The Journey of Iesir

The Journey of Iesir takes place in a land reminiscent of the medieval ages, yet has a story that integrates ideas as old as the legendary Vikings, and as modern as the hippie movement in the 1970's.

The player takes the role of Michael, a wandering playwright among other things, and he sees Iesir and its troubles through the fresh eyes of a stranger, yet he becomes pivotal to the events that unfold in Iesir.   Seeking both adventure and inspiration for his new screenplay, under the guidance of his mysterious Mentor, Mikael seeks out a Viking called Daniel Trondhjemsfjord, who needs help with a task that seems adventurous.  What seems like a simple quest of stealing a old Viking painting soon turns out to be more then Mikael could have ever imagined...

Who is his mysterious Mentor, who has set Mikael on a path that leads him to places he never imagined?  How do the recent viking attacks along the coastline fit into Daniel's past, and Iesir's future?  Why is there a demon-possessed, moose-headed alchemist in town?  The game delivers a rich and detailed plot dealing with some hefty issues along with a a large dollop of humour. The Journey of Iesir is a tale of discovery and change on many levels.


The Journey of Iesir plays like a typical point and click adventure computer game, and hopes to immerse the player in this unique world through its story, character and game play elements. With its combination of drama and humor, the Journey of Iesir will always provide something for the player to look forward to.

Screenshots
(everything is WIP)



We're currently working on Chapter 1 and half of the backgrounds are complete. Much of the graphics and animations have place-holders and you can already starting to get a great feel of the world of Iesir. We produce with high ambitions and aim to get a high quality game that we later might try to pitch to a publisher.

The screenshots look nice, and the hero looks a bit like Stephen Colbert.

Some very nice games in production at the moment! The art looks wonderful, very CMI.

edit: "It is a painting worth a shipload." - Awesome line, Will there be voice acting?

Also, your writing underneath the screenshots managed to repeat itself without me noticing. It really messed with my head  :=

Lovely work, that really makes you want to keep staring at it. Incidentally, is that a picture of Hugo Chavez on the Kaffe roof?

I would so try to pick that up.

Your art is stunning as always man.

Devise the puzzles. Destroy the hero. Defeat the player.

It certainly looks like something I would pay to play... It is possible to say how much is going to cost right now?!...
