An unbelievably funny, Beautiful and exciting fantasy universe

Tormentosia, a land shattered like broken glass, was divided by its different races in a state of persistent conflict. Then came the imminent destruction of their world as Sorgoth, Devourer of Worlds, invaded the realm. Facing his calamitous frenzy, the six remaining kingdoms united their power, each providing essential resources to defend all living creatures with a new kind of technology.

The Steam Dwarves created the gyrophasm core, which was held within a piece of the Children of the Sources’ most sacred relic – the Aquanopticum. Hedonists, Sauromancers, Genetics, and Nosmarians completed the alliance, forging The Ultracore, located in the newly built city of Coreheim.

Ultracore is a social survival sandbox game set in the world of the Ultracore Pen&Paper created by our co-founder Hauke Gerdes. The game will combine three major pillars: a survival sandbox (the world of Tormentosia), a social hub (Coreheim, the location of the Ultracore) and adventures (diverse action experiences).

Tormentosia is the name for the land encompassing all known realms. Once, it comprised 36 empires with dozens of diverse races. After the attack of Sorgoth, Devourer of Worlds—and the following war—most of these nations fell victim to devastation. Their inhabitants who survived the bloodshed, fled to the lands yet unfallen. These remaining seven realms—now including the newly formed, joint nation of Coreheim—are as diverse in their flora and fauna as can be imagined.

Coreheim lies in the center and houses the Ultracore. Its shield protects the last seven realms from sharing the fate of other nations of Tormentosia at the hand of Sorgoth.

We’re not ready to announce that just yet, but we’re aiming for 2023 for Early Access and 2024 for the full release. Make sure to join our Discord to be the first to know and check our social media for project updates. And don’t forget to sign up for future tests too!
