A new project: Dragon Reign
Posted by M.Andersson 2011-04-21 21:34:58 (+0200)
A strategic RPG like the Fire Emblem games. As always this will probably never be completed but the development speed right now is good. But as always there is a lot of work left...
Versus #6 released for AmigaOS 4 with the Torch engine
Posted by M.Andersson 2010-04-27 14:07:47 (+0200)
The first diskmag issue using the Torch engine is finally released. It is the AmigaOS 4 version of Versus #6. It was released alongside with the 68k version. The AmigaOS 4 version can be downloaded from http://os4depot.net/.
Viking tec. homepage status?
Posted by M.Andersson 2010-03-26 16:01:43 (+0100)
The Viking Tec. site may be moving to a new location. When and where is not yet decided. A new project in JavaEE is taking up most time now and the diskmag engine has been on hold for a few months. Maybe something will be released soon with the engine but an official release of the engine may be delayed even longer.
Diskmag engine got a name: The Torch
Posted by M.Andersson 2009-08-26 18:08:42 (+0200)
And info about the engine can be found under Current Projects. The engine is almost finished too now as the text parser bug is now fixed.
Discmag engine continues to evolve...
Posted by M.Andersson 2009-08-20 18:11:56 (+0200)
The configuration options are continously growing and the engine is getting closer to a first release. A bug in the text parser has been identified that must be resolved before the release. The engine instruction articles are being worked on too.

About Viking Technology

History

Viking Technology was founded in Skelleftea (northern Sweden) around 1993 as an Amiga demoscene group. A couple of scene products was released at local demo parties in Skelleftea as well as at bigger parties like Midwinter (Umea) and Jamaica Rom Party (Stockholm).
The last remaining member, Menthos, of Viking Tec. was finally recruited by the Amiga scenegroup Nukleus in 2006 and changed Viking Technology to a general next generation Amiga software development entity.

Current Members in Viking Technology: Magnus Andersson (aka Menthos/Nukleus, DrNoID)
