The Norwegian Film Fund gives Skalden Studios Bubbins: The Green Monster 600.000 NOK in project development support. The expert panel adviced the film fund that the game looked like great fun to play. We are grateful for the recognition as well as the support, and aim to prove the panel right when the game is launched during the fall 2007.

Skalden Studio

The skald was the poet of the Old Norse society. The creative richness of the mythology, the mundane realism of the sagas and the boldness of the vikings as seafaring merchants and warriors have never stopped catching imaginations everywhere.

Skalden Studio is an independent game developer located in Oslo, the very heart of old viking territory. The goal of Skalden Studio is to make stories come alive in the media of a new millennium. We tap into the cultural heritage of our ancestors for impulses. From this heritage Poul Anderson found inspiration for his Broken Sword, J.R.R. Tolkien for his Lord of the Rings and William Shakespare for his prince of Denmark.

But we also step boldly into new territory, and create universes never before seen by creature nor man.
