‘Survival tribe builder’ Aska tasks you and your friends with building a Viking society

Twitch channel. The game's screenshots demonstrate some deliciously desolate Northern European landscapes, as well as some mean-looking glowy Leshen guys (presumably some of those “dark inhabitants” the developer mentioned).

Aska will go through several rounds of closed playtesting, with the first beginning November 24. If you're interested in checking Aska out early, you can sign up for the chance on the game's official website.
