging experience and will no doubt become emotionally invested in the characters and their tale of survival.
Dead in Vinland is a challenging survival that often leaves you struggling to stay alive. It’s frustrating and laborious at times, but when it clicks and you learn how to overcome the most difficult of challenges, you’re offered glimmers of hope and moments of joy that make you keep playing. The characters are interesting – even the annoying teenager Kari – and the art style is very pretty. If you fancy a different take on survival and want one hell of a challenge, this is one you should definitely play.
While some of the same old issues are still there on Switch – specifically the forgettable combat and random nature of its systems – there’s still a lot to like about this Viking adventure. Balancing so many spinning plates is stressful, but seeing your community come back from the brink of despair only to flourish is an experience few other games on the platform can match. There’s very little here to attract players who have already braved Dead In Vinland’s wilds, but even without support for touchscreen play, the titular isle still has plenty to offer new settlers.
