Var and the Vikings is supposed to be an educational game. I'm not fooled. This game can't possibly have anything to do with the tedious stuff parents use to torment their kids with. It looks absolutely exciting and the kind of cerebral offering I am certain I will immensely enjoy. Provided it reaches its funding goal on Kickstarter, that is, which momentarily (also, sadly) doesn't look like such an easy thing to pull off.

Anyway, if programming the brains of Vikings using A.I. tools in order to battle steampunk robots is your thing, you'd better be pledging and helping Var happen. Admittedly, it might even provide you with some game developing skills too!
