Description

We are an interdisciplinary team of engineers, mathematicians, artists and other creatures located in Zurich, Switzerland. Our goal is to create unique gaming experiences that are settled in the Arafinn Universe. At Sycoforge, we believe that a good game starts with unparalleled dedication and attention to detail. In fact, it depends on it. That’s why, unlike other studios, our first step was to develop an all-embracing universe. Only then did we elaborate a concrete game concept.

About the Forge

Founded by two Zurich-based engineers with a passion for immersive alternate reality gaming, Sycoforge Games is today an interdisciplinary team of engineers, mathematicians, artists, and creative architects in Switzerland. Working out of their uniquely and originally curated gaming universe, Arafinn, where never-before-heard languages and units of measurement are used, Sycoforge Games has been developing the Arafinn Universe since 2009. 

Sycoforge, as a Ltd. company, was founded in 2017 by Ismael Wittwer and Michela Rimensberger.

Arafinn Universe

Since 2009 we’ve been working on the fabled World of Arafinn, which forms a self-contained fantasy universe. Over the years this world has grown and evolved to consist of 25 provinces with 2600 cities and villages inhabited by more than 600 families, clans and tribes. We also described the four main languages (Tirdish, Hilduir, Valdyrish, and Omturu) spoken across the lands. Each language has its own grammar and alphabet. We even built the world’s different units of measure (time, distance, weight, etc.) from scratch to breathe life into the Arafinn Universe.

Arafinn - Return to Nangrim

The first installment of the Arafinn Universe will be called 'Arafinn - Return to Nangrim' and centers around the story and the legacy of the almost forgotten nation of the Stonebeards who used to live in the inhospitable realms of the Nimbor Mountains.

Return to Nangrim is a first-person fantasy game which involves exploration, research, puzzle solving and defense strategies in order to unveil the secrets and story of Nangrim.

Procedurally generated content and puzzles guarantee a different gaming experience for each and every player. Although the focus is not on fighting, the player should be prepared to defend himself against the dangers that are lurking in the shadows. To successfully survive in the countless halls of Nangrim the protagonist must fall back on the ancient knowledge of the Stonebeards. Concealed in numberless books the Stonebeards‘ wisdom is waiting for the player to be discovered.
