HAIMRIK unleashed the power of words today!
PRAGUE, Czech Republic, 19 June 2018 – 1C opened the magic book today and released Haimrik – the monochrome action adventure, full of warriors, wizards, dragons, ogres, a man-eating lioness and a couple more odd characters. Haimrik uses words as the core of its gameplay mechanics, where they not only present the narrative, but they can also become real objects for the young scribe Haimrik, the game’s main character.
The game is now available for purchase for Windows PC via SteamTM and other digital stores, and on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One via digital download.
The conspicuous black humor puts a red mark in the otherwise monochromatic, sepia toned world of Haimrik, as pools of blood and piles of gore fill the screen on occasions. The magic book at Haimrik’s disposal is a powerful weapon and although he might be using it wisely, his enemies should definitely stand out of his way, as he searches for his lost mother throughout the fairytale medieval realm that is his home. Being a walking larder for his “friend”, lioness Masamba, he often finds himself in the role of the Word Warrior, solving puzzles and fending off adversaries just by using the words he comes across - literally.
Awards for Haimrik – Best Art Award and Innovation Award finalist at BIG Festival 2018; official selection at IndieCade Europe; nomination for the Gamer's Voice at the SXSW; nomination for Indie Awards at MomoCon in Atlanta!
“Haimrik has a really cool idea at its core. If you’re into brutal cartoons, then you’d probably dig its personality.” – Destructoid
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.
