Northland is an adventure strategy sequel to Cultures 2: The Gates of Asgard, an earlier title developed by Funatics and published for the PC by JoWood Productions. The game draws on Viking myth and legend to serve as a backdrop: The Viking god Loki tries to take revenge on Odin for his banishment for Asgard to Earth, and involves the four heroes in Northland in his revenge.

The game allows a choice of languages.

A modern updated release is now available from the Mac App Store.

I could not get this to run on my G3 at all. In Mac OS 9, I just got a black screen forcing a hard restart of the Mac. In OS X 10.4, the game quit unexpectedly immediately after launching.

I remember loving the demo when I was younger, great to see this game living on here on this site.

After some fiddling around I was able to get the game to load in both OS 9 and Mac OS X up to version 10.6.8, the language setup application on my copy was broken so I manually copied the files from the english setup folder (Northland CD/Setup Files/eng) to the appropriate locations in the DataX on my playing copy (data0001.lib goes in the lib folder and the two mpg's go into the FMV folder)

Now I'm off to see if it's as great as I remember it being!
