Doki Doki Ragnarok is a viking visual novel in which you pillage and date villages around the world. It takes place in a ridiculous world where viking raids are like going on a date – with the village!
For vikings, raiding a village is more than warfare: it means dating, flirting, and understanding each other consensually. Show that you carry a conversation as easy as you carry an axe.

Doki Doki Ragnarok is a dating simulator, in which you encounter and flirt with various villages. Choose from multiple playable vikings, with different available voice variants. Starting from one of several maps, you meet quaint villages, fancy merchant towns, or imposing castles of legend. Select dialog options and viking actions to win their hearts!

Dialog and viking actions can greatly influence a village’s opinion of you. The better you do, the more hearts you collect over multiple turns. Retry any village or character encounter to see alternative lines, or to try for hidden achievements. At the end of your date, the number of collected hearts determines if you have conquered the village’s heart, or if you have to retreat from conquest in shame.

To find true love, and bring glory to Odin, your viking travels through various countries: England, France, Sweden, and even the mystical land of Iceland, where Valhalla is said to be. You will not only find quirky villages, but also a cast of different characters to chat with: outraged peasants, smug rivals, threatening goats or adorable fluffy dogs.
