Have a gander below for more details on these two new titles below.

About Thorgal

Players will take on the role of the main character and experience many adventures known from the comics, encountering dangerous bandits, formidable monsters, and invincible gods – but also powerful allies.

Thorgal is based on the legendary comic series by Grzegorz Rosiński and Jean Van Hamme. Players will take on the role of the Viking, Thorgal Aegirsson, in an adventure game with RPG elements that could be a strong competitor to The Witcher 4, thanks to the use of UE5 with proprietary extensions and utilizes cutting-edge technologies such as photogrammetry and AI.

Adventures of the most famous Viking has been published since 1977 and translated into 18 languages, selling over 20 million copies. The legendary comic book series serves as a basis for the game. The story of Thorgal, a mysterious “star child” protecting his loved ones from both humans and the wrath of vengeful gods, has become a permanent part of the fantasy canon.

About The Night Wanderer

The game is based on the iconic book series “Lord of the Ice Garden” by Jarosław Grzędowicz. This four-volume saga, creatively blending science fiction with dark fantasy elements, is considered the author’s pinnacle achievement alongside novels such as “Ash and Dust” or “The Book of Autumn Demons.” Recognized by both readers and critics, the series has won many awards, such as the Zajdel, Nautilus, and Sphinx, and has permanently etched itself in the hearts of fantasy fans.

The Night Wanderer will offer gripping, soulslike gameplay with elements of RPG and adventure games based on a dynamic and innovative combat system.

Players will take on the role of Vuko Drakkainen – a mercenary sent to the mysterious planet Midgaard to find a lost scientific expedition. The storyline combines science fiction with traditional fantasy. The gameplay will feature a compelling protagonist, an engaging story, and a vivid, extraordinary world shaped by mysterious forces.

The production is developed in consultation with Jarosław Grzędowicz himself and under the auspices of the publishing house Fabryka Słów, with the creators pledging to make every effort to ensure that the gameplay fully captures the spirit and atmosphere of the novels.
