Dark Light

1C has proudly announced that Haimrik– a game with a new approach to the action adventure genre– will be coming to the PlayStation®4 and Xbox One this Autumn, apart from being released on Windows PC via SteamTM and other digital stores. The game will be available for hands-on presentation both to the media and to the general public at the forthcoming gamescom expo in Cologne.

Haimrik also presents itself in a new gameplay trailer which unveils more of the game’s locations, enemies and puzzles that players will come across. They will be guiding Haimrik on his perilous journey to find his mother and hopefully save the whole kingdom along the way. Although he’s just a young scribe, Haimrik has a great power at his disposal – the power of words. He literally 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.
