1066 Flash game from Channel 4

1066Channel 4 has produced a 1066 Flash game to complement its TV drama of the same name (discovered via Wonderland). Developed by Preloaded, the game can be played as a singleplayer campaign or against online opponents. The interface is impressively complex, allowing the player to command each Viking unit, with added authentic taunts and insults. There’s even some squelchy blood effects during the battle sequences.

Hopefully the steep learning curve won’t put teachers and students off as there’s real depth to this game, and could really help bring the topic to life.
