UX Researcher / Sociologist / Techno Anthropologist for a growing History game

Salary Unpaid

Do you also think it would be interesting to understand why the market does not focus on meaningfull games? Do you have an idea how we can involve users in developing a history game? We would like to know their needs and pains to grow our business and make a relevant game for them. So we are looking for a person to help us find users and conduct research and tests on our users.


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.
