Long, long ago, the Aesir Gods fought with the primeval Jotun for control of the world. Having won the war, the Aesir set about rebuilding the world to their liking. But building anew upon a flawed foundation is not without its own problems, and an unknowable evil has slipped through the cracks to sow chaos and disorder wherever it goes...

Are you brave enough to take up this quest? Will you have the courage to vanquish evil?


Vikings of Midgard is a hybrid of modern and retro-styled RPGs based on those released on the Super Nintendo, created using the OHRRPGCE engine. Built over the course of 15+ years, it was intended to act as the "face" of the engine, and to showcase as much as possible of what it could do. Featuring original graphics (by Fenrir-Lunaris) and an original soundtrack (by Artimus Bena), Vikings pays homage to the classic role playing games of the 1990's.

Hey a OHRRPGCE game on itch.io 👀

Have you considered making an Android version?  Apparently it is pretty easy for OHRRPGCE games:  https://rpg.hamsterrepublic.com/ohrrpgce/Things_James_Needs_To_Package_Your_OHRR...

hey, will you one day take it to other languages? Or is there some way inside of him that I haven't noticed?

Hi! Is this game open-source?

Hello! The engine used to make Vikings of Midgard is free AND open-source! Additionally, the graphics, music, and other assets used in VoM are free to use in your own projects as well!


I remember this game from long ago. Wonderful to see it appearing here now!
