• The game, Unknown Realm, goes live on Kickstarter!

    In 2012, game programmer Bruce Gottlieb showed the then top-secret game, Unknown Realm, to the attendees at the Commodore Vegas Expo. It was so secret that no one from outside his team was allowed to photograph or videotape his session. The
    CommVEx attendees saw a potential game full of fun, and they were excited that it was to be released.
    Fast forward to now... That early version of Unknown Realm is now graduating to the release version, "Unknown Realm: The Siege Perilous", and Bruce is putting it up on Kickstarter. Go to

    Available for the Commodore 64 (NTSC and PAL), Windows, and Mac, Unknown Realm is a new, 8-bit, role-playing game in the style of Ultima RPG's. At the above Kickstarter page, you'll be able to see all the details of the game release, including
    video shots, screenshots, and screen animation. Also at the page, you'll be able to see the many and various pledge amounts to get this game released.
    As one who saw the early game version at CommVEx, I am excited that Unknown Realm is finally going public.
