About our game
We are developing a digital card-based autobattler game in a historical and mythological universe. The aim is to make a historically accurate game that inspires people to immerse themselves into history. The upcoming game is in production check it out at our itch.io: https://gamucatex.itch.io/tectonicus
The player will be taking charge of a faction, either Viking, Frankian or English which they will follow through history. Letting you experience what happened in the past according to historical records. Battles take place online and in scenarios on a turn based board. You will lead your forces to your enemies lines and holding your morale high you will dominate the fighting! This innovative game puts historical characters in cards, where moving and combat happens on a grid-based battlefield. The inspiration comes from: Magic, Civilizations, Age of Empires and Heroes.
We are an early stage startup that is disrupting what games can be used for. By using history from the records with the help of our historians we are making a historical micro world which will give the player a better understanding of the past. This we see as meaningful gaming that creates greater value in people’s lives.
