Developed by independent developer Below the Game, Haimrik makes good use of one of the greatest powers known to mankind – the power of words. Players will have to choose their words carefully when guiding Haimrik, a young scribe and the game’s main hero, on his perilous journey through the treacherous pages of the Words Warriors’ magical book. The red of blood is one of the few colors used in the game, and it contrasts nicely with the hand-drawn sepia style of the medieval fairytale world. Together with the many eccentric characters and omnipresent dark humor, Haimrik is sure to entertain!
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!
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.
