Joystiq Streams: The Banner Saga [Update: Watch the replay!]


Sure, we already have Game of Thrones, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and countless other epic fantasies in which to get lost – but there's always room for more. There's especially always room for an epic, hand-painted, Viking fantasy RPG with music by Austin Wintory and turn-based strategy gameplay. There's always room for The Banner Saga.

The Banner Saga comes from Stoic Studio, a team comprised of ex-BioWare employees. In 2012, Stoic over-Kickstarted The Banner Saga, asking for $100,000 and earning $723,886. The game launched on PC and Mac on January 14, and now it's hitting the big time: Joystiq's live stream.

Journey with us through mead halls and giant-infested battlefields at 4PM ET on the Joystiq Twitch channel, hosted by Richard Mitchell and with gameplay by yours truly, Jessica Conditt. Skål!
