    Diverse fighting system

    Swords, axes, bows, magic or just bare fists. Weapons are carefully designed around certain strengths and weaknesses, which give you the opportunity to try out different tactics against different types of enemies and situations. Playing aggressively is certainly a viable approach, but there are lots of other ways to defeat opponents. You can sneak up behind your victim and deliver a killing blow, or you can outsmart them by using the environment to your advantage.

    There are a lot of possibilities. Choose the fighting style that you prefer.


    Solo or couch co-op

    Every bit of this game is designed to be played both single player and couch co-op. You can switch between game modes any time you want.
    The game will adjust the amount of enemies and difficulty level accordingly.

    Inspired by Iron-Age Europe

    We've derived much inspiration from Iron-Age Europe in combination with fantasy, myth and folklore elements. The heroes, the characters and the environments are not aimed to be historically accurate. Instead, this game has been designed foremost with gameplay in mind. It's purely a work of fiction in an underlying setting of European barbarian culture.


    Development history

    Unsung Warriors started in 2017 as a passion project by Mikel Fick and Ramon van Schaik. In 2018, a demo version of the game was released. As it was generally positively received, Ramon & Mikel followed up with a crowdfunding campaign to fund the development of a full version. Despite not reaching the goal of €30.000, the campaign was actually for 43% funded. Fueled by everyone's positive responses, development of Unsung Warriors was continued and a new crowdfunding was held in 2021. The 2021 campaign was successful, securing the development of Unsung Warriors. Later in 2021, Unsung Warriors received an investment from the Midgame Fund.
