'Haimrik' (ALL) Confirms June Release Date - Screens

Make words come to life in this action adventure unlike any other! Haimrik blends gameplay with the narrative of its story set in medieval times. Combined with crisp humor and rare visual style, Haimrik’s journey is sure to entertain.

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!

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.


Haimrik will be released on 5 June 2018 for PC via Steam and other digital stores, as well as PS4 and Xbox One via digital download.

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.

Key Features:

  • 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.
