Screenshot Frenzy: Banner Saga, An Epically Depressing, Viking Inspired – RPG/Turn Based Strategy Game

Another successful kickstarter baby, Banner Saga – was but a benchmark purchase for me on my thrifty Honor 4x. Excited to test out this cheap Huwawei Octacore’s gaming prowess I picked up a few games from the Google Play Store for kicks. What started off as a fluke buy became two weeks of long loo breaks, 3 a.m. coffee runs from the bedroom and utter chaos in my work flow.

Here’s another installment of Screenshot Frenzy and a few captions to explain why you should pick this up on your mobile.

This game tends to be depressing, a whole lot, sometimes these sweet little events are the only break from utter sadness.

I honestly didn’t train a whole lot, but yeah more often only 1 or 2 guys from your party survive the battle to the end.

The only bad thing about the Android version I played was too many of these screens.

Day 16, 400 Clansmen and a few dozen fighters.

An unfamiliar psychic serpent.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-20-45-50

Weird way to say hello on the phone.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-20-46-26

Running low on supplies.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-21-29-59

Phew! A god stone… a place to rest.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-21-30-46

Yet another god stone.

Finally… Juuuno… I got your call, I’m here where are you?

Screenshot_2015-08-12-22-04-25

No one’s here but those creepy villagers peeking out from their windows.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-22-06-31

She’s not here Eyvind.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-22-14-57

But the threads said so…

Screenshot_2015-08-12-22-20-42

Screenshot_2015-08-12-23-45-24

And then the narrator makes things worse.

Screenshot_2015-08-13-00-33-22

Screenshot_2015-08-13-00-34-43

Ok I don’t understand any of that, but I’ll assume you know what’s best.

Screenshot_2015-08-13-00-40-18
