Bad North: Jotun Edition is as free as a viking ship on the open ocean.

It’s Thursday, and you know what that means? Free game!

Bad North: Jotun Edition is the definitive edition of Plausible Concept’s RTS. Dubbed as a “minimalist real-time tactics roguelike,” Bad North tasks the player with defending their island home from a horde of attacking vikings.

The game got decent reviews upon release last year, but mostly just got ignored. If tower defense-meets-RTS-meets-fighting-vikings seems like your thing, free is an excellent price.

Now that this one’s up for grabs, Epic has revealed next week’s freebie. Rayman Legends, the excellent 2013 sequel to Rayman Origins, will be available next Thursday.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
