About our game
We are currently developing a prototype of our digital educational card game set in a historical/ mythological universe, starting with the viking times. The aim is to inspire learning of history. The upcoming game is in pre production do you want to be a part of the journey?
The player will be taking charge of a civilization that will go through history. Letting you experience what happened in the past according to historical records. Decision making and dilemmas will create an engaging gameplay. While diplomacy, trade and wars are bound to start conflicts. This innovative game sees historical characters as cards moving and combat happening on a battlefield grid format. The inspiration comes from: Magic The Gathering, Civilizations, Age of Empires and Heroes.
