Unknown Realm: April Update

Stirring Dragon Games have published another progress report to the Unknown Realms Kickstarter page, this time covering work done on the game in the month of April:


Lots of work on physical feelies this month. Quest journals are now in production and expected to be finished by the end of May. Same goes for the remaining tavern dice and Realm Stones. Manufacturing and dealing with suppliers and logistics is definitely the more tedious side of this project, but we know the end result will be well worth it!


Our illustrator, Raf, is busy working on finishing up the remaining monster illustrations needed for our pen & ink bestiary. These will be completed over the course of the next several months and then the final manual can go to print. Here are two sample illustrations from his latest batch (Brainoid and Giant Wasp) along with one of our all-time favorites (Drunken Tavern Rats) which we shared via twitter before but are posting here for all our backers:


Right after we posted last month’s update, Chris Huelsbeck sent us some new songs he was developing for Unknown Realm and wow! We are now more confident than ever that he was the right choice for this game. We think this soundtrack is going to be something special not only for fans of Chris, but also for fans of that highly melodic, old school RPG music that sticks in your head even when you are away from the game. This is exactly the kind of sound we were dreaming of for Unknown Realm and it’s exciting to see it materialize thanks to Chris’s magic. Just a reminder, you can support Chris and some of his other music on Patreon.

You can, if you are interested, back Unknown Realm today via MegaFounder. There are — or were, as of this writing — a few Collectors Edition kits available as backer rewards still; once these are gone, there will be no more produced. As of this writing, the game has raised $133,502 USD; its next stretch goal — the complete soundtrack by Chris Huelsbeck — is at the $150,000 USD mark.
