Description

Imperium42®, LLC is a small, independent game Studio with a worldly team founded by Dylan Hunt from USA and Elsa Hunt from Taiwan, known for their flagship title, Throne of Lies (PressKit). Imperium42 communicates remotely via Discord with Agile strategies - for what they lack in number, they make up for with expertise within the field.

Imperium is Latin for Empire, or “Absolute Power”, combines with their slogan, “Empowered by Gamers”, thus: gamers, themselves, have the power to create empires of virtual worlds! Imperium42 takes great stride in participating live with both fans and contributing back to the indie community.

Why 42? 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything! Gaming is the answer to freedom, creativity, storytelling, and to live within dreams.

Timeline

2016

Imperium42 started out as a "husband-and-wife" team - Dylan, the developer and Elsa, business development. The decision to expand was in the early-stages of their flagship title, Throne of Lies, as a response to speed up development. While planning for a Kickstarter, Imperium42 posted their idea on Greenlight Concepts to see how the community would react: The result was very positive with 99% "thumbs up", even after hundreds of votes remaining over the course of several months.

2017

In 2017, Throne of Lies was successfully funded on Kickstarter and currently in closed beta testing on Steam after being Greenlit within 15 days of posting.

Throne of Lies launched September 29th, 2017 (9AM PST) on Steam with almost 1,000 consecutive users playing at the same time during the launch event.

2018

As of the end of February, 2018, Imperium42 has sold ~50,000 copies of the game and has considered Throne of Lies a great success as their first flagship game!

The dev team has publicly announced this year's development to contain a revamped UI, overall polishing of quality-of-life features, implementing statistics, and boosting Twitch engagement features, such as the "Butler" extension (coming soon); and this is only the beginning!

2019

As for the future, we will continually refine Throne of Lies and provide free updates. We are dedicated to provide a better gaming experience and plan to craft more games to come. Throne of Lies will not be our only game!
