Viking Days is a series of mini-game challenges using VR motion controllers to immerse the player in many daily activities.

Now any Virtual Reality (VR) gamer can finally train to be a REAL Nordic Warrior!

Using VRMonkey’s years of experience, Viking Days has been designed to have maximum intuitive and comfortable gameplay, even in the most frenetic situations.  Players can just put their headsets on and enjoy the amusement of throwing axes, forging swords, running from giants, and more. The designers of the game are proud to save precious time with few to no tutorials. After beating a day, you have the chance to play it again, but harder, until your skills get to the limit.

“I was missing a game that was all about having fun, so we did it!”, states Pedro Kayatt, CEO and co-founder of VRMonkey. “the idea was simple, games are getting more and more complicated, and Virtual Reality is all about having things simple, to immerse yourself in another world and just to enjoy this experience.” The concept of playing VR games in parties came after seeing how much fun people have not only playing, but also watching how “crazy” people get when using Virtual Reality.

The game will be released on every major VR platform, from Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Go to HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR. Following a proprietary pipeline VRMonkey was able to bring the same game from mobile 3DOF VR to high-performance 6DOF VR, adjusting controls to the most suitable experience in each platform. The team worked strenuously to bring great graphics for even old mobile VR setups, creating a fluid experience with minor visual tweaks from one version to another.

Viking Days mixes the simplicity of Job Simulator with the challenge of WarioWare, with 10 minigames representing daily activities in an immersive fantasy Nordic environment. Viking Days is available starting today on Oculus Go and GearVR, Oculus’s mobile high-quality platform for $3.99 and can be downloaded through here.
