Atomhawk in partnership with development studio Lantern Interactive, today launched a Kickstarter campaign for The Realm, a new graphical adventure game for PC that promises to reinvent the genre. The Realm is said to transport you to a beautifully crafted world, where 3D and 2D artwork combine to deliver a captivating and unique game world.
Atomhawk call the art style ‘Western Art, Eastern Heart’, due to its blend of epic western fantasy art, captivating narrative and heart warming character relationships, influenced by Japanese creators like Miyazaki.
The story follows a young girl called Sarina, who embarks on an epic quest to save her dying mother, on the way she befriends Toru, a giant stone golem – the unlikely couple go on a treacherous adventure together, across wild and beautiful lands.
The Realm is set in the far distant future, when the world has been reclaimed by nature. Once proud cities now lay abandoned – overgrown with strange plants and twisted vines. Magic and mysticism has returned to earth and there are strange creatures lurking in the forests.
In The Realm, the player controls both heroes – Sarina and Toru. To complete the adventure you must learn to utilize the unique abilities of both characters to solve the many puzzles and overcome the threats that dwell in The Realm.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
