Megapop, a startup studio founded by former Funcom ( Age of Conan, The Longest Journey) and Artplant ( Battlestar Galactica Online) developers, today unveiled Trolls vs Vikings, their debut game mobile / PC puzzle game, which will be demonstrated at GDC 2013.

Trolls vs Vikings is a brand new tower defense game for players of all ages and experience levels, where you're tasked with defending a tribe of grumpy, misunderstood-but-harmless Trolls from raids by Vikings intent on stealing their gold. This colorful, engaging and edgy lane defense game is set in a world of rich Norse mythology, populated by a cast of over-the-top characters. With their background in creating Triple-A MMO, Adventure and Browser titles, Megapop are setting the bar high for their debut game.

Trolls vs Vikings adds a number of never-before-seen features, striving to evolve the tower defense genre for a whole new audience. It takes a fresh approach to towers, levels, gameplay, tactics, player interaction and boss fights. In addition, Trolls vs Vikings has a number of genre enhancements, including multiplayer matches (both live and asynchronous), full social integration, movable towers, strategic resource gathering, a dynamic tile system, set-piece challenges, and more. How did they fit all that game into one little game?!
