Steam & Xbox One Platformer ‘Völgarr The Viking’ Ported To Sega Dreamcast & Released For Free

Volgarr-The-Viking-Sega-Dreamcast-PortIf you’ve ever once felt that the classic consoles were missing out on brand new titles, think again. The impressive Steam and Xbox One retro-platformer Völgarr The Viking has just been given an official port to the Sega Dreamcast and released online for free as a downloadable game disc.

Originally hitting modern platforms back in 2013, Völgarr The Viking is one of those throwback titles that collects everything that made classic platformers great into one release. Offering plenty of challenging action and pixel perfect artwork, the game makes for some nostalgic playthroughs which can now be enjoyed on the Sega Dreamcast.

Although this 128-bit port of the game has not been created by the original developer Crazy Viking Studios, they kindly provided access to the game’s resources to Dreamcast coder Marc Hall - the brains behind this new release. Despite the generation gap between the original systems and the Dreamcast, Völgarr The Viking handles incredibly well on the dated platform and is definitely something any retro gamer should check out.

If you're interested in giving Völgarr The Viking a go on the Dreamcast, you can download the game from Marc Hall’s website and burn the CDI file to a blank CD-R (using software such as ImgBurn or DiscJuggler). Full instructions can be found on the port’s website.
