Out of the darkness comes Fall of Light!

1C is pleased to announce Fall of Light, a story-driven dungeon crawler set in a world consumed by darkness. Developed by RuneHeads, the game will come to Windows PC and Mac OS in the autumn via Steam and other digital stores. More information, together with a hands-on build, will be available at this year’s Gamescom.

Fall of Light takes the player into a dark world, where an old warrior leads his daughter towards the last remnants of sunlight. Only together will they be strong enough to defeat the enemies born from the Shadow. The lack of light in combination with stylized graphics underline the game’s grim atmosphere, both in the world above and the one below – the birthplace of the evil threatening to end the Era of Men.

The developers acknowledge their sources of inspiration in two other successful titles, Dark Souls and ICO. And as distinct from one another as they are, combining elements from each one has brought about a story quite deep and believable. The eternal battle between light and dark, good and evil, seems that it could finally be decided throughout the storyline of Fall of Light, despite the characters’ efforts to postpone the inevitable end. But a deeper truth is yet to be discovered...

"Ancestors" Announced!

1C is pleased to announce Ancestors, a squad-based real-time strategy with a strong focus on tactics. In close cooperation with developer Destructive Creations, 1C will bring Ancestors to Windows PC and Xbox One. Being equally dedicated to both platforms, the title features native gamepad support with an optimized command system for the quick reactions necessary in the RTS genre. More information, together with release dates and a hands-on build, will be revealed at this year’s Gamescom.

Following the teaser artwork released with the first announcement in March, Ancestors now has an in-engine rendered cinematic trailer, which brings us closer to the battles of the Middle ages, when many conflicts were resolved through violent, bloody war. Men fought bravely, fiercely and viciously at close range. But only a few would emerge victorious, while the motionless corpses of their fallen friends and foes were left buried in the blood-soaked mud beneath their feet.

The new trailer brings us not just the heat of battle, but also gives us a taste of Ancestors’ cinematic action camera, which will allow players to descend from the classic RTS ‘god view’ right down to the level of the warriors under their command. See what they see, feel what they feel, become one of them – before rising back up again to get a good overview of the battlefield, explore the environment and find ways to use it to their advantage. Ancestors, in its extensive campaigns covering 4 different nations, offers many different ways of creating tactical dominance and overall superiority on the battlefield.
About the game
Take command of your army as you storm through medieval Europe in an extensive series of campaigns. Choosing one of the four available nations – Viking, Anglo-Saxon, German, Slav – you will be tasked with more than just conquering, raiding and pillaging enemy camps, villages and towns. Only by utilizing the full range of available tactical options, taking strategic advantage of the environment, and managing your temporary bases and settlements, will you emerge victorious.

Ancestors is a historically accurate real-time strategy game influenced by historical events in the Middle Ages. The game combines resource management and base building with large-scale, squad-based battles across vast battlefields, all rendered in great detail thanks to the Unreal Engine 4 tech. Experience medieval bloodshed like never before, thanks to the cinematic action camera that puts you right in the middle of the battle at the press of a button.

Content update for REALPOLITIKS!

1C and developer Jujubee S.A. are bringing more content to Realpolitiks! The newly-developed content update will be available from 5th May via online stores, including Steam, to coincide with the release of the retail version in Central Europe. The update is free to all legal owners of the game.


The update adds brand-new tasks and challenges to the game, expanding the list of events originating in Europe. Playing as Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia or Austria, players will enjoy more political fiction and what-if scenarios based on actual political situations and historical facts. Within the 2020 scenario they can track the origin of San Escobar, the new Polish underwater colony in the Caribbean, and the worldwide diplomatic turmoil it creates. In other mini-scenarios, players will have to unite central European countries in order to create the Visegrad superpower and face the reborn Austrian Habsburg monarchy, or play for the Intermarium – a country competing with Russia for hegemony in Central and Eastern Europe.

Apart from new mini-scenarios, two new game features have been added: Culture conversion, and Renouncing territorial claims. The update also fixes known issues and fine-tunes Realpolitiks for a better, more optimized and enjoyable gameplay experience.

Realpolitiks is also coming soon to GOG.com, where it will launch with the new content.

REALPOLITIKS now on Mac App Store and Windows Store!

1C is happy to announce that Realpolitiks has been newly released on both the Mac App Store and the Windows Store. Developed by Jujubee, Realpolitiks was launched in February on Steam and through other digital outlets. The Windows and Mac App Stores bring the title even closer to players on each platform, while certifying compatibility across these systems at the same time.

The Mac App Store version of Realpolitks has been made available in partnership with MacPlay, an experienced Apple publisher. Bringing Realpolitiks to the Windows Store was a very time- and cost-effective process, thanks to our close cooperation with Microsoft and the straightforward user experience of Microsoft’s developer tools.

The Windows platform will also enable future updates and expansions to be seamlessly integrated. 1C is looking forward to bringing more exciting titles from its portfolio to both platforms soon.

The Watchmaker demo is out!

1C is pleased to announce that it’s time to release the public demo of The Watchmaker, a puzzle adventure under development by Micropsia Games. With the demo, players can finally check out the steampunk atmosphere of the clock tower, and see how heavily every second of accelerated aging weighs on our hero Alexander, the clock’s keeper and main character. It’s also a chance to test his abilities to manipulate time, which will help him survive and solve the puzzles on his way to uncovering the mystery of the sabotaged clock tower.


Working hard on finalizing The Watchmaker for its release on Windows PC via Steam in Q3 2017, the developers are also launching a Kickstarter to bring the game to Xbox One and Playstation 4 too. The campaign offers backers several added bonuses, according to their pledge level, up to having their own timeless stylized portrait included in the game! It is accessible through http://kck.st/2oCC0re.

About the game

In The Watchmaker, a puzzle-adventure game, players take on the role of Alexander. In his steampunk world of giant clock mechanisms, Alexander’s routine involves repairing his precious clock tower every day, adjusting its mechanisms, oiling the gears and polishing everything down to the smallest piece. For years, this is the only life he has known.

But one day Alexander is awakened by a mysterious voice. The voice warns him that something has gone wrong: someone, some unknown being, has sabotaged his beautiful tower! With the clock not working properly, time has gone mad. Consequently, Alexander starts ageing abnormally quickly, leaving him only a handful of time to repair the damage.

Guided by the mysterious voice and armed only with a magnetic glove and a bag of time bombs, he must travel the halls and arcades of the tower in search of the saboteur. Various obstacles, enemies and riddles buried in the clock’s intricate mechanisms stand in his way. But Alexander must push on to save the clock and restore time to its natural rhythm, all while gradually uncovering the mysteries of the tower and its even stranger past.

  • Steampunk puzzle-adventure set in 5 extensive locations
  • Diverse gameplay, with a mixture of exploration, puzzles, platforming action and boss fights
  • Environmental puzzles and special gadgets to solve them, such as magnetic gloves and time bombs
  • Unique ageing process that replaces the usual health bar

1C and Destructive Creations join forces for a new title!

1C is thrilled to announce that it will be working with indie developer Destructive Creations, adding their current work-in-progress title to its portfolio. In development since 2015, the game will take players into the early Middle ages, with both an extensive singleplayer campaign and intense online multiplayer, all built around real events and featuring historical accuracy and advanced game mechanics. More about the forthcoming title will be revealed on May 9th 2017 and a full-scale hands-on presentation is planned for this year’s Gamescom.

Despite being a relatively new indie team, some of Destructive Creations’ members have already worked with 1C on various other projects. Making good use of their collective experience, and anticipating the needs of today’s gamers, the DC team are now working on their third title, which will also be their most extensive so far. Although the developer is still dripping with controversy from their first – and most successful title, Hatred – they have managed to consistently bring games to market that are both of a high technical standard and appeal to many players.

“We do realize there has been a lot of controversy with their previous titles, but we see and value the team’s potential in its many strong individual talents, and are looking forward to working together, to publish their third game,” said Anton Ravin, the 1C Company’s Business development director.
“We always wanted to make a title like this one. All of our past work has been leading to this point. The name we’ve made for ourselves cuts both ways, and I believe the quality of our products and their captivating content will always be the stronger one. This is also why we chose 1C to be our partner on this project,” says Jarosław Zieliński, Destructive Creations’ CEO.

About the game

Human society has been divided. On one side, the natural course of human evolution has been disrupted. What started as an attempt to adapt to the harsh conditions of outer space and hostile planets, led to the creation of a weird race of transhuman cyborgs – the Augments. Driven by a desire to ‘liberate’ ordinary humans from the limitations of their wholly organic bodies, the Augments have launched a full-scale attack. Now we must defend our territory and fight back, to save our Kingdoms and all of humanity as we know it!
