Description

Imperium42 Game Studio is a very small, worldly team founded by Dylan Hunt from USA and Elsa Hunt from Taiwan. We communicate remotely via Discord with Agile strategies - for what we lack in number, we 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 the "indie dev" community with their numerous open-source contributions.

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. After hiring a second developer, that was all that was needed to craft the finest online, multiplayer code that duo developers could come up with. While planning for a Kickstarter, Imperium42 posted their idea on Greenlight Concepts to see how the community would react: 99% "thumbs up".

2017

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

The launch date is set for September 29th, 2017 (9AM PST) on Steam.

2018+

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.
