In the windswept northern mountains,
in a cold and gloomy grotto,
slumped upon a throne of foe-skulls,
a barbarian sits brooding...
-The Song of Steel

Barbarian Odyssey is the next game by MythoLogic Interactive, a sidescrolling romp through a weird and wondrous world of sword and sorcery.

The game will feature meaty hack-and-slash combat, varied enemies and levels, challenging boss fights, a cartoonish retro aesthetic, a fun and bittersweet story, a level editor, great modding support, and more!

It is a long-planned, loose sequel to our 2009 Flash game Barbarian Onslaught: The Secret of Steel.
