“[The game] takes fans and singer Ivar Nikolaisen on an epic quest through a retro-style maze where they are tasked with finding the other band members, as well as defeating the ghost of Tagholdt, who haunts a local museum and is a character from the song ‘Fanden ta dette hull!”

The band added:

“Your favorite superheroes are finally back — in a game where you can swing a REAL axe!”
