Description

EON ALTAR all started with three friends, a few beers, and fond memories of our high-school DnD adventures. Together, we dreamt of creating a game that would capture the shared excitement of tabletop role-playing, taking place in an original fantasy setting enriched through years of pen-and-paper storytelling.

We pulled from our experiences as AAA video game developers, as well as from our connections in the movie and TV industries, and secured initial funding to hone our vision. We initially envisioned the game as centered on a large tablet PC, but later reinvented it as the couch co-op experience it is today.

Throughout development, we benefited from the generous support of the Canada Media Fund and counted on an indie team of amazingly talented developers. Building EON ALTAR has been one of the most difficult, rewarding things we have ever done. All that while keeping control of our IP, too!
