About our game
We are developing a digital autobattler card based 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 moral high you will dominate the fighting! This innovative game puts historical characters in cards moving combat on a grid format. 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.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a visionary and loving small family of professionals. We believe that making games should be as fun as playing them.
The position can either be on site or hybrid, part time or full time and even as an internship. The team members working here are all enjoying the journey of the project, full of passion. As we are not funded yet, we are working towards a system of revenue share in effect after the game has sales or reaches funding. This means right now there are no monthly salaries! Our offices are located in Copenhagen at Amager and Frederiksberg.
