The Vivaldi browser has announced that Vivaldia, a new 80s aracde-style game has been released and is available to play directly in its browser. The game is set in a world where humans and technology collide. The hero of the game, Vivaldia, fights to overcome evil and claim her city back. Vivaldia is inspired by the Future Noir and Cyberpunk genre and is available to play both online and offline on Windows, Mac, Linux, Chromebooks, tablets, and Android devices.
Speaking about the game, Vivaldi CEO Jon von Tetzchner said: “Our goal with Vivaldia is not only to give users a great fun game in the browser but to tell our own story – about how Vivaldi is taking the technolgy behemoths head-on and continues to crusade against the concentration of power that lies in a few global corporations.”
Vivaldi features Stacked and Tiled tabs, visual history, web panels, straight out of the box integrations with Phillip Hue Light systems and Razer Chroma devices, as well as the very recent Break Mode – that literally pauses the internet. With the Vivaldi browser, users can also connect and control objects even outside the browser.
Gaming enthusiasts can find an unmatched level of fine-grained control and flexible ways to browse such as powerful tab management including the ability to hibernate tabs (or groups of tabs) to save memory during gaming. Gamers can view multiple tabs side by side (split-screen view), group tabs into stacks, search, pin, drag, and mute tabs. you’ll be able to navigate faster with support for mouse gestures, keyboard shortcuts, quick commands, and a powerful history overview. You can switch search engines on the fly with search engine nicknames and browse search results quicker with Fast Forward and Rewind. Using Web Panels, any site can be added in the sidebar giving quick access to sites such as Discord, Reddit, and more. There is also easy access to bookmarks, downloads, tree-style tab navigation, and built-in Notes. There is built-in pop-out video functionality and other tools such as capturing full-page screenshots, Notes, Calculator and Break Mode. There is also a built-in tracker and ad blocker. “Vivaldi browser is about productivity and flexibility, but we are also all about fun. By adding Vivaldia, we are adding a lot of fun!” Tetzchner said. “The game is easy enough to get started with, but hard enough to make it interesting. Sometimes you just want to have a short break and play a game. Now you can.”
Vivaldia can be accessed on Vivaldi’s desktop browser by clicking on the floating button on the Start Page of the browser. The button can be placed on any of Vivaldi’s customizable toolbars. For Android devices, the game can be accessed through the Vivaldi menu or a dedicated gaming Speed Dial in the Start Page. You can also just type vivaldi://game in the browser’s address field.
