Realms Beyond – A classic turn-based fantasy RPG

Gamescom 2018 – What a ride!


As you know, me and my guys from Ceres Games went to this year’s Gamescom in Cologne, Germany,
which is the biggest computer game exhibition in the world!

Given this huge opportunity to show the world what we have achieved in the past two years we
decided that we couldn’t just come, set up a computer, stick a poster on the wall, and sit there for six
days? Oh no! We came and brought a cabinet! A cabinet, you may ask, what’s that all about?

Well! Let me enlighten you: As some of you may be aware of, I just cannot do anything without
it being epic. So Peter, our big master chief (srsly he’s tall :D) brought this old cabinet for me to
to decorate the booth with. And so I did! As you can see it’s filled to the brim with all sorts of magic
and let me tell you something: It’s the same kind of magic you can find in our game!

Here’s the thing. Without the help of the amazing people of, Alex Streb from and my very dear friends over at Kaptorga, who provided us with beautiful items
like crystals, armor pieces, swords, moral support, and way too much love to handle, this booth would
not have been possible. All of us invested heart and soul to create something that had the potential to
inspire people and carry them off into a little fantasy world. You guys rock and will be forever in our
hearts! Hope to see y’all soon!

Furthermore we want to give a very warm thank you to the company Trusted Events and their whole
team for providing us with powerful technical equipment and their expertise in setting up exhibition
booths at conventions, especially Gamescom. Special thanks to the head of the company, Stefan Kinner,
as well as Felix Fauner, Thomas Schäfer and Stefan Blöckinger for their unwavering support, without
which our presence at Gamescom wouldn’t have been such a great success!

After we made ourselves comfortable a bit and arranged some ivy and really rustic chairs, our booth
attracted some great people who actually became new friends! How awesome is that?!

There was a lot of fun and craziness going on, like always when friends visit you at the booth. 😉
We met all sorts of interesting people like cosplayers and even my dear Kaptorga colleague
Johannes who performed with his Saber Project on stage in the cosplay village. On top of that,
German streamer Royal Phunk did a double take at our booth ❤

And just when I thought it couldn’t get any more awesome than this, another thing happened.
I gotta admit I cried twice that day out of pure joy and being overwhelmed. I got recognized by people
passing by, and new opportunities arose. And then we won the prize for the best Indie Arena Booth.

But most of the time we were busy handing out gift vouchers to people who were interested in the game.
Gift vouchers? you may ask. Gift vouchers! Right before Gamescom, Peter had the idea to put people’s
faces into the game in case they decided to back us on Kickstarter.

Realms Beyond is going to be supportable on Kickstarter, starting in October this year!

That’s right! And I will be making something decorative for you guys to wear as well. We’re soon
going to announce a bit more of what we have in store for you.

Thank you guys so much for stopping by our booth and for all the compliments you guys showered
us with! It was a real pleasure meeting you all and listening to your little stories about when you played
Dungeons & Dragons, Ultima, and Baldur’s Gate! Hope we’ll meet again soon!
