Developer Plausible Concept and publisher Raw Fury have released their tactical roguelike game Bad North on Nintendo Switch.

In Bad North you’re the newly appointed king of a small island, and the Viking hordes want to plunder your home badly. You must command and defend the island — which will be a different size and shape in each game — and use your resources and best strategy tactics to fend off the Vikings. Lose a soldier, and he’s gone. Lose the island and it’s gone as well. (You can always reboot and get another one, but it’s the principle…)

REAL-TIME TACTICS ROGUELITE: Position and relocate your troops to fend off the Vikings, who each have their own counters to the threats you pose. Pick your battles and plan your evacuations carefully! Lose a commander and they’re gone forever; lose everything, and it’s game over!

INTELLIGENT UNIT CONTROLS: You command the broad strokes of your defenses and monitor positioning — your soldiers do the rest, navigating and engaging intuitively in response to the situation at hand.

PROCEDURALLY-GENERATED ISLANDS: Each island is both stylistically charming and unique in its layout. Plan your strategies around every nook and cranny, for you only get one chance to save them from the enemy invasion.

UNLOCKABLE UPGRADES: A stronger, smarter defense leads to greater rewards. Use these to develop your subjects from a ragtag militia into seasoned warriors.

Check out Bad North today on Nintendo Switch, and see how long you can survive.
