You also travel with your Viking ship through a procedurally generated world and collect resources to prepare your village for an approaching winter threat.

Viking-focused survival game
What does ASKA offer in terms of gameplay? ASKA is about the life of a Viking. This includes everyday, genre-typical tasks such as hunting and fishing, gathering resources, and crafting items. Additionally, you can build houses, workshops, farms and castles, as well as defensive structures.
Of course, the life of a true Viking also includes traveling to distant lands, which is why you can pilot your own Viking ship in ASKA. This should also be changeable individually. The game’s Discord server also says that you can transform into a crow and explore the map by flying.
Once you arrive in a new country, you can build outposts and supply lines that supply your settlements with resources. You can also assign various tasks to villagers in your settlements so that they support your tribe. You can also tame wolves and make them your loyal companions.
Your survival in ASKA is made difficult by a dynamic weather system with different seasons and mystical opponents. To still have a chance, you can learn skills and powers. It is also possible to perform combinations of attacks with different melee weapons and use a bow or dodge enemy attacks.
