Gunnhildr is an upcoming FPS Rogue-Lite inspired by Norse Mythology, in which players assume the role of an exiled heroine. She is leading a rebellion against the Elders of Niflheim to protect its innocent citizens from the one natural resource (halite) which is both the planet's salvation and undoing.
Gunnhildr features five distinct environments for players to battle through: Niflhel (A location built inside of an asteroid), Niflhellian Fields (asteroid belt surrounding Niflheim), Gilsa ( mountain town where upper class reside), Thrall Mines ( home of the lower class), and the Crystal Caverns ( where halite is mined). The game features procedurally generated environments, a multitude of power ups, and a rich lore for players to uncover through its environments and items.
Players will encounter more than 10 unique enemy types and 4 larger than life bosses. Unlike most shooters the world of Gunnhildr is not one of a traditional bullet hell variety. Each enemy has one or more weak points to uncover and exploit. Every enemy is dangerous in their own way and requires players to learn their mannerisms to efficiently defeat them. Gunnhildr will use her jetpack to dodge, gun arm to fight and a multitude of acquired powers found along their journey to become the new leader of Niflheim.
Why is halite so important? It is the lifeblood of all Niflheim. For the rich it can provide everlasting life. For the poor ... a death eternal in the halite mines. How would YOU manage your halite if your entire wellbeing, currency, ammo, and even your existence depended on it. Players must prioritize the halite they find in order to survive the deadly environments to reach the Elders to lead Niflheim through the darkness back to its former glory.
