It appears that the year 2016 will be the best year for mobile games. Along with the famous franchises and anticipated titles will come a gorgeous masterpiece called The Frostrune. It is a point-and-click adventure game that is being developed by Grimnir and can be best compared to Year Walk. Having made our list as one of the best mobile games yet, Year Walk continues to be a source of inspiration for many games. One major similarity that you will notice is that both games are built upon North European Mythology and present legends through a mysterious lens.
Set in the glorious age of the Vikings, The Frostrune begins with a terrible storm that shipwrecks you on a strange island. You then discover that there is a nearby village that is abandoned, but it’s enshrouded in a myriad of secrets that can lead you to solve the mystery of the island. The game is full of elements based on Norse culture, religion, mythology, and symbolism.
Finally, we expect the game to be a leading beacon when it comes to Norse mythology because Grimnir is a development studio that was formed in 2013 out of interest and passion for the Viking age. The official announcement confirms that The Frostrune will be released in 2016 for iOS & Android but it is not clear when exactly. You can watch the pre-release trailer for this game below.
