Throne of Lies: Medieval Politics

Description

Imperium42® LLC, or í42® for short, is an independent software and game Studio with a worldly team founded by Dylan Hunt (USA) and Elsa Hunt (Taiwan). í42 is known for their flagship title, Throne of Lies: Medieval Politics, an online PvP (social deduction) game on Steam. The studio communicates remotely through Discord.

Imperium is Latin for Empire, or Absolute Power, with the belief that gamers have the power to create empires of virtual worlds. í42 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 concious dreaming.

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 went into closed beta testing on Steam after being Greenlit within 15 days of posting.

Throne launched September 29th, 2017 (9AM PST) on Steam with nearly 1,000 consecutive players (CCU) during the launch event.

2018

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

The dev team publicly announced 2018's roadmap to include a revamped UI, overall polishing of quality-of-life features, implementing statistics and more.

2019

After successfully fulfilling our roadmap promises, the dev team further added game balance and content, nearing a 50% balanced win-rate for good vs evil factions.

At this point, Throne has generated ~$500k in revenue.

2020

Our new, silent partners joined the team in November and took Throne F2P (Free-to-Play) Dec 22.
