Stoic Studio are a developer that have been working on what could easily be considered the manliest game in the history of gaming – The Banner Saga.

The Banner Saga is a turn based strategy RPG of sorts that features lavishly hand drawn art, lots of beards, and lots of epic, righteous battles.

The game has been playable in a multiplayer version called The Banner Saga: Factions, which is free on Steam. You can view the Steam page for Factions here.

You can check out the debut trailer below:

The Banner Saga is set for release on January 14th for PC.
