'Return to Nangrim' (ALL) - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 8, 2021 @ 12:00 a.m. PST

Return to Nangrim is a first-person story-heavy immersive fantasy adventure with survival and RPG elements.

Settled in the epic self-contained Arafinn universe, Return to Nangrim is a VR-playable first-person fantasy adventure game with exploration, puzzle, RPG, and survival elements.

 The players are invited to an epic immersive transmedia gameplay adventure where they will have to prove their wits and skills to unveil the secrets and story of Nangrim. Explore Nangrim, once the great capital of the Stonebeards in the Nimbor mountains, overrun and destroyed by waves of bloodcurdling Uturi, which lies abandoned in the depth of the mountains. Abandoned, but neither deserted nor forgotten. Craft weapons to defend against creatures of the dark. Learn Hilduir, the runic language of the dwarves, collect and combine items to interact with the environment, and piece together the story, puzzles, and culture of this long-forgotten nation.

Sycoforge is developing Ā«Return to NangrimĀ» as a VR-compatible game. This means the teams' approach is to enable seamless switching in and out of VR at any time during the gameplay experience. Therefore, players will not need VR equipment to get the lore-heavy fantasy adventure experience, but players who own equipment already can immerse themselves in VR to explore epic throne halls and mountain caves. 

Go on an epic adventure and unveil the legends woven around the Stonebeards, the once glorious dwarven family living in the northern Nimbor Mountains. The fabled world of Nangrim awaits you.

The teaser trailer provides a first insight into the fabled universe of Arafinn to fantasy and adventure communities alike. The teaser shows wide-open landscapes with monumental dwarven statues, and a dwarf which though he looks troubled seems warm-hearted. Also, the teaser introduces possible enemies, a bold human-like creature packed in armor and equipped with a spear, and also shows zombie-like beings that now roam the darkness of the lost kingdom. Strong visuals and epic dwarven music give the teaser a Tolkien-style feeling.

Key Features:

  • Explore epic locations and unveil their secrets. Collect, combine and craft items, and interact with the environment to progress.
  • Find and craft weapons to defend against the dangers that lurk in the dark. Not all creatures have left the mountain fortress.
  • Become a master blacksmith. Learn to forge like the dwarves of old.
  • Learn Hilduir, the runic language of the dwarves, to piece together the story, puzzles, and culture of this long-forgotten nation.
  • Procedurally generated content and puzzles guarantee a different gaming experience for every player.
  • Your torch is essential: it is not only a flame to light your way but also your primary weapon of defense. Learn how to craft to upgrade it to its full potential; keep it close when the darkness closes in.

Return to Nangrim is in development for PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam), scheduled for Q1 2022.
