Oberhaching, Germany, August 09, 2022 - Indie publisher Toplitz Productions proudly announces its collaboration with Turkey-based RealityArts Studio. As part of this cooperation, Toplitz will release the visually stunning action game Unawake worldwide in late 2023.

The new title by RealityArts Studio, which has already received several international awards and has twice won the Epic Megagrant, focuses on brute action in a dystopian apocalypse. Audiovisually driven by RealityArts co-founder and renowned design icon Ismael (Ismail Kemal Ciftcioglu), Unawake is characterized by a unique art direction and visual style that pushes the boundaries of Ismael's creative imagination even further after switching to Unreal Engine 5. The easy-to-learn, yet hard-to-master combat system as well as the dynamic soundtrack further immerse you in the opulent game world of Unawake as you try to survive in an end-time caused by angels and demons.

Stefan Berger, Head of Business Development Toplitz Productions, comments: "We are very much looking forward to this collaboration. Both the creative vision behind Unawake and the technical expertise that RealityArts Studio brings to the table, convinced us to support this project. With this visually very impressive action game we have the opportunity to efficiently expand the range of our portfolio and attract a new target audience for Toplitz' titles."

"The talks with Toplitz felt good from the beginning”, adds Ismael. "We continue to enjoy complete creative freedom and can fully concentrate on development. I feel the support of the entire team at Toplitz and know that I can rely on decades of experience in publishing and marketing to present Unawake to the widest possible audience."

Fans of action-packed yet tactical skirmishes will be able to dive into the dark apocalypse of Unawake approximately in Q4 2023. The first teaser trailer will give you an impressive preview of the level, world and fight design. Face a fierce and epic battle against impossible odds, where you decide the fate of humanity and determine a future marked by merciless wars between creatures from heaven and hell. Deliver punishment or absolution to your opponents. You are the last bastion.
