A downloadable game for Windows

In A Town Called Hjell, you must lead your band of Norse men and women to victory  by giving the ultimate gift… your life for the good of the Clan.

Each night, one of your clan must be offered up to a deadly monster to keep it from eating you all - all the while keeping your clan supplied, happy, and defendable! Each day brings new troubles, but each day also brings the Longship closer to being completed - and freedom and safety with it.

How To Play

Everything is controlled via the mouse! Scroll with the mouse wheel / trackpad to navigate your town, and click on the prompts to proceed!

Each house holds a unique villager, created at each session start! (Procedural!)

Use ESC to quit the game.

Click to victory -  for the Clan!


This is the working build for the Yogscast Jingle Jam Game Jam, after we uploaded a package that did not include the build file (oops). This may not count towards the Jam prizes, but we wanted to show off what we did. 

We are aware of some issues - however, thought it better to submit then not submit at all! 

Issues we've noted: 

- UI sizing issue

- UI panels not hiding on reset

- Some sprites not changing where appropriate

We will re-upload with fixes once the Game Jame is over. 

Thank you for playing, and hope you enjoy!
