“Vikings on Trampolines began life as one of our small experimental projects, which won the first Nordic Games Indie Sensation Award back in 2011,” said D-Pad Studio’s Jo-Remi Madsen. “After releasing Owlboy, we’ve since returned to the idea and developed it into a fun, fully-fledged, co-op adventure! Between Simon’s incredible art, an awesome soundtrack and a unique concept, we aim to deliver a game bursting with the character and quality D-Pad Studio is known for.”
