Haimrik is coming to PC!

1C will make you weigh your words with Haimrik – a game with a new approach to the action adventure genre.  Developed by independent developer Below the Game, Haimrik will be coming to Windows PC in 2017 via Steam TM. You can also look forward to seeing it presented at the forthcoming Gamescom in Cologne this August.

Taking place in medieval times, the story of Haimrik places a new emphasis on words. They not only supply the narrative for the story, but also give the main character, a young boy named Haimrik, the means to progress on his difficult journey. He practically walks on words, activating some of them and turning them into physical objects. For example, if ‘fire’ burns him to a crisp, then ‘water’ can help him deal with it.

The funny but dangerous adventures of Haimrik and his eccentric friends also often color their monochrome game world with blood. Haimrik’s dark humor and unique gameplay will appeal to anyone who likes... well, dark humor and unique gameplay!

About the game


This unique action adventure game lets you become Haimrik, a young scribe trying to make a living in a medieval town full of warriors, sorcerers, dragons and dragon-riding sorcerer-warriors. But one book changes his whole life. With the help of Masamba, a hungry lioness who will protect him while constantly trying to eat him, he’ll venture out to take on the evil king and his elite generals, the Word Warriors.

Fortunately, Haimrik commands the Power of the Words! These are the stones in the path Haimrik walks, and he brings them to life as he steps on each one, willingly or not. Haimrik will need to activate the right words to defeat the various enemies that challenge him across numerous Word Worlds, with new puzzles appearing constantly throughout the game.

In an added touch, Haimrik will undoubtedly die many horrific deaths, leaving pools of red blood contrasting with the otherwise plain sepia-toned world.

Be part of a medieval revolution against the Word King and his elite warriors, and change the way you see words and stories forever.
  • Unique action adventure built upon interactive words.
  • Medieval comedy full of dark humor and over-the-top cartoon violence.
  • Rare sepia-toned view of a medieval fantasy world.
  • Eccentric characters to meet and adventure with, like the lioness Masamba who will protect Haimrik from harm... when she’s not trying to eat him.


Lantern coming to PC!

Lantern will be released on PC in November 2016, with support for both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, allowing players to further immerse themselves in its unique environment.

The lyrical story of Lantern takes us to an imaginary world, inspired by East Asian nature and architecture. A sad princess has spread a veil of anguish over the land, and all of the color and life has been drained away. But joy and love are slowly finding their way back, through a magical Red Lantern that roams the lands, gradually ridding them of sorrow and dreariness. The players’ task is to guide the lantern through the environment, spreading color and joy to everything in its path.

About the game

“Once upon a time, there was a very sad princess. She felt so unloved and unhappy that everything around her became grey and lifeless, and the entire land was deprived of color and joy. Our fable begins when a single, lonely lantern was lit in a faraway village…”
Be the wind and guide a beautiful sky lantern that spreads the powerful message of everlasting love, bringing life and color back to the world around you. Enjoy four beautiful East Asian-inspired worlds, each with a different theme, nature and architecture. Fly the magical red lantern as it spreads vibrant, happy colors throughout these sad, grey lands.

The influence of the lantern’s light not only changes the color of the world, but also has various other effects, such as igniting other lamps, restoring animals to life, and making windmills start spinning. Ultimately success will come once the kingdom is full of color and happiness has returned to the land.

Bring the powerful message of everlasting love to four East Asian-inspired worlds
Create wonderful lantern festivals, spreading warmth and joy
Restful music and peaceful sounds will accompany you on your journey
Immerse yourself in a relaxing experience – a virtual coloring book with an aesthetic atmosphere
Virtual Reality support (Oculus Rift and HTC Vive)

Through the Woods will scare you to death in October!

This award-winning third-person Norse horror adventure is scheduled for PC release in October 2016.

The game immerses the player in the dark, mysterious atmosphere of a deep forest, lit only by the moon and a hand torch, in which fear and uncertainty are fed by darkness. Based on their own experiences in the wild, the creative minds at independent Norwegian game studio Antagonist have created a realistic – but supremely eerie – game environment, spiced up with a thrilling story and dangerous mythological creatures.

About the game

Through the Woods is a third-person Norse horror adventure set in a forest on the western shores of Norway that tells the story of a mother and her missing son. Through reactive narration, the player experiences the mother’s re-telling of the events surrounding her son’s disappearance. Players follow the path of a terrified woman who has forced herself to enter this terrible place for the sole purpose of finding her son, in a setting heavily influenced by Norse mythology and Norwegian folk tales.

With Through the Woods, Antagonist have captured the feeling of the forest as they saw it as children, with all the fear and mystery that comes from roaming through it alone. This is coupled with a powerful story and high quality sound design, which in the darkness of the forest becomes a core mechanic. Through the Woods is a profound experience that directly delivers the feelings of loneliness and loss in a terrifying place...

  • Explore stunning environments and experience stories inspired by Norse mythology, Norwegian art and nature
  • Uncover dark tales of the past and present through reactive narration
  • Creative use of light and darkness generate deceptive environments
  • A frightening journey, accompanied by grim, beautiful sound design

Background information

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is a sequel to the critically acclaimed real-time tactics game Men of War: Assault Squad. Men of War: Assault Squad 2 features new single player style skirmish modes that take players from extreme tank combat to deadly sniper stealth missions. Commanders can now faceoff against opponents on various new multiplayer 1v1 – 4v4 maps. To truly bring the battles to life though there is the new 8v8 game mode designed for huge battles on spectacular maps. Like previous games in the series, Men of War: Assault Squad 2 includes the unique “direct control” feature which enables players to maneuver units using standard “WASD” controls rather than pointing and clicking. Using “direct control”, players can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks and fire armor-piercing shells at enemy emplacements, or take control of individual soldiers as they fight.

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 – Complete Edition includes both previously released DLCs, which brought not only new missions, but also enhanced features like AI bots for multiplayer or replay functionality.
