Kim Swift and Airtight Games’ previously teased Ouya-exclusive is a randomly generated dungeon crawler with rhythm based combat called Soul Fjord.

The game is set in a fantasy universe, where the genres of 70s funk and soul have merged with Norse mythology, complete with “lounge Dragons” and “disco Wizards.”

As a viking named Magnus Jones, a legendary warrior slain in battle, you’re brought to Valhalla, the hottest nightclub in Yggdrasil, only to find out you’re not on the guest list, and won’t be invited to Ragnarok, the “party that will end the world.” To regain his reputation, Magnus must fight his way up the world tree and gain access to Valhalla.

A trailer and developer diary featuring Swift, lead concept artist Chris Madden, art director Casey Quevedo, and lead animator Doug Magruder can be seen below.
