We are a game startup founded by two students in Hamburg. At the end of 2020, we came up with an idea for a new game technology. Our goal is to develop a multiplayer experience with a high-resolution and fully destructible world. For this, we are developing our own voxel-based game engine from scratch in C++.
At the beginning of 2021, we developed our concept. Next, we quit our jobs and founded a company. Gamecity Hamburg supported us financially and the Startup Dock provided us with office space. In 2022, we secured further funding from IFB Hamburg. This has allowed us to expand our team, hiring Nik as a Business Developer and a freelance 3D Artist.
For the upcoming year, we aim to develop our prototype into a new multiplayer-capable game engine. This includes the atomic destructible world, a multiplayer mode, and classic FPS mechanics.
