In The Banner Saga, hand-painted landscapes portray a world eerily suspended in perpetual twilight. Cities and towns begin to crumble into chaos. Heroes abandon their hearths and homes to traverse the snowy countryside, gaining allies along the way to help battle a strange, new threat.

In the game, which was successfully funded through a Kickstarter campaign last year, choice directly affects a player's personal journey across a stunning yet harsh landscape and, ultimately, the survival of an entire civilization.

Turn-based strategy brings tactical challenge in hand-animated battle sequences. With visuals evocative of the golden age of animation. The Banner Saga brings skillfully crafted art, story and strategy to gamers waiting to re-experience classic adventures and tactics.

“Our core goal as a company is to help make independent game studios successful and preserve their independence,” said General Manager Steve Escalante. “The Stoic team took huge risks to create this exquisite game and they were rewarded with a tremendous fan base with their successful Kickstarter. We are proud to be a part of the launch of The Banner Saga.”

The game will release on January 14, 2014 for PC and Mac.
