Announcing The Realm Crowd Story

Hello!

We've got an exciting new announcement to make about how you can get involved in The Realm's next big adventure and as you are our most favourite people we're giving you a look at it before we tell anyone else!

Although we were gutted not to achieve our Kickstarter target and get the game off the ground, we were astounded by the level of support we received, people's passion for the artwork and the ideas they shared. So we thought long and hard about how we could embrace this passion and creativity and use it to make something new and exciting that could still bring The Realm to life. 

And so the Crowd Story was born. We're now inviting you to use our Crowd Story web platform to write your own story inspired by the original Realm artwork. The best story will be made in to an amazing animated storybook for tablet devices and published on the app store, with the winning author receiving a cut of the profits from its sale. 

The competition launches today and runs to the 11th May and is free and open to all. Participants just need to sign up by registering on the http://therealmgame.com. Once registered, you will be presented with 26 beautifully illustrated images and asked to use them in any order to create your own unique story, simply by typing your text underneath. There are also four blank "wild card" images where you can describe what's in the scene to create their own additional content. 

The winner, as well as receiving a share of the profits, will also have their wild card scenes brought to life by one of Atomhawk's world-class artists. Runner-up prizes include copies of The Art of Atomhawk book and limited edition Realm prints. 

We're totally relying on the crowd to make this a success, so even if you don't see yourself as a budding author, why not check it out anyway or share it with someone you think could make it as a winner and published author! 

Thanks again for all your support.

The Realm Team

Hello everyone,

Sorry we've been so quiet since the campaign. We needed to take a small breather and reflect on where we were. But rest assured things are afoot once more!

If you have a few minutes it would be great to have your opinion on a matter that we considering:

Update #16

What Happens Next?

Dearest Backers,

So we've reach the end of our Kickstarter campaign and we must thank-you so much for all your amazing support throughout the last 30 days. You are all incredible. It didn't end up the way we would have liked it but still we achieved an amazing amount of pledges and that is all thanks to you. For example did you know we are one of the top funded UK game Kickstarters ever!?

We may not have have won the battle but the war is not over yet!

The lack of US payments was a crucial factor in hurting our campaign. So we plan to relaunch the campaign later this year with a US account. Also a lot of you wanted to see some game footage so we are going to work on that too and come back stronger!

Of course we will need to call on your kind generosity once again - so we will be in touch!

We don't want to rely on Kickstarter to be able to contact you, so *please* connect with us on one of more of our channels:

We've created a mailing list you can sign up to here: http://eepurl.com/y_2mH

Also we still have our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/therealmgame and our twitter account @TheRealmGame

Speak soon and thanks once again!
