Song of Iron is a side-scrolling adventure game in a Viking setting. The story has been shrouded in mystery up until this point, but the game’s combat has clearly been honed to a razor’s edge. With your trusty shield, bow, and axe, players will cut through waves of enemies, both human and monstrous alike, to discover Viking treasures and find the great temple of the Gods in order to force them to save your people from impending doom. In an interview with True Achievements, Winters had this to say about the game’s combat system:
I really hope people have a great time in combat, I really want an experience where players are just having fun being a powerful force of Viking.
