Eddaheim is a collective of storytellers and developers creating breathtaking experiences powered by new technologies. We are the home of stories. We are currently developing the action narrative game Neon Knights: Humanity Erased using Unreal Engine.
Neon Knights: Humanity Erased started as a graduation project from the National Film School of Denmark in June 2019. We developed a cinematic benchmark test of the game running live in Unreal Engine and started seeking funding for a playable prototype.
The benchmark was created with Unreal Engine 4, Rokoko motion capture, Dynamixyz facial capture and a digital copy of Lars Mikkelsen, 3D scanned by Rigsters. We managed to impress the Danish Film Institute enough to finance a playable prototype which we started developing in January 2021.
Neon Knights: Humanity Erased is a psychological noir game set in a frozen Copenhagen in the year 2079. The story follows Nik Gates, played by Lars Mikkelsen, a digital exorcist belonging to a secretive order called the Transenders. Behind The Wall of Copenhagen, its citizens are digitizing their consciousnesses and uploading them to the cloud at death. But as any other data, the human spirit is vulnerable to corruption. And should your new eternal life suffer enough corruption, you transform into a monstrous replica of your former self - A Holo. And the Transenders will find and erase you.
We are currently developing a gameplay prototype to demonstrate our combat and investigation mechanics, and are currently looking for new partners and potential investors. Interested? Say hi at email@example.com!
