The Vikings are back!
Loki, known from the Nordic sagas as a versatile god of lies and weaver of many intrigues against his divine "colleagues", has been banned from Asgard by Odin as a punishment for the trouble caused by the Midgard serpent. Now Loki is plotting revenge and searching for a possibility to sneak back into Asgard and pay Odin back. Out of spite, he abuses our four human heroes--Sigurd, the Frank, Hatschi, the brave Saracen, Bjami, and Crya--with his intrigues and traps. Embark on adventures and quests to help your allies wrest free from Loki's insidious machinations, whether it's a plague of serpents or the demon wolf Fenris dropping by for a rather unexpected visit. Ensure the health and safety of your people as you start with but a humble town and work your way up to a large city. Cultures - Northland offers the best combination of strategy and adventure!

Cultures Northland is a Nordic themed RTS that was originally released back in 2002. What separates this game from most other RTS games is that it also includes city building and Sim like elements. Your villagers will have different kinds of jobs depending on whether or not they are male or female and will build up experience in what they are doing the more they do it. They might be fighting, harvesting resources, or creating things. Become good enough at one profession allows someone to take on another, so you will need someone else to fill in the old role, this can lead to a lot of micromanaging. The graphics are not very impressive, even for their time, but the cartoony and colorful look of the art style makes it more appealing. The audio is good, both soundtrack and sound effects. It's not a game that necessarily does everything that well but if you are looking for a different kind of RTS this can be a good one for you to try, even more so because of the low price point.
